Lozenges are sometimes preferred when taking herbs to treat mouth, throat or upper respiratory tract conditions. Lozenges are based on combining a powdered herb with a sugar and a mucilage (thick viscous jelly) to produce the correct texture.

Common mucilage herbs include: Marshmallow, Slippery Elm, and Comfrey Root.
