Yerba Santa, Mullein, Fenugreek and Honey are each known to be specifically helpful for the respiratory tract.
Note that I only use and recommend organic herbs. Also note that I am not a doctor so it is important for you to research each herb recommended to see possible contraindications for your situation. In general, take special caution and do extra research for anything before taking while pregnant or breastfeeding.
While herbal teas are sold extensively, easily accessed, and they are often safe, especially for occasional use, plants can be very potent, especially when used for a duration of time, and education is recommended to ensure safety for you and whomever you may be serving.
If you are using this blend for a sore throat, do know that sometimes sore throats can be a sign of an ailment more serious than just a passing cold so do your due diligence to follow up as necessary with your qualified health practitioner.
Here’s to your happy respiratory tract!
