Home Remedies

This is the second post on my blog. Like yesterday today too is a cloudy and dull day and I am sipping ginger tea after hair bath and typing this. When I was a young girl I remember my mother taking ginger tea in the evenings and tulsi tea in the mornings .She would cajole us to drink some but we always spurned her offer. Later on in life I faced many health problems and the herbal remedies suggested by her and reinforced by my own research, experimentation and experience helped me a lot in getting relief from many ailments without paying visits to doctors.

I wish to do the motherly act of sharing those home remedies by putting them in words to be read by all the daughters in the world.

The benefits of Tulsi: it is a very valuable herb and is grown in many homes in a vacant spot or in a pot .It has numerous medicinal properties and helps to cure cough, colds bronchitis and fever .It is anti-inflammatory, antipyretic and general feel good herb. While preparing your morning cup of tea, add a few leaves of fresh tulsi to the boiling water, reduce heat and let it simmer for a minute; you will love the green hue of the water and then prepare tea in the regular way. It will be refreshing, rejuvenating and energizing. You will feel the effect within a few days. In case of mild fever due to cold or exhaustion, drink a cup of hot tulsi tea, lie down and cover yourself with a blanket from head to toe, try to relax, in no time you will break into sweat and fever goes away. Daily intake of tulsi tea detoxifies and clears intestinal worms. Because of its manifold qualities it is worshipped in many homes. In my next post I will talk about some other important herb. Do let me have your feedback.
