My Grammie used to so this: Old-Fashioned Mustar Plaster "A mustard plaster will bring nearly immediate relief and warmth to a respiratory system plagued by long lingering coughs, congestion, bronchitis or cold damp pneumonia. It works mainly by increasing circulation and introducing deep heat to congested lungs, thus stimulating the loosening and expectoration of mucus."
Cough-Control Tea 1. Pour hot water over 2 teaspoons organic lemon rinds, 1 teaspoon sage, and 1/2 teaspoon thyme. (Dried or fresh herbs can be used.) 2. Cover and steep for 15 minutes. 3. Strain tea, then add juice of 1/2 lemon and 1 tablespoon honey. 4. Drink two to three cups daily for cough relief.
