Bronchitis is usually characterized by irritated airways, constant coughing, difficulty breathing, and in most cases, an infection.

Slowly sipping and inhaling the steam from this aromatic drink will help you take a nice big breath.

  2. Remove water from heat, and add the chopped herbs. Let it steep for 3 minutes.(3 minutes)
  3. Strain and discard the herbs; reserve liquid in a mug.
  4. Add honey and/or ginger to taste.

Sip a cup of this infusion after waking up, or at any point of the day when congestion worsens. Take care not to exceed four cups a day.
