Possibly Plectranthus amboinicus. But the vegetative characters are not clear. Therefore, please check all the characters (veg. and floral) for correct ID.

Please mention the size of leaves; because it (vegetative) appears like P.amboniacus.
This herb is Plectranthus caninus of Lamiaceae.
Please check the previous discussion here

I think … is correct with Plectranthus caninus. Please check it.

The size of the leaf is 2-2.5 inch. I don’t have the close up of leaves picture.
