Karpooravalli (Plectranthus amboinicus), once identified as Coleus amboinicus, is a semi-succulent perennial plant in the family Lamiaceae   with a pungent oregano-like flavor and odor.

It is native to Southern and Eastern Africa. It is widely cultivated and naturalized elsewhere in the tropics where it is used as a traditional medicine, spice, and ornamental plant.

Plectranthus amboinicus is traditionally used for treating cold and cough.

It is used for treating headache too. It is a common practice to give karpooravalli rasam to people suffering from cold, cough and fever.

Karpooravalli is used as an ingredient for making oil baths as it helps in preventing headache and cold especially in winter season. It is used for treating hair problems and for treating dandruff.

The leaves are strongly flavoured. Fresh leaves are used to scent laundry and hair. It is also grown as an ornamental plant.

The leaves can be used to make rasam and a herbal remedy (kashayam) that offers symptomatic relief from cold and sniffles.

It is also used in the treatment of hiccups, mouth ulcers, skin infections, colic asthma and indigestion.
