I often get sore throat due to post nasal drip associated with allergies and dry mouth. Recently I added some glycerin to my saline mist. I can't believe how much better it leaves my dry, congested nasal passages. I use food grade, vegetable grade glycerin I ordered online. I had to get a 12 oz. bottle but it is inexpensive. I never knew how many uses there are for it.
