Cough and cold is very common when the weather changes and it isn’t a severe situation. However, if you are suffering from severe cough with mucus for more than a week, you need medical help. For the time being or before you go to a doctor, try the chest mask recipe given below:
Ginger- Ginger has anti-inflammatory properties. It warns the skin and penetrates thereby giving relief. Ginger works great topically as a pain reliever, decongestant and also helps to reduce inflammation in the chest.
Raw honey- Raw honey too keeps the chest warm and catalyses positive effects of ginger.
Olive oil- Olive oil helps contain beneficial ginger compounds and also helps in penetration.
