Karpooravalli (Plectranthus amboinicus) is one of a home remedy that works when we get a cold and cough even for kids. It is a traditional herb in Tamil Nadu widely used for medical purposes. Crushed leaves are used as a local application to head in headache and to relieve the pain and irritation caused by poisonous bites. Extracted juice is applied round the orbit to relieve the pain in conjunctivitis. It is good for digestion. We can also eat directly after washing it. You can also make coffee by dipping two or three fresh leaf inside the hot water. It also possesses muscle-relaxant action, bactericidal and fungicidal properties. I just got a seedling from neighbor and planted it in my garden.
