How Tarpana Works?

Tarpana works by delivering the therapeutic effects of the medicated ghee or oil directly to the eyes through a well-sealed poultice. The warmth of the ghee or oil helps to open up the pores and channels in the eyes and allows the medicine to penetrate deep into the tissues. The ghee or oil also lubricates and moisturizes the eyes and prevents them from drying out. The herbs in the ghee or oil have specific actions on different aspects of eye health, such as improving blood circulation, reducing inflammation, enhancing nerve function, removing toxins, etc. By doing so, tarpana can improve the clarity and focus of the vision.
