Guduchi (Tinospora cordifolia (willd) Miers.), is a well-known herbal drug used as a potent Rasayana (rejuvenating), Raktashodhaka (blood purifier), Kushthaghna (drug for skin diseases), Medhya (brain tonic) and Tridoshahara (pacify the three aggravated Doshas) drug in different dosage forms. Guduchi taila and Guduchi ghrita are examples of Sneha kalpana (Oleagenous formulations) described for the treatment of Kushtha roga (skin diseases) by Acharya Chakradatta. Thus in this study both Guduchi taila and Guduchi ghrita were prepared by utilizing Guduchi kalka, Guduchi kwatha and Go-dugdha along with Murchhita tila taila and Murchhita go-ghrita. All the samples were analyzed on various organoleptic, physicochemical and phytochemical parameters for developing the standards for the formulations. Total eight samples of Guduchi taila and five samples of Guduchi ghrita were prepared by following classical method to maintain process uniformity and to validate the standard procedure. Thin Layer Chromatography profile of the test formulations were also carried out to establish the chromatographic profile for the same. Thin Layer Chromatography study shows more number of spots in Guduchi taila in comparison to Ghrita preparation.
