Ksheerabala is a marvelous oil with a ”toasty’ fragrance. It is similar to Mahanaryana, but more cooling. It is used for vata conditions affecting the nervous system* At Tri Health Ayurveda we use it in our spa for shirodhara.
Only containing three ingredients, this ancient magical formula from the Ayurvedic text Sahasrayogam includes cow milk (ksheera), black sesame (taila) and bala – sida retusa (teaweed). All oils penetrate into the cells via lipid delivery.
“Most human ailments are due to vata provocation, Tailas control is best, and none better than Ksheerabala. The more this is repeated in preparation, the more effective. Can be used internally (101 and 3), externally on head and body, and for Dhara, Pichu and Vasti; and Nasya, as additive in Kashayas in all vata ailments, especially in snehapana procedure and for Gudvasti. This is reputed for internal use in Bahyayama, Antharayama, etc. In short this is the recourse in any ailment connected with Vata. Pathya (lifestyle) light*.
