Background: Murchana is a specific procedure mentioned in classical texts to remove Ama Dosha increase therapeutic properties and shelf life of Taila. The effect of Murchana Sanskara was studied by preparing two samples of Ark Taila one with Murchana Sanskara and other without Murchana Sanskara. Material and Methods: Pharmaceutical preparation of two samples of Taila, Murchita Ark Taila samples was prepared as mentioned in Bhaishajya Ratnavali and two samples were subjected for physico-chemical parameters- specific gravity, saponification value, iodine value, acid value, viscosity, etc. Result & Conclusion: Murchana process imparts changes in good colour, odour in Taila. After Murchana Sanskara there were increase in saponification value and decrease in viscosity, acid, iodine and peroxide value. Murchana Sanskara enhanced the properties and stability of Ark Taila.
