Your voice is a very precious thing to lose. Without it, you lose your ability to communicate and express yourself, a condition that is especially disruptive to singers, actors and anyone who has to speak professionally. A number of natural remedies for loss of voice exist that can help soothe your throat without the use of chemicals or toxins.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Drink six to eight glasses of water every day to keep your throat moist and your body hydrated.

  2. 2

    Suck on vitamin C or honey flavoured cough drops. This will help keep your throat moist, helping you recover more quickly. Avoid minty or menthol cough drops as they can dry out your throat.

  3. 3

    Drink ginger, lemon, or honey tea, all of which have soothing properties. Avoid drinking ice cold liquids.

  4. 4

    Use a steam treatment. To do this, fill a bowl with hot water and cover your head with a towel, creating a tent. Lean over the bowl and breathe in the steam.

  5. 5

    Sleep with a humidifier in the room.
