AbstractBackground: Sneha kalpana helps to extract the fat soluble active principle from drug to sneha. Medicated taila/ghrita is one of the important dosage forms widely described in ayurvedic pharmaceutics. The concept of avartana (process repeated again and again) has a great role in minimizing the dose of sneha (ghrita or Taila) based formulation. Medicated taila and ghrita are an important part of Ayurveda therapeutics as bahya and abhyantar Chikitsa ( Paana, Nasya, abhyang, Basti). Guduchi taila is described for vatrakta Chikitsa by in chakradatta.
Aim & Objective: The objective of the study is to prepare Guduchi taila by Dasha Paka vidhi that is to repeat the process 10 times.
Materials and Methods: The Dasha paka Guduchi taila was prepared using Chakradatta reference. The oil is prepared in three batches to generate the standard manufacturing procedures.
.Results: The oil prepared from Dasha Paka vidhi is Dark greenish, odour is sweetish, and having viscous consistency.The final yield was obtained in 3 batches of oil i.e 5.9, 5.8, and 5.6 from the initial quantity of 7-liter Tila tail. Total loss was observed in 3 bathces i.e 1.1,1.2 and 1.4. Conclusion: The current study reflects standardization and opens a unique concept regarding Avartana process.
