Does eucalyptus oil clear a cracked voice?

Yes, it has been recorded as a way to clear a cracked voice but ensure that you use the recommended amount on your bottle for not all of these oils are made from the same company or brand meaning the dosage will change up for each brand so read carefully and take as instructed.

No, it is recommended that you not take anything that contains menthol or eucalyptus in it as an ingredient for it can cause your voice to sound deeper. I doubt that a singer would want to deepen their voice from where it is at this time of your singing expedition so stay away from these types of ingredients.

How can a chorister take honey to clear her voice within one hour?

A chorister can mix honey with a hot cup of tea, especially green tea which is rich in antioxidants. The combination of tea and honey will help in soothing the throat, as well as clear away some phlegm or mucus, if there is any. However, make sure that when you select tea, you choose one that does not contain caffeine, as caffeine can actually make your vocal folds drier, thereby making it more irritated. Also, while the intake of honey together with beverages will provide some level of relief within an hour, this should not replace the importance of regular and continuous hydration. It is best to take in water more consistently, rather than just relying on the intake of throat syrups, honey, or other forms of lubrication right before or after you need to use your vocal cords.

You can simply mix it with the hot cup of tea. By combining the tea and the Honey, you can actually make an effective drink in which can help you sooth your throat before singing. And also, you will need to also drink up lots of water to prevent the dryness of your throat.

The ingredients in honey will help to relax the throat and promote better singing. This can help if the throat is swollen or tired from the constant singing. Taking honey will help to relieve swelling thus by relaxing the throat muscles.

What does a chorister take to clear the voice after eating fried food?

Fried food is usually oily and it causes the vocal cords to feel rather sticky or have a sensation similar to having phlegm or mucus in it. It is best not to drink cold beverages right after eating, because low temperature causes the oil to solidify, therefore making it more difficult for the oil to leave your larynx. Hot beverages will aid in washing away these oils from your throat. The best comparison here is when you refrigerate a dish with beef to preserve it. Just a few minutes in the fridge and you will automatically see fat solidifying on top of the dish. That's how fat usually reacts with anything cold. Therefore, if you know for sure that you have eaten oily food, make sure you drink hot beverages immediately right after.

A chorister can take some of the following drinks in order to help clear up their throat:

1. Orange Juice

2. Apple Juice

3. Honey Tea

4. Spoonful of Honey

5. Lemon Juice

6. Lemon Tea

How to fully clear the passageway leading to my nose and mouth?

I've tried multiple times to clearly remove anything in the way of my throat and nose to give it my best in singing but even though my nose and throat is clear of mucus, and I have drank water a lot, there seems to be some sort of extra mucus up there in my nose but when I blow my nose again, nothing comes out. it's there I know because when I make squeaky noises and block my nose passageway I can feel it there. How do I get rid of the extra layer of mucus up my nose? It is ruining my vocals! HELP!

The best thing I can recommend would be to buy an over the counter sterile saline nasal spray. It will just help clear it all up. You should not need any of the kinds with medicine in them, the normal one will work fine.
