Sri Lankan Herbal Plants - Lunuwila

Lunuwila, another useful herb, may not be found in the home gardens of all urban dwellings, but it is readily available in the vegetable market. For high fever resulting from chickenpox and measles, Lunuvila, aralu and kottamallie boiled as for a decoction is given with sugar to taste. If fever is accompanied by cough valmee and pathpadagam (from the Beheth Kaday) may be included.
