Abstract


Sneha kalpana is one among the upakalpana of BhaishajyaKalpana that deals with the preparation of medicated ghrita and taila. Murchana is a procedure explained in Bhaishajya Ratnavali as a pre-requisite of sneha paka. It helps in the enhancement of appetite of drug absorption of sneha which may help in the extraction of more active principle. Kampillakadi taila is a formulation mentioned for the treatment of vrana. The amount of ingredients were taken according to samanyaniyama of snehapaka andpakalakshanas were accessed. The present study was an attempt to compare the properties of murchita and amurchita kampillakadi taila.  Physico-chemical evaluation and HPTLC analysis of the formulation was also carried out.Specific gravity revealed addition of active constituents in taila, which was greater in murchita sample. Refractive index of both samples remained same. LOD showed more moisture content in murchita sample. Result of acid value, iodine value and saponification value show increase in unsaturation in the amurchita sample. Peroxide value was found higher in amurchita sample. HPTLC analysis showed the presence of same peaks in all the samples. Some additional peaks were also found in the sample prepared with murchita taila. From this study we may conclude that Murchana samskara of sneha has high significance in establishing stability of product for better therapeutic efficacy.
