Herbel Cure Remedies

  • In irritation or pain in the throat - Gargle with warm water in which tulsi leaves have been boiled, and drink the same, until relief is obtained.

  • In night blindness - Instill 2 drops of tulsi leaves in the eyes daily at bedtime.

  • In insect sting or allergic rashes - Drink tulsijuice in water and apply the fresh juice on the stung area to reduce inflammation. In skin infections too, the same procedure is highly beneficial.
