Some natural remedies for chest congestion include breathing in steam, mixing apple cider vinegar or eucalyptus oil with steam, or making a tea of ginger, mullein, licorice and pleurisy root. Add honey or cayenne pepper to tea to cure chest congestion with information from a practicing herbalist in this free video on alternative medicine.
Hi! I'm Trina Sims of Green Star Herbs and today I'm going to tell you about a few of the many home remedies available for chest congestion. Steam is always a good start. Plain steam is just fine or you can add to about eight ounces of water, a tablespoon of apple cider vinegar, some eucalyptus oil or leaf, lavender as well is a nice choice and thyme or oregano will work well. Either the herb itself or the essential oil. You can also put a few drops of any of those in essential oil form on a warm cloth squeezed out in warm water and just breathe the steam through that warm cloth. Some herbs that may make effective teas include ginger, mullein, elecampane, licorice and pleurisy root. You can add some honey to any of those and a little cayenne pepper as well if you tolerate it. I hope this information has been helpful to you, thank you.
