  1. Neel ji,

    Can I use these on my child? Should I light the camphor just before my child goes to sleep or after she has slept? Should I leave the copper vessel with water and salt near her bedside ? And what to do with the water in the morning? Can you pls clarify my doubts. Thank you sir.

    1. The first remedy about the Swhet Gunja is suitable for your child as it appears that the child in an infant and needs a remedy, which does not involve the application of any substance.
