Wounds have been described in Ayurveda as Vrana. Almost all kinds of wounds have been described, including traumatic ones . The doshic involvement in Vrana is usually tridoshaja. However, the involvement of doshas varies with the stage of Vrana. For example, if pain is a characterizing symptom, involvement is of Vata. If the Vrana is in advanced stage, the involvement of Pitta is predominant. When the infection leads to pus formation, the involvement of Kapha is noted. The recipes mentioned are for minor wounds. For serious wounds and if the healing is not proper consult your doctor immediately and take appropriate treatments.

Ingredients for Wounds


The curcumin found in turmeric can help wounds heal by decreasing inflammation and oxidation. It also lowers the response of your body to cutaneous wounds. This results in your wounds healing more quickly.

Common Recipes:

Application of turmeric paste or even turmeric powder over the affected area provides help since turmeric is known to contain antibacterial principles.

A piece of raw turmeric (unpowdered) or alternatively, a teaspoonful of it boiled in a glass of milk taken internally offers relief from pain associated with wounds.
