Herbs for Coughs

I have a cough. Here are some herbs I plan to use to make it feel better.

Chamomile- A good antispasmodic. Can help quiet a coughing fit.

Marshmallow Root- Soothing and healing for the lungs. Excellent for coughs.

Licorice- I would normally use licorice in these situations. However, I am having a problem with water retention so I think I will stay away.

Peppermint- I think the menthol quality is just what I need right now. I need something to loosen the phlegm and open my lungs up.
