त्रिफलामृतवल्ली च केतक्यसनकोबलां। एरंडमिंद्रवाली च जलद्रोणे विपाचयेत् ॥

रसेन तेकराजस्य हठस्य स्वरसेन च। तैलप्रस्थं पचेद्धीमान द्विगुणक्षीरसंयुतं ।।

कल्कं च कुष्ठयष्ट्याह्नपद्मकोशीरचंदनैः। मुस्तैलापत्रमांसी च हयगंधा बलामृता ।।

सारिवामरकाष्ठं च लवंगनतचोरकाः। उत्पलायंजने नीलीश्शलष्णपिष्टान् समावपेत् ।।

शिरोरोगप्रतिश्यायौ विशेषेण विनाशयेत्।खालित्यं चैव पालित्यं केशानां भंजनं तथा ।

त्रिफलाद्यमिदं तैलं कध्वजत्रुगदापहम् ।





त्रिफलाऽतिविषामूत्रिवृच्चित्रकवासकैः । निम्बारग्वधषड़ग्रन्थासप्तपर्णनिशाद्वयैः ।। ४७।।
