Herbal Oils, the Heart of Ayurveda


The application of herbal oil is the heart of Ayurvedic treatment. Oiling the body is a great way to keep the skin soft, supple and beautiful. Herbal oil massage offers great benefits; it normalizes vata and pitta, increases immunity, strengthens bones and muscles, nourishes skin cells, increases longevity, improves the quality of vision, speech, and sleep. It is simply anti-aging.  


Arya Vaidya Sala (AVS) classical Ayurvedic oils are made from sesame, coconut, castor or mustard oil


  • Sesame oil normalizes vata and kapha
  • Coconut oil normalizes pitta, increases kapha
  • Castor oil normalizes vata, increases pitta
  • Mustard oil normalizes vata and kapha, increases pitta

    The most beneficial application of herbal oil is daily self-massage. The regular practice of applying herbal oil before a warm shower or bath is anti-aging. Begin by massaging the lower extremities, work your way up the body toward the heart, shoulders, and arms. Massage with long circular motions for 5 - 10 minutes, and more if you have time. The warm shower or bath helps the oil penetrate. Be sure to use an all-natural soap and completely wash off the oily residue, then towel dry.

      The Traditional Formulations

      Churnams are single dravyas that are finely ground and strained through a fine sieve. The result is a fine light powder that easily absorbs. Single churnams are combined to make traditional formulations. Churnams are the main components for kashayas, kwathams, arishtams, lehams, oils, and ghritams. Some churnams are produced for internal use while others are for external use only. There are five aqueous extracts known as the pañca kaṣāya.
