Ayurveda: Mahanarayan oil for joint and muscular pains

Mahanarayan Taila is a polyherbal traditional Ayurvedic medicated oil referenced from Bhaishajya ratnavali, Vata Vyadhyadhikara (Nervous disorders). This oil is generally used externally in all type of Vata Rogas. Vata Roga occur due to excess air or vata, the element that regulates sensory-motor skills.

Massaging with this oil balances the Vata and helps to get quick relief from joint pains (arthritis), backache, pain in the ribs etc. The base oil of Mahanarayan Taila is Sesame seed oil. Sesame Oil is one of the most popular massage oil. It is used as base oil to prepare Ayurvedic medicated oil. It is heavy, unctuous, bitter, astringent and hot in potency.
