How it works
Echinacea is a traditional remedy that helps to relieve the symptoms of colds, sore throats and tonsillitis. One of the ways that echinacea works is as a bactericide. It stimulates cells in the body called phagocytes, which destroy bacteria or other foreign bodies.
Eucalyptus oil has antibacterial, expectorant and cooling properties, and is often used for bronchial and throat inflammation, excess mucus, and to combat colds.
