Abstract

Background: Sneha Kalpana is a formulation that is highly used in the Ayurvedic fraternity as it incorporates both water
and lipid soluble active constituents of the medicine. Widely acclaimed for its therapeutic efficacy, Sneha Kalpanas have
made an irreplaceable niche in the treatment of the patients. Murchhana Sanskara is an ancillary procedure of Sneha Paka
that had been added in the Ayurvedic text Bhaisajya Ratnavali. The text started the trend of emphasising the Sneha
Murchhana Sanskara which is supposed to remove unwanted products or Doshas in the crude Sneha. Aim: The current
attempt is aimed to compile such works done with Sneha Murchhana and to establish the rationale behind Murchhana
Sanskara. Materials and Methods: The studies that included analytical and clinical studies of Murchhana Sanskara of
Sneha in comparison with Amurchhita Sneha were included in the current work. The works included were collected from
IPGT&RA and those available in the journals from internet. Results: In all the studies, the results showed that Murchhana
Sanskara helped in changing analytical parameters which finally helped in increasing the stability and efficacy of the
formulations. Conclusion: On the basis of observations and results, it can be concluded that Sneha Murchhana has a
positive impact and should be considered an integral part of Sneha Paka.
