Sitaram Lakshadi soap infuses the therapeutic goodness of Lakshadi taila in a mild soap base. Authentically mentioned in the context of Balachikitsa or Pediatrics, in Ashtanga Hrdaya, Lakshadi taila soothes and strengthens the body and mind, and is beneficial in regaining health and vigor in convalescents. It is also hailed for its distinct varnya properties (improves skin tone and complexion).
‘Laksha’, the processed form of the reddish-brown resin secreted by the female lac insect, is hailed by Ayurvedic Physicians for its superlative ‘pittasamana’ – pacification of heat and viscidity of Pitta, and ‘balya’ – strengthening properties. Aggravated pitta manifests as inflammatory changes in the body. Regular application of the taila balances the tridoshas in the system and pacifies aggravated ‘Pitta’ dosha in the body.
