Regular oiling scalp and hair have always proven to be fruitful. We often hear our mother or grandmother suggest an oil massage in order to relieve stress. Sirobasti is one of the most effective treatments in Ayurveda. Sirobasti is performed by placing leather sleeve or cap on an individual’s head. A lukewarm medicated oil is poured in leather sleeve or cap and is left for some time.
Sirobasti has proven to be beneficial in case of insomnia, stress, depression, facial paralysis, and excessive hair loss. The process lubricates the individual’s throat and nostrils and effectively treats the brain related diseases and neurological diseases.
