Fomentation for Pains

Gingilly oil, Coconut oil, Castor oil, Neem oil and Ghee in equal quantities. Mix together and boil in an iron pan. When hot, fry 10 Ekka leaves like Papad. This oil can be applied for pains and Vatha swellings.

Take leaves of Tamarind, Dhathura, Ekka and Dill (Sadhaguppai in Tamil). Powder together and add roasted coconut scrapings. Make a bag out of this.

Method: Apply the five oils mixture first. After 20 minutes, dip this bag in the oil mix and heat on a Tava and give fomentation.
This should be done for 10 to 15 days.
