Take one leaf from the cabbage and put it in hot water for a few minutes. It will become warm and soft. Then put honey on one side of the leaf. Put that side, where the honey is, on the chest. Put a plastic bag over the cabbage and wrap a scarf or towel. It is recommended to do this before going to sleep.
If the cough is strong, you will need two leaves of cabbage – you should apply one on the chest and the other one on the back. Take off the leaves in the morning. Wipe the skin with a wet cloth, or wash the place where the leaves were, and everything that it managed to pull out.
