«SQ»Basti«SQ» is compared with conventional enema due to its similarity in procedure of administration. But in effect enema is a simple evacuation technique, whereas «SQ»Basti«SQ» is a therapeutic measure considered as «SQ»Ardha Chikitsa«SQ» i.e half therapy in the disease management. Constitution of «SQ»Basti dravya«SQ» formulation specifically «SQ»Aasthaapana Basti«SQ» has a direct impact on the end result of «SQ»Basti«SQ» therapy. A systematic stepwise procedure of preparation of «SQ»Aasthaapana Basti«SQ» is described in Ayurvedic Classics. The present study evaluates the significance of this procedure through standardization of «SQ»Maadhutailika Basti«SQ», a type and standard of «SQ»Aasthaapana Basti«SQ». Four samples of «SQ»Aasthaapana Basti«SQ» including the classical one were prepared for this study by replacement, exclusion and supplementation of honey in the formulation. A comparative study of physico-chemical characteristics of these samples was carried out. The stability of the constitution of «SQ»Maadhutailika Basti«SQ» was also studied to assess the role of honey as a natural emulsifying agent. The study underlines the significance of the procedure described in the classics emphasizing the role of honey as a natural emulsifying agent in standardization of «SQ»Maadhutailika Basti«SQ».
