Onion Poultice for Cough

I happened to sleep over when my little nephew had a severe cough. He was coughing every five minutes. Amazingly he was able to sleep through it even though his mother and I couldn’t. At midnight I asked her if I could help and being desperate, she agreed. So I made him a poultice of onions and we put them on his chest. We also put some EO on too. He immediately stopped coughing and we all slept for the next 5-6 hours with no coughing. We did onion poultices every night for a few days until the cough was gone...and everyone got sleep. It’s one of the most dramatic effects I’ve seen. She said that if she hadn’t witnessed it herself that she would never have believed it.
