Primrose has long been known as a remedy for cough and bronchitis. This herb is rich in vitamin C, reduces the symptoms in the lungs and facilitates expulsion of mucus from the bronchi.
Experienced herbalists say that the most effective in treating bronchitis is syrup made from this plant.
Instead of syrup, you can make a tea by mixing 10 grams of evening primrose root, the fruit of anise, chamomile and marshmallow leaf and 20 grams of licorice root and thyme.
Pour a cup of boiling water over a spoon of this mixture, let sit for 20 minutes, strain and drink. Daily you can drink more than three cups of tea.
