Chest congestion can be terrible and painful.  If you suffer from diabetes, high blood pressure, or other things you may not be able to take all medicines available to cure chest congestion. I found some home remedies for chest congestion that I will share with you.  You don’t need to stop at the pharmacy for these remedies.

Take a hot shower

You should take a hot shower for chest congestion.  The steam will help loosen phlegm in your throat and sinuses.  You should inhale the steam. Unfortunately, the bathroom will get hot in the summertime.

Drink hot beverages

The steam from the hot beverage will get rid of chest congestion. You should breathe the steam deeply before each sip.  Hopefully you won’t burn your tongue when you sip the beverage.

Get towels in hot water

Wrap two towels around your chest.  Lay down under a blanket for three minutes.  You should repeat this step two times.  Wipe down your chest with a cold cloth after.

Massage your chest

A chest massage will help to strengthen the chest muscles, increase circulation, and tone up the nervous system of chest, heart and lungs.  You can do this for a few minutes for an unlimited amount of time during the day. 

Drink green tea

You should drink lots of hot green tea.  You should drink three to four cups of hot green tea for at least two days.  This should get rid of your chest congestion.  An extra tip would be to add some apple cider vinegar whenever you drink the green tea.  I must warn you that it may be nasty if you put too much vinegar in the tea.  Try one or two teaspoons of the vinegar.

Use apple cider vinegar

Put some apple cider vinegar on a cotton ball and rub it across your chest, your neck, up to your ears, and your throat.  This will loosen up the phlegm in your throat.  You may not smell too hot afterwards so it will give you a chance to take a hot shower.  You will be able to combine two steps with this one.

Use a heating pad

Turn on a heating pad and place it on your chest.  Your coughing should stop and the tightness in your chest should go away.  Don’t turn the heating pad up too high or else you will burn your chest.

That’s all the tips I have.  Feel free to add any of your chest congestion remedies.  I am always interested in discovering new ways to get rid of chest congestions. I hope these help you.

  11. All sound good except the Apple Cider Vinegar one
    that stuff smells nasty.

  12. These are great ideas, I don’t get chest congestion often but when do, I am miserable. I usually take a hot shower and then drink hot tea, after I step out of the tub. I still on this little kids bench, and breath in the moist heat and enjoy my tea.

  18. I’m very congested right now I’ll give the green tea a try, thanks for the tip.

  19. Apple cider vinegar is great for sunburns. Applied either directly or a generous amount (a half litre) in the bath and soak as per usual. the vinegar will soothe and cool, reduce the redness and prevent peeling. It seems to also reduce the fever associated with severe sunburn overexposure too

  20. Thanks for the wonderful cold remedies. I am one with hypertension who cannot take antihistamines.

    Take care & God bless!

    Best Regards

  23. I’ve never heard of using Apple Cider Vinegar for sunburns like the commenter said. I used Aloe Vera gel a few years ago when I got a really bad sun burn. I went to Holiday World all day with no sunscreen on and got burnt really bad.

  24. These are indeed helpful.

  25. Very helpful Remedies!

  26. Great health tips. I felt light hearted for this, Cheryl.
