Bronchitis is an inflammation, swelling or infection of the bronchial tubes between the nose and the lungs. It is usually caused by a virus, bacteria, or particles that irritate the bronchial tubes.

Symptoms associated with bronchitis include a cough with mucus, difficulty breathing, chest pain, nasal congestion, fatigue, muscle aches and fever. Bronchitis can be acute or chronic.



People suffering from bronchitis often try over-the-counter medications to manage the symptoms. There are also many simple, natural home remedies that can provide relief.

Here are the top 10 home remedies for bronchitis.


(Out of the 10, we have covered 3 highly effective home remedies in this video as well.)

1. Ginger

Ginger, often used for treating the common cold, can also help with bronchitis. The anti-inflammatory and immune-boosting properties present in ginger help relieve irritated, inflamed or swollen bronchial tubes.

NOTE: This remedy is not suitable for people who have gallbladder stones, hyperacidity, stomach ulcers or obstructive jaundice.

4. Eucalyptus Oil

Steam therapy is very effective when suffering from bronchitis. Adding eucalyptus oil will soften the mucus in the obstructed airways and its antibacterial properties will help in the healing process.

  • Simply add a few drops of eucalyptus oil to boiling water and cover your head with a towel so that you can inhale the steam. If eucalyptus oil is not available, you can use pine oil or tea tree oil.
  • Eucalyptus oil can also be applied externally on the chest. This will help you expel the mucus and improve the functioning of the respiratory system.

5. Salt Water

Gargling with salt water several times a day is a great way to treat various symptoms of bronchitis. Simply add one teaspoon of salt to a glass of warm water and gargle with it.

Be sure to use the exact amount of salt, as too much salt can cause a burning sensation in the throat and too little will not be as effective. You can gargle with salt water as often as you need.

There are two benefits of this remedy. First, it will soothe the inflammation in the throat, and secondly, it will cut through some of the mucus causing irritation to the throat.

6. Honey

Honey is a natural way to deal with the cough that occurs with bronchitis. The antiviral and antibacterial properties present in honey will be soothing for the throat. At the same time, honey will boost your immune system.

  • Adding one teaspoon of honey to your regular cup of tea will help a lot when suffering from bronchitis.
  • You can also add honey to warm lemon water to treat congestion and throat inflammation that often accompanies bronchitis.

  1. I do believe all this natural remedies that we can get from ginger, garlic turmeric, honey…and I’m very thankful for this helpful info.

  2. Soaking your feet in water w/essential oils, or Epsom salt, helps get it into your system and does relieve during symptoms and relaxes you. Eucalyptus salts helps in foot soak AND it’s steam helps relieve bronchial congestion, if you can tolerate water warm enough! The face steam is another upper alternative, but don’t scald yourself, use wisdom having hot pan far enough away – you can feel it’s intensity the closer you’re face is to the steam in the pan. Cover head with a towel draped over that pan to enclose the steam. You can also microwave a tea towel soaked in water, then wrung out for (microwave just 1-2 minutes with 1000 watt, it may vary-start at one and checking there after, it’s pretty warm at (2) and place it in another thin towel if too hot, (you can also fold it and place in gallon size plastic zip bag after heating up, to not be wet on you or your hair if longer) but best when you wrap it around the back of your neck around your shoulder area, or lay it across your chest in a comfortable upright/angled position on recliner chair or similiar angle and it relaxes, loosens muscles, comforts during this time. (^_^) I deal with asthma, bronchial throat and chest phlemn, sinus/nasal stuffiness with food, stress, rainy or extreme weather; sensitive to atmospheres/barometric and humidity changes. Hate stuffy nose, chest and breathing issues alot! Water fast 2-3 days (no food) when extreme and need it to break. Food has more affect on us than people realize. I’m thinking about juicing to build up immune system with fruits and vegetables and to detox when body needs to recalibrate from food toxicity attacking body and organs. Poor diet really does break us down. I see huge change, when I can discipline myself to right foods and more water to flush out the toxins.

  3. I like the garlic. Slice thin , let sit 10 minutes or so. I sprinkle it onto peanut butter sandwic, bologna and mustard sandwich. Or mix in soup……works for me.

  4. I thought I would have to buy all this stuff. I don’t feel like going anywhere so, I think I will drink plenty of water and get some sleep.

  5. Grate fresh ginger..and, if possible to get, a fresh piece of curcuma (tumuric) root. Add hot water and let steep. Excellent for colds and bronchitis! You can add a little bit of honey if neecasary… (remember the “good” of the natural honey is destroyed in hot water!)

    Also good to do: take fesh onion and cut a few slices. Add hot water (I always bring water to a boil and then wait a few minutes to pour it over). Let it steep. I put it in a mug (just enouh for one person,
    Add little bit of honey… drink while hot. It doesn’t taste bad at all…and onion has excellent qualities!!!

  6. I made the turmeric tea three times yesterday and my cough is much better today. Tumeric is really an amazing anti-inflammatory and can be used for so many things. You can buy the turmeric capsules and just empty two out (1000mg each) in a cup of boiling water. I sipped it through a straw when the water cooled a little. I’m still sick – but MUCH better in only one day!

  7. I used to be a chronic Sinus sufferer. Massive headaches and constant use of tissues. I’d been reading about Goldenseal, had used it to heal my cat who’d been BB gun shot by a neighbor boy: the wound had gotten infected. Cat was fine later.

    Anyway, I brewed up some Goldenseal tea. [This is a messy procedure, but worked for me.] Warm freshly brewed tea, stand in your tub ready for shower. Bend over and snuff up the Goldenseal from your cupped hand into your nose. (while bending over, you breath through your mouth; stay bending over, don’t stand up. Let the Goldenseal stay in your sinus cavity as long as possible. Remember to breathe through your mouth while doing this. Do this several time while the tea is still warm. You’ll get a lot of messy gunky fluids. Just keep spitting. Be happy you are already in the tub and didn’t have to clean up the bathroom floor or the kitchen. It took about 3 tub sessions to heal my sinus infection.

  8. When I have bronchitis I drink hot chocolate made with water not milk. And in my dehydrator set on a setting of 130 I put sliced onions. The smell goes all through the house and it breaks loose the mucus in my lungs. I also take vitamins. C, D, and E. I have it right now need to start up the dehydrator. I eat a lot of garlic whether I’m sick or not. And I add a little of cinnamon to my hot chocolate.

  9. Milk is for the young ‘Calf’only! Humans should Not be consuming a animals infant milk. Humans are natural herbivores and the consumption of animal products and refined foods gives rise to body inflammation as the human body cannot tolerate such a diet.

  10. THANK YOU for all the comments and good advice. I think it will Start feeling better soon. I have used the lemon and ginger and the cinnamon, but I must really try the garlic too. Thank you so much!

My immune system is so low that my bronchial tubes is fighting me but I will not give up home remedies. It’s been a month & a half or so . My Dr. Says I have COPD . Gave me all kinds of meds .
