In Ayurveda, medicated oils and ghritam (medicated ghee) are prepared using specific processes and principles described in detail in the classical Ayurvedic texts. These remedies are used by Ayurvedic physicians for many kinds of disorders affecting the different systems of the human body.
Ayurveda has enjoyed a longtime love affair with oil. So it’s no coincidence that the Sanskrit word for oil, sneha, also means love. Snehana means the application of oil, which is performed externally on the skin through therapeutic treatments, or internally through consuming oil orally.
