Could you please tell me what the following herbs are called in Tamil (and common English terms in you know them too) pretty please? :) :) :ee: :) :)
Thank you .



Gotukola (Centella Aslatica)
Uses: this herb is said to have a direct action on lowering the blood pressure and is often referred to as a rejuvenating medicament. The leaves are eaten raw or finely cut and roasted with scraped coconut. They are believed to purify the blood and cure indigestion, nervousness and dysentry . The leaves are dried, powdered and taken with milk to improve the memory


Pol Pala (Aerva lanata)
Dried powder used as a substitute for tea. A reputed diuretic and considered of great value in lithiasis and for coughs and as a vermifuge for children
Hathawariya

Orilaithamarai ஒரிலைத் தாமரை (single leaf lotus, literally),
or babassa,
or much more commonly in tamil nadu: vallaaRai - வல்லாறை..

Here is a PDF file that lists various herbs (in alphabetical order), and their regional names (tamil, sinhalease, hindi etc).. You might want to download it straight on to your pc, and then open it, because its about 60 pages long.. :b:
