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/
