Karpooradi Thailam (Karpooradi oil) contains tree camphor, which is considered to be an excellent healer gifted by nature. Since ages, camphor is known for its medicinal properties, and is also used during religious rituals in India.
Karpooradi Thailam is effective in treating vata dosha, healing injuries, and to improve circulation by clearing blockages, if any. It also acts as a good relaxant and regularizes breathing by breaking down excessive kapha (mucus-build up) in the chest, thereby relieving respiratory congestion. It is also useful when dealing with cramps, pain, numbness and swelling in the body.
Karpooradi thailam regulates body temperature, driving away any sort of sluggishness. It soothes muscles and nerves and relaxes the body, in general. Karpooradi thailam also helps relieve neck pain, arthritis, frozen shoulder, knee pain and swelling.
As for method of application, just as with any other massage oil, warm the oil and apply on the affected area and follow-up with hot fomentation.
