Although chronic persistent coughs should be looked at by your doctor, coughs caused by the cold virus can be greatly helped with home remedies.
Try this soothing rub: Dilute 2 drops of eucalyptus essential oil in 1 ounce of Castor oil or almond oil. Rub this mixture on your chest and then top with a plastic wrap followed by a thin towel. Finally apply a heating pad to help the oil penetrate your tissues.
For a calming steam inhalation, add a few drops of eucalyptus essential oil to your vaporizer.
For foods that help relieve symptoms of bronchitis, try onions and garlic. They’re an effective natural cough expectorant and help strengthen the immune system. French onion soup anyone?
