PHARMACEUTICAL PREPARATION OF PAMANTHAKA TAILA WITH NARIKELA GHRITA
Keywords:Keraajya, Pamathaka tailam, Pama
Bhaishajya kalpana is the science which deals with process of preparation of single or compound formulations. Different dosages are introduced to get better therapeutic efficacy to increase palatability, potency and shelf life. Snehakalpana in Ayurvedic pharmaceutics is so peculiar because of its property of absorbing the principles of drug and stores it for longer periods without losing its own property. Pamantaka taila is one of the unique formulations with minimum ingredients mentioned in book of Ayurveda yoga sangraha for skin disorders. Pamantaka taila, prepared using Keraajya, is an effective medicine in many types of skin diseases where itching is a main symptom. Keraajya is prepared from coconut milk. The preparation of Keraajya is a strenuous and time-consuming process and its yield is also very less. In clinical practice prescribing tailas depends upon various symptoms of the patient. There comes the need of analysis of pharmacological properties, method of preparation, characteristics, probable mode of action and recent works on scabies which can increase its scope for further studies.
