This is an extremely soothing and effective combination used for a dry, painful throat, spasmodic and unproductive cough, and respiratory congestion. These herbs have traditionally been used to help calm and quiet irritating, spasmodic coughs, while helping to promote expectoration.
When taking this tincture, the typical experience is that there may be one or two more good productive coughs followed by quiet relief. The little coughing that remains is productive, helping to clear lung congestion and keeping the fluids moving out. This is a very important factor, as many cough suppressants on the market stop coughs completely, which means that the fluids then collect in the lungs and can stagnate, sometimes becoming infected, which can lead to pnemonia. Its important to keep these fluids moving out of the lungs, and the Quiet Cough Tincture provides the perfect balance between expectoration and eliminating the unproductive and spasmodic cough. Needless to say, this is one of Herb Lore's most popular products! Kids love the non-alcohol version too! (Please see our Children's Dosage Guide to help you determine how much to give to children.)
