This is about preparing a kashayam / decoction for curing cold & cough with light fever(சளி ,இருமலுடன் ஜுரம் இவற்றை குணப் படுத்தும் கஷாயம்) at our home.
- Take 5 gms of thirikadugam powder. 2 betel leaves, 2 omavalli( karpooravalli ) leaves, either palm candy or palm jaggery, some tulsi leaves.
- Take 200 ml of water.Put all these in it & boil it well till it becomes 100 ml.
- This is for adults.For children above 5 years, take half of all these like one betel leave, one omavalli leave ,half the quantity of palm jaggery or palm candy,some tulsi leaves.
- This is for one time.Take it morning once & also evening once.If there is already fever, avoid palm jaggery or candy.Instead you prepare the decoction without it.
- After slightly cooling it add two tea spoons of honey into it & take it.
