Dhanwantharam Kuzhambu is an Ayurvedic oil for stretch marks and an Ayurvedic medicine for backache for expecting and new mothers.
It is often recommended as a pregnancy massage oil because it provides relief from pain and fatigue while also boosting the overall energy and immunity of the expecting mother.
Dhanwantharam Kuzhambu is said to help strengthen the muscles and make them strong enough to hold the foetus, which later helps in facilitating childbirth. When used as an oil massage during pregnancy, the sesame oil content keeps skin dehydrated and keeps flakiness at bay, improving skin elasticity and preventing stretch marks.
Dhanwantharam Kuzhambu pacifies Vata Dosha and is also found to be useful in the treatment of paralysis, hemiplegia, quadriplegia and physical weakness. Its massage helps provide strength to the muscles, ligaments, tendons and skin. Dhanwantharam Kuzhambu uses also include pain relief, and it is one of the prescriptions for relieving stiffness, and inflammation of the joints.
Sesame Oil: Right from improving the hair and skin health to helping in proper development and growth of bones, sesame oil is said to have many medicinal benefits.
Castor Oil: Castor oil is derived from castor seeds which contain very high concentrations of a special fatty acid called ricinoleic acid, thought to underlie its healing properties which makes it very effective during and post pregnancy.
Apart from these two very common and highly reliable oils, Dhanwantaram Kuzhambu also contains Cow’s Ghee (clarified butter), cow’s milk and Sida Cordifolia.
Elaichi, Dalchini, Tez Patta, Amla, Ashwagandha and Shatavari are a few of the herbs and spices that are also added to make Dhanwantharam Kuzhambu.
