Hi All. I am recovering from a chesty cough. Literally straight onto my chest and sudden onset and no other real notable symptoms. For this I got myself some A Vogel Bronchosan which has the main active ingredient of pine bark. This was very helpful for soothing the airways. I also rubbed fresh thyme on my chest. Thyme is an excellent herb for the respiratory tract. Essential oil wise I applied 2 to 3 drops of eucalyptus again to the chest and back of the lungs about twice daily. Alongside plenty of rest, staying warm, well hydrated with room temperature water and hibiscus tea, one week on it's nearly fully cleared. Keep yourself well this winter!
