Instead of reaching for that cough syrup that makes you drowsy the whole of the next day, here is a home remedy to treat coughs effectively and get the desired results. It is easy to lay your hands on these ingredients.
Tulasi - 6 leaves
Omavalli - 6 leaves
Vetrillai - 1 leaf
Pepper - 10 numbers
Jaggery – Size of a small ball
Crush all the three and strain the extract. Make a fine powder of pepper and add it to the extract. Transfer the concoction to a big cup of hot water and add jaggery to it. Allow it to settle down. Drink it after five minutes. Drink twice daily for three days.
The cough will subside and the phlegm will be flushed out.
