Natural home remedies can help with colds by acting as expectorants. Instead of resorting to chemical medicines, herbal teas such as thyme, licorice, cowslip, fennel and anise can also be used. These herbs help the body loosen mucus, promote expectoration and soothe strained bronchial tubes. A sage tea with honey can soothe irritated mucous membranes in the throat. Ginger also has an expectorant effect and also has an anti-inflammatory effect, making it ideal for the throat.

A glass of warm water with apple cider vinegar and honey can also help with expectoration. For onion juice, chop the onion, mix it with honey or sugar and leave it in the refrigerator overnight. Moist, warm compresses with onions, cottage cheese or potatoes around the throat and chest can liquefy mucus and provide relief. Drinking enough and getting fresh air are also important. A damp cloth on the heater or a humidifier can also help loosen mucus.
