Dear Firthous, it is 100% true that thulsi water is very good for the infants. In support of this statement I reproduce an article that I read recently for your study and conclusion.

Children are affected by various diseases very quickly rather than adults.

The common problems in children are cold, fever, vomitting, worm, diarrhoea etc. Here are some ayurvedic Tulsi treatments which are easily available at home.

To maintain children`s health two gms of Tulsi juice three to four times a day will prevent all types of sickness.


In case of fever caused by a cold, Tulsi juice should be smeared on the chest and forehead. The child should be made to inhale the vapours emanating from the juice, and should also be given a teaspoonful of the juice with half a teaspoonful of honey.


If an infant develops a cough, administer five gms of Tulsi leaves, five gms of kakdashingi and five gms of ativish buds crushed together, made into a paste with honey and the mother`s milk.


A mixture of Tulsi leaf juice and kasondara leaf juice is also a good remedy for coughs.


Ten gms of Tulsi leaves, ten gms of methi seeds and five gms of kadu twigs may be boiled in 50 gms of water till only one-fourth of the water remains. Cool and strain. Administration of this extract is beneficial in fevers preceded by cold rigours, such as malaria.


If the abdomen of a baby is distended due to the accumulation of gas, the condition can be relieved by giving it five to ten gms of Tulsi juice, the exact amount given depending on the age of the baby.


In case of diarrhoea accompanying teething, powdered Tulsi leaves should be given to the child with pomegranate syrup.


Letting the baby lick a mixture of Tulsi juice and honey will bring quick relief in sore throat and cough.


If a cough is due to excessive phlegm, the juice of Shyama Tulsi mixed with honey will help. This mixture is of great value in the treatment of a child with a tendency to vomit frequently.


In case a baby is suffering from colic, giving it a little powdered stone (dry) ginger with Tulsi leaf juice will afford relief.


Massaging the gums with Tulsi leaf juice mixed with honey will help the baby cut its teeth easily, without the usual troubles associated with teething.


Five to ten drops of Tulsi leaf juice given with water every day will strengthen the muscles and bones of the infant.


Influenza can be cured by regular administration of 30 to 60 drops of a mixture of 15 gms of Tulsi leaf juice, 15 gms of honey, five gms of ginger juice and five gms of powdered ajwan seeds.


Heat 200 gms of Tulsi leaf juice with 125 gms of water. Let the liquid simmer for one hour on a low flame. Prepare a thick syrup of 500 gms of sugar, and stir the mixture into the syrup. Administration of three to five gms of this preparation to a child cures fever, cough and shortness of breath.


If there is a whistling sound heard from the lungs because of the accumulation of phlegm give milk in which Tulsi leaves have been boiled.


The extract of Tulsi roots sweetened with sugar will relieve constipation and distension of the stomach, ensuring a satisfactory bowel movement.


Ten gms of Tulsi leaves and ten gms of peepar ground together and rolled into small pills. Three or four of these pills given to a child every day will cure coughs, including whooping cough.


Take five gms of each of these ingredients: Tulsi inflorescences, vachh, small peepar, and mulethi. Add 25 gms of sugar. Add 250 gms of water and boil till only 1/3rd of water are left. Cool and strain. Administration of five gms of this extract five to six times during the day and also during the night will cure the child of dry hollow cough.


An extract of Tulsi leaves and inflorescences given with jaggery to a child will afford relief in difficulty in breathing.


Powdered bark of Tulsi roots given with honey helps an obese child to shed some of the fat.


Extract of Tulsi is an effective remedy for liver disorders of children.

Please donot use honey for the infants under age 1. Honey causes Infant Botulism which puts baby's life in danger... Doctors never recommend honey for the infants under age1

The tulsi or holy basil is an important symbol in the Hindu religious tradition and is worshiped in the morning and evening by Hindus at large. The holy basil is also a herbal remedy for a lot of common ailments. Here're top fifteen medicinal uses of tulsi.

1. Healing Power: The tulsi plant has many medicinal properties. The leaves are a nerve tonic and also sharpen memory. They promote the removal of the catarrhal matter and phlegm from the bronchial tube. The leaves strengthen the stomach and induce copious perspiration. The seed of the plant are mucilaginous.
2. Fever & Common Cold: The leaves of basil are specific for many fevers. During the rainy season, when malaria and dengue fever are widely prevalent, tender leaves, boiled with tea, act as preventive against theses diseases. In case of acute fevers, a decoction of the leaves boiled with powdered cardamom in half a liter of water and mixed with sugar and milk brings down the temperature. The juice of tulsi leaves can be used to bring down fever. Extract of tulsi leaves in fresh water should be given every 2 to 3 hours. In between one can keep giving sips of cold water. In children, it is every effective in bringing down the temperature.

3. Coughs: Tulsi is an important constituent of many Ayurvedic cough syrups and expectorants. It helps to mobilize mucus in bronchitis and asthma. Chewing tulsi leaves relieves cold and flu.
4. Sore Throat: Water boiled with basil leaves can be taken as drink in case of sore throat. This water can also be used as a gargle.
5. Respiratory Disorder: The herb is useful in the treatment of respiratory system disorder. A decoction of the leaves, with honey and ginger is an effective remedy for bronchitis, asthma, influenza, cough and cold. A decoction of the leaves, cloves and common salt also gives immediate relief in case of influenza. They should be boiled in half a liter of water till only half the water is left and add then taken.
6. Kidney Stone: Basil has strengthening effect on the kidney. In case of renal stone the juice of basil leaves and honey, if taken regularly for 6 months it will expel them via the urinary tract.
7. Heart Disorder: Basil has a beneficial effect in cardiac disease and the weakness resulting from them. It reduces the level of blood cholesterol.
8. Children's Ailments: Common pediatric problems like cough cold, fever, diarrhea and vomiting respond favorably to the juice of basil leaves. If pustules of chicken pox delay their appearance, basil leaves taken with saffron will hasten them.
9. Stress: Basil leaves are regarded as an 'adaptogen' or anti-stress agent. Recent studies have shown that the leaves afford significant protection against stress. Even healthy persons can chew 12 leaves of basil, twice a day, to prevent stress. It purifies blood and helps prevent several common elements.
10. Mouth Infections: The leaves are quit effective for the ulcer and infections in the mouth. A few leaves chewed will cure these conditions.
11. Insect Bites: The herb is a prophylactic or preventive and curative for insect stings or bites. A teaspoonful of the juice of the leaves is taken and is repeated after a few hours. Fresh juice must also be applied to the affected parts. A paste of fresh roots is also effective in case of bites of insects and leeches.
12. Skin Disorders: Applied locally, basil juice is beneficial in the treatment of ringworm and other skin diseases. It has also been tried successfully by some naturopaths in the treatment of leucoderma.
13. Teeth Disorder: The herb is useful in teeth disorders. Its leaves, dried in the sun and powdered, can be used for brushing teeth. It can also be mixed with mustered oil to make a paste and used as toothpaste. This is very good for maintaining dental health, counteracting bad breath and for massaging the gums. It is also useful in pyorrhea and other teeth disorders.
14. Headaches: Basil makes a good medicine for headache. A decoction of the leaves can be given for this disorder. Pounded leaves mixed with sandalwood paste can also be applied on the forehead for getting relief from heat, headache, and for providing coolness in general.
15. Eye Disorders: Basil juice is an effective remedy for sore eyes and night-blindness, which is generally caused by deficiency of vitamin A. Two drops of black basil juice are put into the eyes daily at bedtime.
