Herbal oils / Mixed Herb Oils
Mixed herb oils or herbal oils are preparations in which oil is
boiled with decoctions and pastes of herbs . This process ensures
absorption of the active therapeutic properties of the herbs used.
Mostly oil soluble fractions of these herbs are collected in this
process of manufacturing. Some fine particles of the herbs remain
suspended in these therapeutic oils even after filteration and the
valuable properties of the insoluble fractions are also available for
use through these mixed herb oils.
Method of preparation:
Ingredients used are :-
- Oil which is used as a media( sneha dravya ).
- Paste of herbs ( kalka) ; and
- Liquids which may be one or more, like decoction,juice.etc. in Ayurveda it is known as
drava or qwatha . Normally crude sesame oil is used as sneha dravya,
though occasionally castor oil and coconut oil is also used either in
parts or in full.
As per Ayurveda , unless otherwise given for any specific Ayurvedic
oil , the ratio of the three components are, kalka ( paste of the herbs
) one part, sneha dravya Base oil - media oil ) four parts and drava (
liquid- decoction or juice of the herb ) 16 parts. The general process
is that herbs are ground to get coarse powder (mesh size 40) and mixed
with just sufficient quantity of water to get a pasty mass to obtain
the kalka ( paste of the herbs) . The raw or powdered herbs
(mesh size 10-30) is moistened with water and boiled with 16 times by
volume of water to that of herb quantity and continued boiling to reduce
the volume to one forth. The decoction is strained using a muslin cloth
to obtain the qwatha ( decoction) . Sesame oil is taken in a vessel
and heated for some time; mixed the pasty mass and the aqueous decoction
together. This mixture is boiled on mild fire with stirring to
avoid kalka ( pasty mass) to adhere to the vessel and boiling is
continued till all the water evaporates.
At this stage , the preparation is carefully monitored more often to
ensure that the paste does not get charred and stick to the bottom of
the vessel. A small portion of the paste is taken out with the ladle and
examined from time to time to ascertain the condition and the stage of
the cooking (paka) .
Well-cooked oil does not have any residual moisture (less than
0.1%). The oil is strained while warm through muslin cloth and allowed
Different types of cooking is recommended for different use as per Ayurveda.
Mild cooked mixed herbal oil is for inhalation therapy .
Moderately cooked oil is useful for massage of the body and enema therapy .
The over cooked oil is useful for hair and head massage.
Perfumes and essential oils:
We do not add any extra perfume or essential oil to enhance the aroma of our therapeutic oils .
Vessel for cooking:
It makes a difference of the choice of the vessel to cook the oils. We use heavy copper vessels for cooking therapeutic oils.
But , if some ingredient to be used in the manufacturing of
therapeutic oil is sour in nature, we cook that oil only in heavy 316
Moreover, our vessels to cook oils are double walled with space in
between to let the steam pass. This is more hygienic and prevents the
charring of the paste at the bottom of the vessel.
In classical Ayurveda, charcoals of different types wood are prescribed and we use them as per mentioned in the classics.
Inorder that the therapeutic oils at Herbsforever retain their
potency and efficacy , we use food grade quality glass containers to
It is well known that vegetable oils show degradation and development
of rancidity due to heat and exposure to moisture. In the process
described above both these factors are involved intensely for long
periods, up to 5 days . The processes are energy intensive involving
lot of boiling and cooking, and hence add to cost of processing .
Extraction of herbal components in to the sesame oil, role of using
herbs in both pasty form and decoction form donot show any changes
in the property of sesame oil . When the physico-chemical properties,
including chromatographic profiles, extraction of herbal components in
to the sesame oil were observed , sesame oil was found to be stable .
