What Does Ayurveda Say About the Benefits of Karpasastyadi Thailam?
Karpasastyadi Thailam is an effective herbal oil that supports bone and neuromuscular structures. People use it as a topical oil for massaging the joints and muscles, as it promotes nerve strength.
At Athreya Herbs, our Ayurvedic experts cook Karpasastyadi Thailam oil in cottonseed oil with natural herbs. The unique herbal blend is commonly used to promote the strength and flexibility of joints and muscles. It has a warm, soothing effect that provides nourishment to the joints when massaged topically.
The main ingredient, cottonseed oil, has excellent transdermal absorption properties. When massaged on the neck, it promotes the flexibility and comfortable movement of the muscles. Additionally, it supports the activation of tendons, muscles, and ligaments and promotes healthy blood circulation.3 Its companion ingredients Himalayan Cedarwood and white mustard seed have similar effects due to their high nutrient content. Cedarwood also helps maintain optimal body mass and bone density.
Adding to this is the dried ginger root. Its bitter and dry presence is beneficial for immune health. Ginger root and arrowleaf Sida plants serve as Ayurvedic rejuvenators for our body’s natural defense mechanism. They support its immune-response against environmental stressors and occasional inflammation. This activity is enhanced by Shigru which supports healthy secretions in the joints. This action promotes healthy bone structure and mobility.
We also include Punarnava in this herbal blend. Its warm and nourishing potency soothes excessive Vata dosha without aggravating the Pitta (fire). It also maintains healthy blood circulation, which has a rejuvenating effect on all vital organs. Thereby, making it a great supplement for heart health, liver health, and kidney support. It directly aids the natural development and function of our bones.
Overall, these herbs have a warm and cooling effect on all three doshas. Maintaining a healthy balance between them supports optimal health and vitality.
