ONION POULTICE TO CLEAR CHEST CONGESTION
Slice 2 peeled onions thinly. Steam for about few minutes, or until soft. Then, spread the onions out in the middle of a clean cotton towel. Fold the towel and tie it off with a string or a rubber band so that none of the onions can leak out. Apply it as warm as possible on the chest/throat area. Leave it on for a while, at least 15 minutes. The onion poultice often quickly induces a productive cough. Allow yourself to cough up as much phlegm as you can.
