I have the lemon and honey, was a bit cautious at first because of the lemon but I think the honey is really soothing.

Also I think the fact you produce loads of saliva and keep swallowing really helps.

I get through a pack or two of Ricola a week because they have a similar soothing and cooling action.

Liquid gaviscon actually hurts the bottom of my gullet so is a no no.

I've been looking into Menthol a bit more and apparently it has an anesthetic quality, it reduces the sensitivity of nerves to chemical or physical irritation. I think this is why I find lockets to be so good for heartburn, it must be the Menthol in them.
