Rattling Coughs and Runny Noses

I love simple effective remedies. For any mucousy respiratory problem such as a runny nose or rattling cough, try this:

Chop ½ of an onion, place in a dish in your room and keep the door partly closed. The vapours from the onion will fill the room along with your sinuses and respiratory tract helping them open while reducing mucous production. This remedy is perfect for infants and younger kids who are congested and may have trouble sleeping.
