Top seller formulated by Medicine Bear, Cherokee Heritage. A natural antibiotic, this is a formula that was designed to fight off a serious cold or flu. Scout Out is one of our biggest sellers and very effective in fighting infection. With ear aches it can also help relieve pressure off the ears during sickness.
Scout Out is another effective formula passed on to Lyle Bennett by the late 7th Generation Cherokee herbalist D. Walt Burchett (Medicine Bear). In his Cherokee Heritage line, he called it "Antibiotic Tonic" We like to think of it as an antibiotic alternative. This powerful formula contains many herbs that strongly support immune function. It is a favorite among many (our family included) for chronic infections or deeper stages of colds and flu.
"This is our all-time favorite remedy. It always works, without fail, to shorten the intensity and duration of cold/flu/cough symptoms. And my kids like the taste, too. I recommend it to others frequently."

Product Note from TriLight Health Founder and
Herbalist Lyle Bennett:
I personally take 2 tablespoons the first 3 times to really hit it hard and then back off to regular amounts. I also take Lympha Rub in between doses of Scout Out during the day.
At night I switch off to using Lungs Plus so that I can breathe and sleep better. Now if I have the really aches & painful to the bone flu I take a double dose of Flew Away half an hour before bedtime and that makes all the difference in the world when you wake up! Anytime I wake up during the night with the urge to cough I grab the Lungs Plus and then back to sleep.
Those struggling with sinus infections or cold and flu find that Sinus Minus works great at drying up the sinuses and helps the body recoup faster. (Along with and gel caps during the day and at night) I also have found that using Lympha Rub as "nose drops" and putting one drop in each nostril has encouraged mucus discharge and much faster healing of the sinuses.

ok people, this is awesome: extra nasty bad cough in a two year old for over five days; my product arrives; BOOM! In one day, two doses in two separate bottles and NOT ONE COUGH. attitude- no lethargy. sounds-no phlegm. yep, it is amazing. I did purchase the 8oz bottle so that the rest of my family can also take it; which resulted in no coughs, and no phlegm sounds, and no lethargy. One super happy, very pregnant, mama over here!
My husband has been using the Scout out for a few weeks now. He usually gets sick this time of year, but he actually is feeling pretty good! The taste isn't his favorite, but he takes it loyally everyday and knows that it is helping!
I watch a little girl who had a terrible sinus infection, so I made sure to give this to my girls at the first sign they had also caught it. Theirs was MUCH less severe and didn't last nearly as long, I was so thankful to have this on hand!
This is my " go to" remedy whenever I feel like I'm coming down with something, or sometimes, even if I think I might have been exposed to something. It has worked wonders at stopping colds, sinus problems and intestinal bugs. My nutritionist and homeopath read the ingredient list and was amazed at such a great formula of herbs. She suggested I use it whenever I feel like I need to! I'll never be without it in my store of herbal medicines!
I purchased this item to aide in a terrible, lingering lung infection that I just could not rid myself of. This was a last ditch effort before submitting to use antibiotics. The combination of this remedy as well as using colloidal silver and a two month long infection was gone in a matter of days!
This item was the first I ordered from Trilight, and we will now be lifelong customers! It's amazing, I've taken it at the first signs of a sore throat and it's gone before it even sets in. I had a chronic earache that wouldn't clear up and after 2 days this started me back on my way to feeling like a normal person again!
Great product for colds and ear aches. Keeps me from having to take the children to the doctor.
I used this when my daughter felt a tickle in her throat and she felt better the next day! great product!
I keep Scout Out on hand at all times, but just recently ran out and was late in reordering. Now, the kids and I are all sick - definitely not a coincidence! It's definitely made a difference in the number of sicknesses we've dealt with as well as their duration and intensity.
I love that this is a safe way to fight against infection. I always have this on hand now that flu season is here.
I first tried Tri-Light products after I had my 1st son 14 yrs. ago. I heard about it Shonda Parker's book, Naturally Healthy Family. I just fell in love with these products. I only just recently tried Scout Out and it works VERY well. My kids do not like the taste as well as Vira-mune or Echinacea & Thyme but the little ones don't complain when I slip it into some juice without them knowing. It really does work and all I can say is if you are new to these products, just get the little 2oz. bottle to try- you won't be sorry. My kids are usually feeling better within 24-48hrs. depending on the illness and for the really nasty bugs, it might hang on for a week but usually, the symptoms are minimal. I have even sent it in my son's lunch box (in some juice) to keep him on the mend along with the Lympha Rub.
Really does work! I had my doubts, but it really does stop that cold from getting worse and sets you on the path to recovery. Great product!
This product is great for kids or adults. We used this as soon as it arrived, as we were in the process of getting very bad colds. You feel relief right after taking it!
We love this stuff. I have used it at the first sign of not feeling well and it seems like it does not give the illness a chance to get going. I don't want to be without it now that school has started back.
We try not to run out of this stuff! Get the big bottle, you'll use it when those winter sniffles come around.
I am SO pleased with Scout Out! I use it in combination with Lympha Rub whenever I think that a family member could be bordering on infection. When I worried on a Friday evening that my little boy could have an ear infection, I thought I would try Scout Out to get him through the weekend until we could go the doctor on Monday morning. By Sunday, he had no fever and no other symptoms. I also recently knocked out a fever / sore throat combination in about 24 hours with Scout Out taken every 3-4 hours. I am very pleased and will keep plenty of this on hand for the winter.
I used this for a week the last time colds were going around and mine hung on and became a sinus infection I think. It cleared up and I was so thankful to have this as a choice instead of going in for antibiotics.
I used this on myself and my kids as a preventative, taking a dose or two a day when we felt like we were getting sick over the winter. None of us got sick when we did this, so I'd say it worked pretty well!
I use this with sinus minus to teat colds and ear infections. It seems to help the children get over there colds and infections better and not having to use antibiotics.
Scout out works amazingly! I always have it on hand!
About once a year, my husband gets a flu virus that puts him in bed for 2-3 days and often turns into bronchitis. He recently started to feel the telltale signs in his chest and began to get achy. The only TriLight product I had on hand was the Scout Out, so I gave him the recommended dose for his weight 3 times a day. I ended up giving him the whole 2 oz. bottle over the week he had symptoms. He came home from work early one day soon after I ran out of the Scout Out and slept for an hour or two. Other than that, he did not miss work or have to go to bed sick and he never developed bronchitis or any other infection. Awesome stuff!
Another great product! I have to restrain myself from ordering everything you have!
We are fighting the flu/colds here and so far, with small daily dosing, only one is sick.
I could feel myself starting to get sick and after two doses, I was fine and full of energy.
My youngest who was the first time come down with it, has remained happy even with the illness and able to sleep!
I have been giving my oldest small doses as a preventative and his eczema is clearing up! (With just two days of use!)
I will be ordering this product again.
The first thing we go to when we feel & sniffle. This is what we call the "big guns".
Love this stuff! Have been giving to my 7 month old and 3 yr old and have warded off major colds! Just bought some more!
Scout Out is a superior product that kept my daughter from her annual fall sinus infection and ear pain. Almost immediately upon dosing with the Scout Out her symptoms of coughing, runny nose, and ear pain vanished. And getting her to take the liquid is a breeze. She loves the taste.
We are currently using this right now with my son' scold. He will tell me he's sick and actually asks for this medicine. It really does seem to be helping with cold symptoms.
This product is wonderful! I've had a wisdom tooth/earache/lymph infection for the past two months. I just remembered I had Scout Out a couple days ago, pulled it out of the box and have been taking it every few hours. I'm feeling much better already! This is working better than the antibiotics! I need some more to keep on hand!
This is one of our all time favorites to use. As soon as my kids start to come down with something we give them scout out..typically 3 days later they are better.
We love Scout Out! At the first sign of a cold, I give my son a dose every two to three hours. It shortens the duration and severity of a cold. I also give it BEFORE group activities in the winter to prevent colds. This is our most used herbal formula.
I used this for the first time in combination with Echinacea and Thyme with Elderberries with my 7 year old's cold & cough. She was all better in 3 days, shortening the typical length of her illness. I just reordered in the 8 ounce bottle to keep on hand. With 7 children ages 1-12, I love having one product that works for everyone!
I wish we would have had this on hand last winter! My son got a cold this summer and I was so thankful that we were able to use Scout Out and Lungs Plus to speed up his recovery time - he was very sad to be missing VBS, but at least it was only two days instead of the whole week!
I have given this at the first sign of a cold and it usually gets rid of it. Great tasting too!
This is amazing. I would not be without it. What a wonderful alternative to prescription antibiotics! I reach for this whenever I feel like I am fighting something and it really works terrific! A few doses and I feel better. I find the taste challenging but I don't care because it works so well. Getting my children to take it....well, that's another story
Scout Out is my secret weapon. I have three children and the youngest is two and a half. She has never been on a prescription antibiotic, although she's had her share of ear/sinus/lung infections. I make sure I always have the largest bottle of scout out in my medicine cabinet.
Love Scout Out! We take it at the first sign of sickness, and feel better in no time!
I've had chronic sinus infections for years, which never seemed to get cleared up with antibiotics. I've been taking this product for over a year now whenever I feel a sinus infection coming on, and it works great! My sinus infections clear up, at least for a couple of months. They do seem to return as I also have chronic allergies, and with an allergy flair-up, the sinus infections seem to return. So I take the Scout Out again!
VERY effective! This quickly got rid of a bad cold after I'd tried a number of things that didn't work. Thank you!
I just began using this product - I bought it after my son's latest ear infection, and was ready the next time around. It didn't take long (he's prone to them,) but at the first sign of sniffles and poor sleep, I began giving Scout Out. I really believe it helped lessen the duration and intensity of his infection. He immediately loved the taste (but unfortunately then decided he hated it - hey, he's 3!) But I will definitely always keep this on hand both for ear infections and cold/flu season. Highly recommended.
We have 4 kids 4 and under and I like having this on hand, knowing I have somthing I can give them that will help them get better naturally. They even say it tastes like raisins.
I have three of my four kids on this and after 3 days I can see such a difference. Love this product
our family of 8 were given the gift of an antibiotic resistant strain of strep (which became scarlatina quickly). after 3 attempts at antibiotic treatments i finally wised up and started us on Scout Out and Lympha rub. after 3 days we were almost cleared up!
This stuff is incredible! A couple weeks ago my husband and two toddlers all started to come down with a bad cough/cold and so we started regularly dosing them with Scout Out. The colds never got to the severe stage and within two days they were completely gone...especially amazing for my husband as his colds are usually a week-long misery. And both my toddlers loved taking it -- they always opened wide and my three-year-old would eagerly ask if they could have some. This is definitely a product we're going to keep on hand.
We alternated this and sinus minus for what seemed like sinus infection in 6yr old; didn't have to go to the dr. after all!
Scout out is amazing! I caught a severe cold and sore throat from my 2-year-old daughter, and almost from the moment I started taking Scout Out, symptoms began to diminish. I took if for 4 days and am back to normal minus a little bit of runny nose. This stuff is truly a natural healer and antibiotic!
I usually get at least one sinus infection a year, and this year was no exception. However, this time I took scout out and was able to get rid of the infection without going to the doctor for an antibiotic. Thanks, Trilight!
We have used Scout out for many reasons: if we have something coming on we take it and if we have something that won't go away we take it. I use it on ages 1-10 it works well.
Within a week of receiving our first bottle of this, my husband came down with fatigue, headache, and fever, so I had him take some Scout Out to boost his immune system. This allowed his body to fight the infection and his fever started to come down naturally within a couple of hours; I had him continue taking it through the next day along with extra vitamin C and garlic capsules, and today he is back to feeling great.
We have 8 children from 14 to 1 and they all had a cough for over a month. We got this and the frist day the coughing slowed way down. We got the 8 oz bottel and still have some. The cough is gone. Great stuff.
We first used Scout Out last winter and found it to be highly effective in knocking out coughs, sniffles, and whenever the kids were generally draggy. I will be honest and say that the taste is pretty horrible, but the benfits more than outweigh that! All 3 of my children take it without complaining now :)
When we are dealing with a virus that we cannot seem to "shake" I reach for Scout out. Occasionally, I will alternate viramune and scout out before we reach the stage of "not shaking it". It works well and does not have the side effects of prescription antibiotics.
I started buying this for UTI, after needing antiobiotics five times in one year...it cleared up my problems. Years ago, my infant had a sinus infection. I brought him home from the Doctor with the bottle of antibiotics in my hand and I just couldn't give that stuff to him. I decided to try scout out first. The next day his nose was clear for the first time in a month. Since then, we use it whenever we have any sickness that is hard to beat.
Shortly after getting our order we got to put it to the test! Our seven children got a cold and each one recovered in just a few days. I was especially thankful for my 2 year old who was born prematurely and seem to have a harder time fighting bugs. She was fine after a couple of days. I am so thankful God gave us these wonderful herbs to help our bodies heal. We love the taste of your tinctures.
This product always works consistently to help my kids get over their colds and illnesses more quickly
Definitely helped to ward off many illnesses for us last winter. Even the littlest ones drink it fine if mixed in a little juice.
I DO NOT leave home for a trip with my four kids without Scout Out! Goldenseal is an incredible natural antibiotic....Scout Out keeps my kids out of the doctors office and away from antibiotics! Thank you Trilight!
We use in combination with Scout Out. These two formulas have completely rid my daughter of ear infections. Christine had four ear infections in a row. Since use of Liquid Light products she has not had once since. Also, a big THANKS to you from my mother! She's had chronic sinus and ear problems for over 10 years (no kidding!) She's been to three ear, nose and throat specialists, tried antibiotics and Seldane, but after taking Scout Out for a week, she's a new person. Scout Out is a real miracle! We've used it for colds, flu, ear infections, sinus problems, fevers, viruses and allergy related stuffy head. In all honesty, since using TriLight products (almost two years) my kids have not been to the doctor for sick visits. They are sick less often and when they are sick, they recover quickly. Thanks a million!
My five year old used to have terrible sinus issues that lasted for weeks and developed into congestion with yellow/green mucous. Now I give him Scout Out at the first sign of a stuffy/funny nose and his colds only last a few days to a week, almost always maintaining just clear mucous.
I have been using this product longer than any other TriLight Health product. If I could only have one herbal remedy for my children, I would choose Scout Out! The children gladly take this as they recognize if they do they will be feeling better quickly.
This is a must for parents to have on hand during cold season!
If I had to take one supplement and one only on a trip to a foreign country or deserted island or anywhere else for that matter, this is the one I would choose. I am a registered nurse, and learned all about medical intervention in the course of my practice, but scout out is better than medical intervention! It works to enable your own body to "step up" and fight. I give this to any of my family members any time they have symptoms of illness. It really is the best product I have ever known.
I love this product. It's worked wonders with my daughter who recently got sick. I'm glad the 8 oz now comes in a flip cap. Mine didn't and kept dripping down the side.
I had an ear infection and was amazed how quickly it was gone when I took the Scout Out, definitely need to keep this on hand at the house.
Being a type 1 diabetic, celiac, and having some other autoimmune issues, I am cautious with what I put in my mouth and body! When I recently felt sore throat, plugged ears, and raging sinuses coming on, I took some Scout Out (for 4 days) and was delightfully pleased how rapidly I got better! (And I was a skeptic.)
I highly recommend this to others who may be skeptical, or have various health issues that make them medicine shy.
One note: I got the 8 oz size that came with a regular cap. Wish I would have ordered the flip cap, as pouring the Scout Out onto a spoon always leaves a drip or two that is wasted. This stuff is liquid gold in my book! Do yourself a favor and get a flip cap.
I ordered this for my boys who were dealing with chest congestion and asthmatic coughs. This combined with Lungs Plus allowed us to stop using our nebulizer much earlier than we usually do. I was really surprised it worked so quickly - I accidentally gave them more than the recommended dose but after 2 days they were cleared up. They didn't care for the taste too much but agreed to take it with a little apple juice. I'm almost out - need to get a new bottle!
Seems to have helped me kick a cold that felt like it was going to linger and get worse. Glad I had ordered it. I am also very impressed by the extremely quick shipping(I ordered on Saturday and had it on Tuesday!) and kind customer service!
This is our all-time favorite remedy. It always works, without fail, to shorten the intensity and duration of cold/flu/cough symptoms. And my kids like the taste, too. I recommend it to others frequently.
With 4 kids and 2 adults going into the cold and flu season we obviously need lots of immune support.....This is what we reach for every time...as preventative AND treatment!!
I actually ordered this by mistake - I'm glad I did! This cured a 4 month long flu like sickness in a friend that the doctors could not cure!
When Viramune for 2 days doesn't cut cold symptoms, I reach for Scout Out for support of secondary infections, or something a little stronger than Viramune. Thanks for a wonderful product.
This is my very favorite product that Trilight makes. I highly recommend.
My children all came down with pretty bad colds and so I gave them Scout Out. They got better so much quicker and some of them hardly got sick at all because they started taking it at the first signs of a cold. The taste is appealing so even little children do not resist taking it.
Scout Out has saved us so many trips to the dr. Our little one is prone to ear infections once he gets a cold, Scout Out with the Hear No Evil works wonders!
This is our "big gun". We pull this out when we see an illness getting worse. We pull this out and it stops it in it's tracks!
Scout Out is always something to have in your frig just in case you need the "tough stuff". This has helped up wrap up many bugs or problems that just wouldn't go away. Saved more trips to the doctor's than I can guess. Honestly, even talked one of my little ones to the doctor and found out we had an infection, skipped the anti-biotics (I can't recommend that to anyone though), and handed out consistant doses of Scout Out. Often my child has felt much better often within 24hrs. Thank you for having this available to us.
You know Scout Out is a good product when your kids are asking you for it! They absolutely love the taste. I have been using Scout Out for my children for 13 years now. My oldest son would get chronic ear infections as a baby, and had taken many antibiotics. A friend told me about Scout Out and Trilight Herbs and I was amazed at how quickly my son's ear infections cleared up - and with no side effects! Scout Out is something we always keep on hand! A must for your "medicine cabinet"!
This is what I pull out any time my children start coughing. It is amazing how quickly it gets the cough under control. We've had coughs last months, but with scout out, it usually is completely gone within a week or two.
At the first sign of a cold, I start giving this to my kiddos. Usually after only a couple doses the cold is either gone or very mild! We Love Trilight Products!
