HERBAL TREATMENT OF RESPIRATORY AILMENTS, NOSE AND THROAT: MOUTH AND GUM PROBLEMS NOSEBLEED SORE THROAT AND TOOTHACHE

Mouth and Gum Problems

1 part Sage leaves
1 part Marigold flowers
Infusion: gargle frequently (3 or more times per day)

2 parts Blackberry leaves

Marshmallow root

Nosebleed
Soak a wad of cotton wool with the fresh juice or a strong decoction of Shepherd's Purse and insert in the nostril. Bleeding is soon stopped.
The fresh juice is often quicker to apply, but to make a 'strong decoction' for urgent treatment: add 5-10 grams of the fresh or dried herb to 100 ml of water and allow it to boil in a covered vessel for a few minutes. The cotton wool can be soaked in the hot decoction and then air-cooled before application to the nose.
Stinging Nettle and Marigold, also highly effective, can be used in the same way.

Sore Throat and Tonsillitis
1 part Sage leaves
1 part Thyme herb
Infusion: gargle frequently (3 or more times per day)

Garlic: fresh cloves, peeled and chopped, then mixed in equal parts with honey — I teaspoon every 2-4 hours for acute conditions, otherwise 3 teaspoons per day
Sage and Thyme have an antiseptic/astringent action, and Garlic has definite antibacterial properties. For minor cases, use either remedy; for best results in more serious cases, combine both treatments.

Toothache
Clove Oil (essential oil)
Apply a few drops to tooth cavity, but avoid gums

1 part St John's Wort herb
1 part Chamomile flowers
Rinse mouth repeatedly with a strong infusion

Yarrow herb
Chew the fresh leaf
