Ivy has an expectorant action on the chest. Expectorants loosen the mucous from the tubes of the lungs, encouraging its expulsion and elimination. Often troublesome coughs indicate difficulty in eliminating mucous and a herb such as ivy, in thinning mucous, helps to clear the chest.
Thyme’s terpenoids provide the herb with its expectorant properties while the flavonoids in the herb provide thyme with its spasmolytic effects.
