How to get rid of mucus in the throat

There are several natural ways of getting the body rid of mucus without subjecting it to any formal kind of medication. You can start with steaming your face with hot water that has a few drops of eucalyptus oil added to it. This will help in clearing up the congestion by melting mucus from the sinuses. Half a teaspoon each of ginger juice and honey mixed and taken thrice a day will also help loosen mucus in throat. Grapes are a very good way of loosening phlegm and clearing up the lungs. Have a cup of grape juice warm, with a teaspoon of honey added to it at least thrice a day. This will help in getting rid of congestion and help with getting rid of mucus as well. Half a cup of onion juice with two teaspoons of honey added to it will also have the same effect.

Make an herbal tea with holy basil, aniseed, peppercorns and ginger and have this warm. If you cannot take the spice, add honey to it. Honey is also beneficial in loosening mucus. Have a glass of hot milk with half a teaspoon of turmeric powder mixed in. This is the best way to get rid of mucus. Also you must remember to spit out any mucus that rises in your throat constantly. This is the best way to get the mucus out of your system.
