Also, in modern medicine, plants occupy a very important place as the raw material for many important drugs. Medicinal plants have curative actions due to the presence of complex chemical constituents.

If in powder form, steep two teaspoonful in one cup (250 ml) of boiled water, leave to extract for 15 minutes and drink 3-5 times a day.
