Back ground: Skin diseases comprise a large proportion of patients approaching clinics and hospitals. Arka taila is an Ayurvedic preparation for kandu (itching), pama (scabies), vicharchika (eczema). It is mentioned in various classical books of Ayurveda like Sharangadhara samhita, vangasena samhita etc. Aim: To evaluate the pharmaceutical and analytical parameters of Arka taila prepared with two different ratios. Materials and methods: Arka Taila was prepared with two different ratios of Kalka dravyas. Snehapaka was subjected according to the rule of sneha kalpana when swarasa is a dravadravya i.e in ratio of 1/8th part Kalka (fine paste of haridra), 1 part of Katu taila (Mustard oil) and 4 parts of Arka patra swarasa to that of kalka. And a specified ratio of kalka as 1/4th part is mentioned in gudartha deepika is also considered in the present study. They were subjected to paka until the sneha siddha laksanas were obtained. After completion of taila paka they were subjected for organoleptic analysis as mentioned in CCRAS. Result: Pharmaceutically Sample A (1/8th kalka) has better yield; Analytical parameters like Refractive index, Saponification value, Acid value, Specific gravity and Viscosity has better values and more compliant than Sample B (1/4th kalka). Conclusion: Both Pharmaceutical and analytical study carried out on Arka taila with two different ratios has shown that Sample A (1/8th kalka) with more yield of the taila, and the analytical parameters like Refractive index, Saponification value, specific gravity shown better results in decreasing rancidity and increasing Stability compared to Sample B (1/4th kalka) This paper highlights the Pharmaceutico analytical study of Arka taila prepared in two different ratios.
