What is Churna?
Churna is a herbal powder made from completely dry herbs, filtered through a thin, clean cloth. It is a medicinal powder used for various treatments.
The difference between churna and regular powder lies in the process: churna involves drying and grinding raw herbs, passing them through filters to obtain a fine powder. This powder is then mixed with other ingredients to prepare the final churna formulation.
The key principle is achieving a harmonious balance of the six tastes – sweet, sour, salty, bitter, pungent, and astringent – to stimulate the digestive fire effectively.
यः पिण्डो रसपिष्टानाम कल्कः स परिकीर्तितः|
कल्को द्रशदि पेषितः।
(अ. सं.. सू. ४)
Ayurvedic texts like Charaka Samhita and Sushruta Samhita offer detailed guidance on preparing and using churna for diverse health conditions. These texts serve as valuable references for Ayurvedic practitioners, assisting them in selecting and combining herbs to create specific churna formulations.
Homemade churan, a culinary tradition, is a cherished symbol of familial love and domesticity, shared and packed for loved ones who are venturing away from home.
Over time, we have gradually forgotten these natural blends and turned to tablets or medicines as alternatives.
