How to use Rasnadi Churnam – A Video Guide

Rasnadi Churnam is a wonder ayurvedic formulation that can help prevent mucous build up and heaviness in the head due to Kapha aggravation. What is it and how can we use it effectively? This short blog post and video will explain more about this product.

Fear of catching cold with regular Hair oiling:

One of the fears that people have when we recommend regular hair oiling for good hair growth and many other benefits, is the fear of catching a cold. As Ayurvedic science tells us to formulate hair oils with Madhura rasa dravyas , Medhya enhancing herbs and ensure that the oil balances Pitta and Vata dosha, this combination can sometimes aggravate Kapha dosha. This is usually tolerated well by normal healthy people. But for those with high kapha aggravation or an existing sinusitis problem, this is a very real worry.

The answer?

Rasnadi Churnam: to prevent Kapha build up in the scalp

Rasnadi Churnam is a safe , effective ayurvedic chooranam (powder) that retains warmth in the head, prevents mucous formation and helps clear blocked sinuses with regular use, safely and effectively. It balances Vata and Kapha in the body, and can also be used as a warm Lepa / Pack in cases of muscular spasm, tennis elbow, rheumatism, etc.

Rasnadi Churnam is a classical ayurvedic formulation that has many uses. It can also be effectively used to control headaches, especially headaches associated with mucous build up in the head / sinusitis. For Pitta based migraine headaches, Rasnadi churnam can be applied as a paste on the forehead with warm water / milk . Leave the pack on for 10 minutes and then have a bath. For Pitta based migraine type headaches, Kachuradhi choornam is also a very good option to use.

For external application in small amounts to prevent mucous build up after bath / head oiling, Rasnadi Churnam is safe even to be used for small infants. Kachuradhi choornam is also a good option for infants and children below 2 as it is much milder.

For inhalation with Rasnadi churnam, we recommend that it be done only for 5 years and above. As a precautionary measure, pregnant women should NOT inhale Rasnadi Churnam – they can apply it on the scalp as demonstrated in the video.

  1. Maam loved the video. I’ve been using the churnam but the powder settles on my scalp and sometimes when I scratch my scalp I get black stuff (the choornam which has dried) under my nails. It looks like I have an uneven scalp.

  2. Can an epileptic use this churna

    1. Hi Anupama: Yes I think so. The herbs used are more for kapha control and should not cause any reaction. But to be sure, please check with your vaidya.

  3. Can I use the application for my 8 months old baby? She’s suffering with severe cold often.

    1. Yes, you can apply a small pinch of Rasanadi Choornam ( only external application) on baby’s scalp , especially on the crown of the head and a little on the back of the neck as well

      1. Can i use rasnadi choornam for my 4 month old child?

        1. Yes, you may. Use much smaller quantity – barely a few grains in each spot

    2. Janani: yes you can apply it on her head alone.

      For frequent colds, and for general immunity, I suggest applying finely ground powder of Vacha / Vasambu / acorus calamus, everyday on the chest region after a bath (and after baby is dried). This is a good Ayurvedic practice.

  4. Hi my kid is 7yrs old and having nose bleeding since after one yr he born he has loud snoariing n mucus always ther in the noseand bleeding is not normal frequently voice pitch

    1. Hi,
      This needs vaidya examination and diagnosis – please take your son for consultation to a good ayurvedic vaidya asap.

  5. I have wrongly taken the rasanadhi chooran with honey. Does it give any reaction to my health.

    1. Do you mean that you internally consumed it with honey? It is better to meet an Ayurvedic vaidya and get their opinion.

  6. I am taking mahasudarshan churna for cough ,fever and cold I need to add something on it for better result please suggest me and I am suffering form veins pain in now days feeling so weak immunity is very weak please suggest me some ayurvedic churna that I can take with this .

    1. Please consult an ayurvedic vaidya for this.

  7. How should we use rasnadi choornam dor leg pain or arthritis

    1. Rituparna: Here we have only discussed use of rasanadi choornam is to clear mucous from the head region . For any other uses, it is more advisable to meet a vaidya.

  8. Is it to be applied when hair is still wet immediately after wash?

    1. It is not to be applied immediately after wash when the hair is dripping wet. First towel the hair to at least a semi-dry level & then apply the Rasandi Churna. It also helps the further drying up of the scalp. After applying the churna then you towel-dry the hair more thoroughly

  9. Can this be used by pregnant ladies

    1. Yes, Rasnadi Choornam is safe for external application on the scalp during pregnancy
