Shadbindu taila is a classical taila preparation prescribed for nasya (nasal instillation). It rids the body, especially the Uttamanga (Head), of Kapha-Pitta disorders and balances the tridoshas. This time tested taila is a well-crafted combination of tridoshahara herbs and roots in a rich base of sesame oil fortified with goat’s milk, that heals as well as nourishes.
