Introduction: Chakradatta by Acharya Chakrapani is the classic which has described Aragvadhadi Taila in the context of Kustha Roga and indicated it in Shvitra Roga, the example of Sneha Kalpana (medicated oleaginous dosage form). Materials and Methods: Classical Sidhdhi Lakshana (chief desired characteristics) have their certain limitations and are not sufficient to characterize with respect to their organoleptic characters. Thus, in this study three batches of Aragvadhadi Taila with an average 2L of Sarshapa Taila (mustard oil), 8L of Gomutra (drava dravya) and 657g of Kalka were prepared by the following processes: Manahshila Shodhana, Haratala Shodhana, preparation of Kalka, and Snehapaka with classical method to maintain process uniformity and to evaluate standard procedure. The pharmaceutical and analytical data were observed and recorded. Results: Average total duration for Taila Paka and yield for each batch of Aragvadhadi Taila were observed to be approximately 8h 15min and 1675 mL, respectively, in 5 days. Average values of physicochemical parameters of Sarshapa Taila (mustard oil) were as follows: specific gravity 0.90, refractive index 1.4860, acid value 5.34, saponification value 288, and iodine value 102 at room temperature. Average values of physicochemical parameters of Aragvadhadi Taila were as follows: specific gravity 0.9115, refractive index 1.4871, acid value 7.12, saponification value 316, and iodine value 124.66 at room temperature. Conclusion: The pharmaceutical and analytical studies have helped to generate preliminary standards for formulation Aragvadhadi Taila.
