To help treat respiratory tract infections such as bronchitis and pleurisy, place one teaspoon of shredded elecampane in a saucepan. Add one cup of cold water, then gently simmer for fifteen minutes. Allow the brew to cool before drinking. Take up to three cups per day.
If you are new to the taste of elecampane, be warned that it is an extremely bitter herb! To counter its unpleasant taste, you may find it helpful to add a spoonful or two of honey to the brew. Also take care not to consume elecampane in large amounts as it can be quite upsetting to the system.
A soothing homemade chest rub can easily be made by mixing ten drops of thyme essential oil into one teaspoon of almond oil. When rubbed upon the chest, it works well to help break up and get rid of the infected phlegm and congestion that accompanies acute and chronic bronchitis.
