Wild Cherry Bark
According to A Modern Herbal, by M. Grieve, Wild Cherry Bark (Prunus serotina) is an astringent tonic that helps dry up the mucus membranes. It also relaxes the airways, so the bronchioles are less likely to be triggered into a cough. It has been used to support the health of the bronchioles and lung tissue.1

Osha Root
Osha root (Ligusticum porteri) is a perennial herb that has been used by Native Americans as a sacred herb to calm coughs, congestion and a variety of respiratory concerns. Perhaps its most active constituent is the camphor found in the root, which helps open the airways as well as support natural sterols that help the body muster the energy and immunity needed to support the decongestive process.

According to the Herbal Materia Medicia, thyme (Thymus vulgaris) has been used for thousands of years as an anti-spasmodic for the respiratory airways.2In one study, thyme was compared to a placebo with folks with a cough. During a 7-9 day period, the reduction of cough fits was up to a whopping 68%.3

Licorice Root
Licorice (Glycyrrhiza glabra) is a classic Ayurvedic herb used worldwide as a natural lubricant for the respiratory airways. Licorice naturally lubricates and soothes the sinuses and airways, which quells the production of excess reactive mucus. In one study, licorice helped protect the lungs from reactive irritation while also supporting deeper and healthier breathing.4

Grindelia Herb
According to the Herbal Materia Medica, Grindelia robusta or gumweed was a traditional medicine of California's Native Chumash Indians. It naturally opens the airways and supports respiratory health.6

Slippery Elm Bark
Slippery Elm Bark (Ulmus rubra) is perhaps one of the most effective herbal demulcents for the respiratory tract. When the bark is cooked down it become more viscous, which allows it to adhere to the mucus membranes and offer lasting support for the sinuses, throat and bronchioles. Many Ayurvedic formulas for respiratory health are built around the effectivity of Slippery Elm Bark.6,7

Peppermint Leaf
Peppermint (Mentha piperita) is naturally rich in airway-opening menthols. These menthols also help to thin any excess reactive mucus and, in one study, peppermint was shown to reduce sneezing, nasal rubbing, and nasal leakage in rats.8

White Pine Bark
White Pine Bark (Pinus albicaulis) is a natural supportive herb for the respiratory tract. It also contains natural calming constituents that can help relax the airways, supporting healthy deep breathing.9

Yerba Santa Leaf
Yerba Santa Leaf (Eriodictyon glutinosum) is an evergreen that supports healthy bronchial and pulmonary and respiratory function. It has been used traditionally alongside Grindelia robusta.10

Ginger Root
Ginger (Zingiber officinale) is known in Ayurveda as the "Universal Spice" because it has so many health properties. For coughs, it can thin excess mucus and boost immunity. In one study, fresh ginger was effective at boosting immunity against undesirable microbes in the respiratory tract.11

Horehound (Marrubium globosum) is found in almost every herbal formula used to support healthy bronchial, respiratory and pulmonary function. Naturally rich in menthols, horehound supports opening airways for deeper and more efficient respiration.

Menthol Crystals
Naturally found in many plants like peppermint and horehound, menthol has been studied to help reduce nasal sensitivity, resulting in the possibility of decreased reactive mucus productions and a subjective sense of decongestion.12
