Tail Kalpana (Medicated Oil) is a pharmaceutical process. It comes under the Sneha Kalpana. It may be defined as a process where the various things like decoction, paste, milk and perfuming - substances are employed for the preparation of oleaginous medicaments (Oil and Ghee). This process ensures absorption of the active therapeutic properties of the ingredients used. The experimental test was done in laboratory, Department of Rasa Shastra & B.K., N.I.A., Jaipur and Oasis Lab., Jaipur by adopting S.O.P. and S.M.P. as laid down in the respective pharmacopeias. Physico – chemical properties of both the medicated oils and untreated oil were determined. The analysis includes as following- Specific gravity, Refractive Index, Loss on drying, Ash value, Acid Value, Saponification value, Ester value, Iodine Value, Unsaponifiable matter, thin layer chromatography and Spectrophotometry. The T.L.C. pattern of Unsaponifiable matters of medicated oils and base oil indicates the presence of active constituents. The absorption characteristic of the medicated oils and base oil were Studied as 0.08% v/v solutions of the oils in Cyclohexane were merely transparent in the visible region of the spectrum. The Spectra resembles those of Sesamin and Sesamolin, the lignan Substances of Sesame oil. So it’s concluded that medicated oils are better than base oil for their medicinal purpose.
