  • Chamomile tea: This chamomile tea is found to be a natural soothing agent and has been known for its medicinal purposes which includes the treatment of sore throat, this tea also has some other properties associated with it  such as astringent, anti-inflammatory and antioxidative properties.

Any kind of irritation occurring in the respiratory tract (which includes this condition of sore throat as well) can be relieved with the application of this root of marshmallow. This root of marshmallow is available in various forms which are: 
  • Dried and in the form of capsule
  • In the form of a herbal tea
