Pine needles are a very effective natural cough remedy. To make medicine from them, boil 1 cup of pine needles in 2 cups water for about 10 minutes. Then strain out the pine needles. Add honey and take a few tablespoons, as needed.
If the coughing is from asthma, then this natural remedy will work. The herb helps dilate the bronchial pathway, allowing more air to enter the lungs. It is also great at drying up mucus and decongesting.
