Tulsi (holy basil) is great for productive cough in kids. Let us first understand the properties of Tulsi.

  • Light to digest
  • Dry
  • Hot
  • Subsides Kapha
  • Treats lack of appetite
  • Improves digestion

To make Tulsi cough drops, mix:

  • 1 to 2 Tulsi leaves
  • 2 teaspoons honey
  • Half a pinch organic turmeric powder
  • Half a pinch long pepper
  • Half a pinch black pepper


You can give 5ml of this 2-3 times a day. Since all the ingredients are hot (ushna), discontinue use after 2 weeks.

The ideal Tusli for this recipe is Krishna Tulasi.
