There’s an old South Indian saying: Why give your money to the doctor, when you can pay the oilman?
Of all the practices of Ayurveda, the daily use of oil is the most fundamental. The skin is the largest organ of the body, and the regular application of the properly medicated Ayurvedic oil, rejuvenates the tissue, increases the circulation of the whole body, induces sound sleep, stimulates the nervous system, improves the texture and complexion of the skin, and above all, leaves one with a general sense of well being.
The science of Ayurveda encompassed the knowledge of the skin being a transdermal delivery system. Heat, as well the penetrative quality of sesame oil, allowed for the medicinal effects of the herbs to be absorbed into the body. The continuous use allows the absorption of oil with medicinal properties to penetrate deeper, opening channels to carry the nutrients inside. And science tells us today that the medicinal herbs suspended in a fat soluble substance can penetrate the lipid based cell walls of the body. Ayurvedic oil therapy, developed both internally, as well as externally, turns out to take advantage of this principle of supplying valuable health nutrients at a cellular level.(Ayurveda, also states, the repeated use of its medicinal oil will penetrate to the deepest levels – the bones, the seat of the most vitiated and chronic type of Vata. Today, the Indian Government department of Ayurveda, Ayush, in cooperation with Vaidyaratnam, our supplier of oil, has scientifically documented observation and protocol in Ayurveda’s effective treatment of bone related diseases, like rheumatoid arthritis, which Modern Medicine has no prescribed treatment for.)
