Product Description

Laksha is a substance used in Ayurveda since ancient times, especially in Vaidya Mishra's 5000 year old tradition of Ayurveda. It is not exactly an herb, but is created when the laccifer lacca (lac beetle) attaches to the branches of certain trees and draws out the sap to eat.

In Shaka Vansya Ayurveda laksha is used to bind and pacify reactive auto-immune toxins in the majja dhatu (bone marrow) and nervous tissues (snayu). Bone marrow and nerves are actually very closely related according to Ayurveda.

When toxins reach these very deep and important tissues in the body, they can cause injury to the nerves. The ulcers of multiple sclerosis on the myelin sheath of nerves are an example of this.

Another example is herpes (visarpa), which is understood by Ayurveda to be caused by toxins coming out of the bone marrow and subsequently getting infected by the herpes virus.

When laksha is used in Ayurveda, it is able to reach the hidden toxins in the nervous tissues and bone marrow by means of its tuvera (deeply penetrating) quality, and it is able to bind those toxins by means of its snigdha (sticky and slippery) quality.

Lakshaya Transdermal Cream Delivers Laksha Very Quickly

When laksha is used in powder form it must go through the usual process of digestion and metabolism. This is a somewhat slow process, especially if digestion is weak.

Vaidya Mishra's Lakshaya Transdermal Cream allows you to skip the digestive process completely, delivering the sukshma bhag (subtlest fraction) of the herb and the prabhavas (vibrational qualities) of laksha through the skin.

This is very useful when using laksha with a slow digestive or metabolic system, which is often the case today as a result of our modern lifestyle and diet.

When this transdermal cream is used, the vibration of laksha goes to the bone marrow and nerves to help bind toxins there, even if digestion is not good.

Laksha Is Good For Complexion (Varnya)

Bhava Prakash describes laksha as varnya (good for complexion). Vaidya Mishra explains that this is more for topical use, such as with this transdermal cream.

Though laksha may be applied topically, it penetrates into the deep tissues of the body (tuvera). By binding toxins in those deep tissues (especially bone marrow and nerves), laksha is able to increase the inner glow of the skin. When the deep tissues are healthy, it is reflected in the health of the skin.

Also, when majja dhatu (bone marrow) is healthy, it gives good raw material to make shukra dhatu, which in turn becomes good raw material to make ojas (the connecting factor of the body). When a lot of ojas is available in the body, the whole body glows with health. This glow is what the term varnya (good for complexion) refers to in Ayurveda.

Laksha In Our Herbal Products

Vaidya Mishra often calls laksha by the name lakshaya. The products below go by the name lakshaya.

Lakshaya Herbal Memory Nectar

  • Contains only the subtlest fraction (sukshma bhag) of laksha so that it can penetrate easily to the deep tissues of the body to reach the majja dhatu (bone marrow) and nerve tissue.
  • Travels quickly, without delay of digestion and begins acting right away.
  • Should be added to 1 to 2 liters of cool, neutral pH spring water and sipped throughout the day.

Lakshaya Powder

  • Can be used topically or as an infusion. Please consult with your Shaka Vansya Ayurveda practitioner before using.
  • If taken internally, laksha must be processed by the digestive system and metabolic system before reaching the targeted destination. This takes more time than the use of Lakshaya Herbal Memory Nectar and Lakshaya Transdermal Cream.
  • Delivers greater volume of the herb and its binding property to the affected area after digestion.
