For sore throats, laryngitis and other infections of the throat or mouth.
2partLicorice root powder
1partMarshmallow root powder
1partEchinacea root powder
1partGolden Seal root powderOrganically grown Golden Seal. It is not necessary to add the Golden Seal if infection is not present; i.e. if making these balls for irritation and soreness rather than for infection.
Peppermint oilA few drops
Mix first powdered herbs together.
Mix enough honey in to form into a thick paste. Add a drop or two of pure Peppermint oil.
Add Carob and more Licorice root powder to thicken, if necessary. Knead “pill dough” until it has the consistency of bread dough (smooth and elastic, not sticky).
Keep adding Carob (or Cocoa) until desired consistency is reached. Roll into pill size balls.
These will keep for months in the refrigerator. They should taste good, a bit like a peppermint drop, and feel soothing to the throat.
