Steam the leaves after washing and squeeze it to get the juice mix it with equal quantity of honey. Immediate remedy for cough. This may be used for children also. I had given this to my elder son. My husband who is an adamant ayurvedic follower will always take this medicine. This may also use with Jeerakam. Dry this leaves and crush it with Kalkandam, Chukku and Jeerakam. This powder is also very effective. It is very hard to swallow this juice due to its bitter taste. But its really an 'ottamooli' to cough.
Used for the treatment of chronic bronchitis and Asthma. The juice of the leaves is also used to cure diarrhoea and dysentary.
