It is more prone to an infection that is why it requires wound care and maintenance. Episiotomy can be compared to Chhina Vrana (a kind of Sadhyo Vrana). Durvadi tail a have been mentioned in Yogratnakar as vrana ropak in the treatment of Sadhyo vrana. Aim: Clinical evaluation of the effect of doorvadi taila on wound healing. Method: A total of 61 women for whom episiotomy was given during normal vaginal delivery were randomly selected in a single group. Prakshalan of wound with patol nimbh patra kwath was done followed by local application of doorvadi tail on episiotomy twice a day. Assessment of patients was done on 3rd, 5th and 7th day postpartum on the basis of REEDA scale. Followup of patient was done after two weeks. Result: The study gave significant results. Overall 84.44% patients showed excellent healing, 13.33% showed marked healing and 2.2% showed moderate healing. Conclusion: Durvadi taila was found effective in preventing wound from getting infected and thus promoting wound to heal properly hence can be prescribed as a local healing agent.
