Info: 50 ml Pump-Action Spray Bottle
This spray may be just what the traditional country doctor would order to relieve a sore throat, primarily featuring a combination of two natural herbs which both have antiviral and antifungal properties, especially when applied directly to the tissues suffering from the inflammation.
Propolis is a collection of resins which bees gather from leaves and bark to use in various ways in their hives; those individual resins often operate as medicines to protect the plants they were produced in, and collectively, they have antiseptic and healing (through the formation of scar tissue) properties when people use it topically, and they have also been known to fight inflammations such as ulcers, internally.
Echinacea purpurea or Purple Coneflowers are prairie plants whose flowers have been used to fight colds for generations -- all the more so, now. Echinacea is likely most effective in liquid form on the areas it comes directly into contact with, due to an antiviral effect on the mucous membranes.
