Stop It Cold ® Throat Spray is a unique and effective throat spray formula that significantly reduces sore throat symptoms and can even reduce the duration and intensity of colds, flu and upper respiratory infections.
That tickle in the throat. That moment when you swallow, wince, and think, “Oh no… am I getting a cold?” Colds are a part of life, sure, but there’s just never a convenient time to have one. Tackling your sore throat symptoms at the very beginning of a cold is a smart move. Here’s what you need to know about the St. Francis Herb Farm’s Stop It Cold Throat Spray.
Eases the pain
A spray works on contact and is easy to use, says Dr. Terry Vanderheyden, a naturopathic doctor in Barry’s Bay, Ontario, and medical advisor at St. Francis Herb Farm. “Just spray it into the back of your throat several times, and the pain is immediately reduced.” In some cases, he says, the potent antimicrobial properties of the spray are enough to stop a cold from progressing any further.
Treats the infection
The combination of soothing and infection-fighting natural ingredients reduces the intensity and the duration of your cold, flu or upper respiratory tract infection. (Bonus: Dr. Terry adds that the throat spray can also be used to heal minor mouth infections like canker sores too.)
Packed with natural ingredients
The Stop It Cold Throat Spray is carefully made with just the right balance of certified organic or wildcrafted herbs and other natural ingredients that have been used for generations to heal infection and soothe pain.

ECHINACEA ANGUSTIFOLIA: Probably the most popular and most widely known of herbal remedies, echinacea is a drought-tolerant perennial plant that can grow up to four feet in height. With immunological properties, it is native to the United States and a member of the daisy family. Its name comes from the Greek that means "hedgehog"--a reference to its spiky central disk. The medicinal compounds in the purpurea species known as alkamides are more bioavailable when in the presence of those from the angustifolia species. This is the rationale behind our EchinAce formula.
A classic perennial shrub native to Eurasia, licorice has been used as a medicine from the beginning of recorded history. Licorice root is the most widely used herb of Traditional Chinese Medicine. Use it as an adaptogen to increase resistance to stress and to promote a healthier immune system response.
Now naturalized in North America, marshmallow is a perennial original to Europe and grows, as its name indicates, in damp, marshy places. With roots that are rich in soothing mucilage, it has been used for thousands of years as a medicinal herb.
Also called bee glue, propolis is a resinous substance produced by bees to seal their hives. It has been valued from ancient times for its antiseptic and wound-healing qualities.
