Can you use essential oils to cure tonsillitis or really bad sore throat? What do you recommend?
Usually it's best to treat tonsilities with antibiotics but I've heard of people using essential oils to relieve soreness and reduce inflammation. Boil a quart of water and add either lemon oil, lavender oil or the eucalyptus oil. Place your head over the pot with a towel covering your head, and breathe the steam. But do note that this method might not be suitable for younger kids and babies. http://www.livestrong.com/article/302862-essential-oils-swollen-tonsils/Read more
