Pastilles are similar to lozenges but usually softer. The words pastille and electuary are often used interchangeably. Normally an electuary has 2-3 parts liquid to 1 part herb and is more often taken with a spoon, whereas a pastille is formed into chew-able soft balls and only has a small amount of liquid. The common liquids used in these remedies are honey and glycerin. Maple syrup can also be used for babies under 1 year old. Sometimes pureed fruit, tea, or water are added. Pastilles made with water will spoil quickly and should be used right away.
