Laryngitis is the result of an inflammation of the vocal cords (larynx). It is usually caused by excessive strain on the vocal cords or a viral or bacterial infection.

The most common symptom of laryngitis is a hoarse or weak voice. Sometimes people cannot talk at all. It is often accompanied by a sore throat and dry cough.

In most cases, it an acute condition that heals with time and has no serious consequences.  But you can get rid of the pain and inflammation and restore your voice more quickly with some easy and simple natural remedies.

The problem usually lasts for a few days or up to 2 weeks, at the most. If it persists longer then it is likely to be chronic laryngitis for which you need to consult a doctor.

home remedies for laryngitis

Here are the top 10 home remedies for laryngitis.


1. Apple Cider Vinegar

Apple cider vinegar has antimicrobial properties that help fight infections and thus can be used to treat laryngitis.

  • Mix two tablespoons of raw, unfiltered apple cider vinegar and a tablespoon of honey in half a cup of water. To increase the effectiveness of this remedy, you can add a little cayenne pepper too. Drink it twice a day.
  • Prepare a solution by mixing one tablespoon of raw, unfiltered apple cider vinegar in a glass of warm water. Gargle with the solution several times a day until you get relief.

2. Onion Syrup

Onion syrup acts as a natural expectorant and is an effective natural cure for larynx inflammation.

  1. Cut up three to four medium-sized onions. Simmer the pieces in four cups of water until the solution thickens to a syrup-like consistency.
  2. Mix five tablespoons of the onion syrup in a glass of warm water. Add one tablespoon of honey and a few drops of lemon juice.
  3. Sip the mixture slowly.

3. Ginger

Fresh ginger is good for your throat because it soothes the the inflamed mucous membranes of the larynx.

  • Boil thinly sliced fresh ginger root in a covered pan of water for 10 minutes. Strain the liquid and allow it to cool to room temperature. You can also add some lemon juice and sweeten it with honey. Drink this ginger tea several times a day.
  • You can also try sucking on a few candied gingers throughout the day or simply eat a few thin slices of fresh ginger root.

4. Warm Salt Water

Warm salt water helps kill bacteria and promotes healing of your inflamed vocal cords and sore throat.

Just add one-half teaspoon of salt to a cup of warm water and gargle with it. Do this several times a day.

5. Lemon Juice

The acidic nature of lemon juice can kill bacteria and viruses, and relieve various symptoms of laryngitis. Plus, it helps loosen mucus.

  1. Squeeze the juice of a lemon into a glass of warm water.
  2. Add one-half teaspoon of sea salt (if you do not have sea salt then just use table salt)
  3. Gargle with this solution several times a day.

6. Garlic

The antimicrobial property in garlic helps kill bacteria and viruses. It also acts as a natural expectorant.

  • Chew a raw garlic clove slowly and then swallow it.
  • Another option is to chop several garlic cloves, place them into a jar and cover it with equal parts of raw, unfiltered apple cider vinegar and distilled water. Shake the jar to mix the contents thoroughly and then let it sit for about 4 hours. Finally, add some raw honey to it before storing it in the refrigerator. Take 1 to 3 teaspoons of this garlic syrup every 6 to 8 hours.

    1. I’ve had laryngitis for days and googled a natural remedy. I’ve been drinking the apple cider vinegar in water with cayenne and honey as well the lemon in water. My vocal cords aren’t as hoarse and I’m actually getting my voice back. The tightness in my throat is much better. These remedies do work and they work quickly which is such a blessing as I can’t afford as a business owner to not be able to communicate with my staff & clientele. Thank you to those who put these articles together.

      1. I can attest to this also, I had laryngitis and was able to treat it by taking a teaspoon of apple cider twice a day and doing lemon and salt water gargles. After 3 days on this protocol my throat was back to normal.

  1. Go Big or Go Home! I combined ALL the ingredients on this page into a hot toddy of boiling water. Sipped all day long. Almost immediately, my voice was returning. The soreness is going away as well. Let me be first to say, it tastes nasty as shit! but pain is going away and the phelgm is breaking up. Im still alive (as of now) so I know its not deadly. Be brave…give it a shot. Thanks for the information. Besides if you have it as bad as I had it past two days, you dont care what it tastes like, and likely cant taste at all.

  2. I had a bacteria infection in my thought that was causing my sore throat and complete loss of voice. Nothing was improving my condition until i gargled a shot of whisky. It burned my throat, killed the bugs and immeciately i knew i was on my way to recovery. Within a few days i was well again.

  3. Summer vacation just started and kids already have it.. Oh the peace and quite at home. I love it. Should I even treat it or let them stay in quite mode for a little bit longer. Ugh I guess I have to start giving them honey soon. Can’t wait to hear my munchkins giggle again. Good remedies. Thanks

  4. I tried all of them and they all worked after 7 days even though it tasted grose it still helped so thank u feel alought better prob got it from singing alot

  5. I tried the apple cider vinegar with the honey and cyanenne pepper in warm water and gargled and I can already tell the difference.

  8. I heard this remedy on one of our popular radio stations. It is as follows; 2 – Tbsp. Apple Cider Vinegar, 2 – Tbsp. Lemon Juice, 2- Tbsp. Honey, Dash of Cinnamon & about 8 oz. Med Hot water. Mix well & drink 2-3 times a day or more !!! It soothes your throat after a few days. Be Consistent!❤️

  9. I usually get this at Christmas time which happened this year again. visited GP, who gave antibiotics. I know that these are not good for you, but at least I was OK for C’mas. It has now come back again. I have had a cough for over 3 years which comes and goes. I have inhaler which doesn’t seem to help. I will try your remedies today.Many thanks to you and my daughter for passing the messages on.

  10. Heres a receipe to add to your list:
    1 Aloe plant (meat of aloe, be sure to cut and discard white section)
    1 lime (juice and pulp
    1 red onion diced
    Honey about 1/4 cup
    Blend all the ingredients to the consistancy of honey. Take a teaspoon first thing in the morning, 1 around/after lunch, and 1 teaspoon before bed. Refrigerate in a glass jar and continue remedie until you feel better. You should feel better in a few days.

  11. I started drinking a lot of fluids, then follow with gargling using salt and warm water. There is a change. Thanks for the remedy.


  12. Huhuhu it’s hard to find honey in our place.. Also with apple cider vinegar 🙁
    I need my voice back asap. I will be having my teaching demo this week..

  13. I awoke Saturday morning with this! Had a nasal problem and had to strain to speak. Now Tuesday, (DECEMBER 18, 2016), have been using a combination of HOT GREEN-TEA and it is getting better! I still have to shake the nasal jazz! I found out it is going around here locally! I love this GREEN-TEA with ORGANIC HONEY!! And have it often!! Not sure of the duration, everybody’s different!! I am going to see what else I can use! But love the taste! GOOD LUCK !! Mr. Larry K. Parent, Naples,FL.
