Research Facts
Another mucilaginous herb that helps to soothe inflammation, licorice root is great for all sorts of coughs. Its mucilaginous properties make it great for dry irritated membranes, while it's also a natural expectorant, making it great for helping rid a wet productive cough of all the phlegm. Licorice root is also used in many syrups to help sweeten the flavor due to some of the bitter tasting herbs that many syrups contain.
Warm and spicy, anise seed is great relieving dry painful spasmodic coughs with phlegm that is difficult to release. Spasmodic barking-like coughs also find relief with Anise seed
