Ksheerabala oil is a simple but potent blend specially formulated to ease the nerves and soothe deep and chronic pain in the lower back and head. It is a decoction of Bala in black sesame oil and milk aimed at providing both relaxation and rejuvenation to the muscles and nerves.
Ksheerabala unites the grounding and sattvic qualities of black sesame oil with the nourishing and rejuvenating qualities of milk to deliver the potent stress-relieving power of Bala to deep-seated pain along the spine and in the head. Bala is a very powerful herb, so much so that it is not appropriate to be used on its own.
It is therefore blended with milk and sesame oil to both bring balance and enhancement to its potency, rendering ksheerabala oil a unique and simple yet powerful blend that has brought relief to many throughout the ages. The root of the Bala plant is squeezed and pressed to provide the juice that is used in Ksheerabala oil. Bala is a singularly powerful nervine which penetrates deep to the source of nerve and muscle pain by alleviating an aggravated pitta.
It has cooling and astringent effects which work to reduce pain and inflammation by first cooling and then eliminating toxins accumulated as a result of agitation. This works well to relieve burning in the skin and with conditions such as fibromyalgia and multiple sclerosis, wherein due to prolonged stress the hyperactive metabolic enzymes begin to corrode the nerve linings and eventually the nerves themselves. This results in severe burning or aching pain in the nerves which can have potentially very serious implications.
Bala is very effective in cooling the overactive pitta which is the cause of such problems, providing both symptomatic relief and treating the cause of the condition. Bala is first decocted in milk to augment its cooling effects, which provides balance to the dry detoxification of Bala with the highly nutritive and rejuvenating qualities of milk. Milk is cooling and sweet in its effects.
While the cooling effect of milk augments that of Bala providing additional relief of inflammation and swelling, its sweetness which is nourishing and moist offers balance to the dry and constricting effects of Bala’s astringency. In addition, milk delivers accompanying herbs to the plasma and the blood, rendering it a great vehicle for Bala’s treatment of pitta. Furthermore, milk is soothing to the mucous membranes and softening to the skin. These complementary qualities render milk a particularly suitable partner for external application.
Sesame oil is regarded as the most sattvic oil and is well suited as the final partner in this trio. By contrast, sesame oil is heating in effect. This brings balance to the cooling natures of both Bala and milk and gives the blend well-rounded potency which allows it to provide additional and otherwise latent benefits. Sesame oil is also sweet and highly nourishing to the body.
The combination of the warming effect brings comfort to the joints and muscles while its sweetness augments the nutritive effects already present in the milk. This widens and deepens the range of relief of this blend, making it effective for treating arthritic and rheumatic pain as well as nervous disorders. Further, the cornucopia of vitamins and minerals present in sesame oil give a very grounding effect on the often erratic vata.
This helps to calm and clarify the mind and restore it with a sense of unity. This triad is a balance of penetrating and relieving power in a stable and supportive medium. This singular combination renders it both potent and safe, whether for occasional or long term use. It is particularly effective in treating lower back pain as found with sciatica or nervo-muscular pain as found in chronic migraines. It treats the symptoms and the causes by both relaxing the muscles and calming the nerves and the blood.
However, this well-balanced concoction is useful also for a wide range of conditions including arthritis, rheumatism, general joint pain, burning of the skin and nerves, insomnia and nervousness. It is both deeply healing and toning and softening of the skin, and a great oil for any deep tissue healing massage.
