Sage, Spilanthes & Usnea for Your Throat

Every now and then all of us could use some support for our throat health. Urban Moonshine’s Throat Spray is blended to be powerful, yet gentle and soothing making it a wonderful ally in these times. The formula features sage, an herb that has been traditionally used in supporting the health of mucus membranes, especially the throat. Sage, which most of us are familiar with as a culinary herb, is in fact a super-star in our Throat Spray because it has so many qualities to offer. It coats and soothes, whiles its aromatic and astringent properties are drying to secretions and toning to the tissue it comes in contact with.

Alongside sage in this formula, you’ll find the spunky yellow-button-flowered spilanthes. This mischievous little plant contains some of the same properties as echinacea and leaves behind a memorable tingly sensation, offering a feeling of numbness in the throat.  Since spilanthes is so full of personality, the formula is balanced out by licorice and honey which, as you might imagine, are excellent for coating and soothing. 

The final herb that makes an appearance in Throat Spray is usnea, a pale green lichen found in abundance dangling from decaying evergreen trees in every continent except for Antarctica. Plants that grow in such wide ranges often have many uses, and usnea is no exception. We include it here because, among other things, the lichen is traditionally used to support optimal immune function.   

When you’re looking for something soothing and refreshing to support your throat health, I think you’ll be quite pleased and relieved to have our Throat Spray on hand.
