Relieve Pain with Prasarini Oil

Relieve Pain with Prasarini Oil

by Kottakkal Support July 24, 2020

Cheriya Prasarini Oil

Our body works hard all day for us, and with our busy lives sometimes it can be difficult to find the time to completely relax physically and give our muscles the downtime and extra care that they need. Our muscles support us physically and also energetically and emotionally. When your muscles are stretched, flexible, strong and healthy, emotionally and energetically you will feel confident, supported and calm.

When our muscles are depleted, we must nourish them with different practices and herbal treatments. Yoga is a powerful way to take care of your muscles. But practicing abhyanga, self-massage, using Prasarini Oil is an excellent addition to consistent Yoga and exercise. 

Prasarini Oil is a traditional, classically-formulated Ayurvedic oil that has been used for thousands of years to externally support the healing of rheumatoid arthritis, sciatica, neck pain and general muscle stiffness. This is what makes it so ideal for sore and depleted muscles. Athletes and those who workout often are especially fond of this oil.

Common Indications

  • Stiffness in the head and neck
  • Lock jaw
  • Lower back pain
  • Sciatica
  • Kyphosis
  • Paraplegia
  • Facial palsy
Prasarini Oil

Prasarini Oil balances both Vata and Kapha Dosha, which is why it is also a good choice for abhyanga. Be sure to heat it lightly on the stove before massaging it into your skin. The Ayurvedic texts also say that using this oil externally increases fertility in women and men because of its overall healing and rejuvenating qualities. Prasarini Oil is also used for Ayurvedic therapies like Kativasti, Greevabasti and Basti. 

More Product Information

Prasarini Oil can be used for a long period of time on a daily basis. Discuss with an experienced practitioner. There are no known side effects associated with using this oil externally. Prasarini Oil is used along with Rhukot Tablets, Gandha Oil and Yogaraja Guggulu to heal arthritis and joint and muscle pains.

Prasarini Oil contains more than 10 potent herbs cooked in sesame oil. The main active ingredient is Prasarini (Paederia foetida).
