Abstract

Introduction: Bala Taila is one of the most popular oil preparations of Ayurveda which not only serves the purpose as curative but also plays role in preventive and promotive aspects. Materials And Method: Bala Taila was evaluated for pharmacognostic and pharmaceutical analysis. Results and Discussion: Pharmacognostic study showed the presence of contents such as simple trichome, pollen grain, rhomboidal crystals, annular and pitted vessels. Physico-chemical analysis showed that the loss on drying 0.735% w/w, Specific gravity 0.916g, Acid value 2.186, Saponification value 156.89, Iodine value 87.6 and Refractive index 1.4840. Conclusion: From the study, data developed can be espoused for laying down the standards of Bala Taila.
