Experience the power of Thieves and menthol in a cough drop! The triple-action formula of Thieves Cough Drops offers comfort by relieving coughs, soothing sore throats, and cooling nasal passages. Minty, spicy, and sweet, these cough drops are made with naturally derived ingredients, including Young Living’s pure, therapeutic-grade essential oils and menthol from peppermint.

These tasty cough drops are easy to take anywhere you may need relief. Keep some in your purse, laptop bag, or next to your bed at night so they’re always on hand.

What It’s For

One of the few Young Living products that is labeled as an over the counter medicine, these cough drops have drug facts instead of supplement facts on the back. This means we can actually make claims about what they can do for you.

Perfect during cold season, the Thieves Cough Drops relieve cough and sooth sore throat as well as any irritation that comes with it the two. Additionally, the menthol in each drop rises up through the sinus passages to give you a little extra soothing.

DISCLAIMER: this product is not meant to cure sickness, just to sooth and alleviate irritation and soreness. If cough persists more than 1 week or reoccurs often or is accompanied by fever, rash, headache, etc. consult your physician instead of continuing use of Thieves Cough Drops. These can be symptoms of something more serious, like strep, which requires antibiotics instead of pain numbing cough drops.

Ingredient Highlights

Thieves Cough Drops, as you would expect, pack all of the power of Thieves essential oil blend. They also contain 8mg of naturally occurring menthol per drop. Because of this, these Cough Drops are labeled as oral analgesics, not just as cough suppressants. This means they’re labeled to dull pain within the mouth.

These Drops are sugar free and contain no dyes, artificial flavors, or preservatives. They are sweetened by naturally occurring stevia, making each drop only 5 calories. This makes them much cleaner and more natural than other over the counter cough drops.

Who Should Take Thieves Cough Drops

Thieves Cough Drops are perfect for anyone experiencing a sore throat or cough, as well as any soreness or irritation that comes from the two.

However, be cautious if you have ongoing lung diseases or are an active smoker. This product is not intended to treat a cough resulting from those. It is intended to temporarily relieve cough caused by the common cold or to help with minor irritation of the throat.

Don’t Have Thieves Cough Drops? 

Thieves Lozenges are another way to take Thieves essential oil orally. Though not labeled to treat cough and sore throat, the Thieves, lemon, and peppermint oils work their magic to temporarily sooth those symptoms.
