  10. @geethu @Geethu,
    You can make a thin kashayam..
    Take kaanja malli 2 tsp, peppercorns 1 tsp, ginger a small piece, 1 tsp jeera, (if you are in India, you will get these so add any one of them - vethalai/tulasi/omavalli ilai)
    Boil all these using 1 tumbler water and bring it to half. Very effective.. I do the same for my baby.
    If it is nenjusali, I apply Vicks in vethalai and slightly heat in candle and keep othadam on chest. That's also quite effective.
    Looks like very old post.. But I saw only today when searching for egg recipes.
