Defence Throat Spray, with thyme, sage + propolis
Made in Dunedin, harvested in Otago
Defence Throat Spray combines herbs such as Central Otago harvested thyme and sage, and propolis, to help soothe and comfort a sore/scratchy throat, help stop bacteria getting into the respiratory tract, and act as a powerful first response for immune support from ills and chills.
Central Otago thyme has long been utilised for its powerful medicinal qualities. The climate range from extremely hot summers to frosty cold winters makes the thyme that grows there incredibly strong and the active constituent within it (thymol) super potent and effective. Effectively the plant thyme, needs its own immune system and that is the production of this constituent thymol.
Thymol is a powerful deterrent to other invading plants, bacteria, viruses or fungi, and by harvesting this plant. humans are also able to benefit from it’s ‘immunity and protection’. Thymol is both antibacterial, antiviral and has been used traditionally for years in Europe in order to help with winter ills and chills, bronchitis, coughs, sore throats and runny noses, as well as helping to act as a spasmolytic and expectorant.
Another health benefit of thyme: It's a good source of copper, fiber, iron, and manganese.
The sage plant has gray-green edible leaves and flowers ranging in color from blue and purple to white or pink; there are more than 900 species of sage around the world. Sage has a long history of medicinal use, as it haswonderful astringent and antimicrobial properties which work well used topically for sore throats, gingivitis and tonsillitis.
Propolis can support healing, with antibacterial, antiviral, and local anasthetic properties.
