ABSTRACT

Background: Malhar kalpana is classified under Bahya kalpana(external application). Malhar word has been derived from the words ‘Malham’ or ‘Marham’ which are Unani in their origin. Malhar kalpana was described by Yogratnakar for the very first time in Ayurved. Malhar means the one which removes mala ie. debris or dead cells and dirt from the skin. They are similar to the ointments and creams in modern pharmaceutics. Rasapushpa is a nirgandha kalpana of Parad and its malhar which was firstly mentioned in Rasatarangini is indicated in eczema occurring around anus and wounds caused due to syphilis. Materials and Methods: After authentication of the raw materials, Rasapushpa a nirgandha kupipakva kalpana of parad was prepared in 2 batches followed by the malhar preparation using sikta tail by Rasatarangini reference.
