Sri Lankan Home Remedies for Cracked Lips and Sore-Mouths

At certain times of the year especially in the colder climates we experience cracked lips and sometimes sore-mouths. A good remedy for this is Katurumurunga leaves cooked in gingelly oil. In Sanskrit this leaf is called AGASTI after the great sage and master of medicine. It's also called VERNI meaning enemy of sores. It is very effective for sores and ulcers when used as plaster. Oil made with these leaves brings relief to those suffering from catarrh.
