Method of Blending of Ayurveda Massage Oil
Ayurveda massage oils are quite different from the other kind of massage oils available in the market, by virtue of its properties and preparations.
In order to prepare 1 litre 'Thailam' (Ayurveda Massage oil), 1 kilogram of dried herbs are boiled in 16 liters of water until it is reduced to just 4 liters of 'Kasha yam' (decoction). And then 120 gm. of medicines (powdered and ground) as 'Kalkam' (paste) and 1 liter juice of fresh herbs - 'Swarasam' are added to the oil and mixed together, and boiled in low flame until the whole water of the mixture is vaporized. While boiling, the medicinal qualities of the herbals are absorbed by the oil, and the oil becomes medicated.
