Mahanarayan is a traditional Ayurvedic herbal oil made from numerous Ayurvedic herbs and is used for joint pain and weakness including joint pain, arthritis, backache, headache, rheumatic pain, sciatica, gout, soothing breathing problems and lung congestion, and enhancing sexual desire.
For centuries, Mahanarayan Oil has been used in Ayurvedic medicine for vata balancing. In Ayurveda, vata controls the breathing, the eyelids, and muscle and tissue movement throughout the whole body, heart pulsation, the movements of cytoplasm and the cell membranes, and single impulses in the nerve cells. Vata controls nervousness, fear, anxiety, pain, tremors, and spasms. It responds to touch. If the body develops an excess of vata it causes an imbalance in emotions and can cause pain and tension throughout the body.
