Questions and Answers

Does honey and raw egg clear voice?


Honey is known to be one of singers' best voice relievers. Taking a teaspoonful of honey is known to make the voice sound smoother. You may also want to whip an egg white and stir it with one teaspoon of honey. Adding a little lemon and a couple teaspoons of over-the-counter glycerin can also clear and makes the voice smooth. Two tablespoons of the mixture taken daily is just perfect.

My voice is gone and I just ate a raw egg?


There are people, especially the elderly, who would advise to take raw egg when you have some problem with your voice. While it had worked for some people, there are actually some risks when you do that. Raw egg may contain salmonella which can be harmful to one's health. If you are already having trouble with your voice, you would not want to put into your body more causes of infection.

Also, when you contract salmonella, you may experience severe vomiting and fever. When this happens, it will not help in relieving your voice. Vomiting can in fact cause more irritation on the vocal cords.

Proper vocal warm ups can avoid your voice from going out after a performance. You will want to warm up for at least 20 minutes on Sunday morning. You should also be doing regular vocal exercises throughout the week. Drink lukewarm water on Sunday morning and avoid drinks with caffeine. If you must have coffee in the morning to wake up, limit it to one cup.

Honey is excellent for your voice. It is not recommended to consume raw egg though so you should just stick to honey in lukewarm water. Glycerin is comprised of animal fats and vegetable oils.

How can I clear my voice to sing a high pitch, I feel there is mucus in my throat because anytime I am singing I have to take time to clear my voice. How can I maintain my key when I sing?

How do I maintain my key when I sing, and how do I clear my voice of mucus.

Drink half your body weight in ounces of water daily. This will help thin out the mucous on your vocal chords. The fact is, you need some mucous on your vocal chords to sing without irritation. Avoid dairy products a few days before a performance. Drink ginger tea on a regular basis. Do you have allergies? Some singers use Robitussin before they sing. You will want to avoid pushing through those high notes when you are singing. Opt for your lower vocal range and see if that makes a difference.
