The term Netra Tharpanam is derived from the Sanskrit words ‘netra’ which means eye and ‘tharpanam’ which means rehydration. This therapy is done by forming a barrier/well using a herbal paste around the eye region. This barrier is then filled with medicinal ghrita or ghee. The ghee is prepared by warming it and adding herbs which are chosen according to the dosha of the patient. Other factors such as ailment to be treated can affect the nature of the herbs used in the medicinal mixture. The warm ghee is then poured into the barrier/well and allowed to sit. The patient will be asked to keep their eyes open and closed for periods of time. The ghee acts as a powerful cleanser for the eye, while also restoring moisture into the eyeball. It detoxifies the eyes and helps treat eye conditions. The ghee lubricates the eyeballs as well. It deeply penetrates the eyes and removes any dirt or effects of pollution. Netra Tharpanam can also help with mental conditions such as stress and anxiety. When done regularly, it helps maintain eye health.
