Shankh Bhasma (Method 1)




Shudh (purified) Shank is pounded to form fine pieces. Shank pieces are blended with Kumaari juice and rolled into a cake. The cake on drying is given a Gajput (refer glossary) to obtain white-coloured Shank Bhasma with a soft butter-like appearance. If after 1st Gajput the Bhasma obtained does not give white-appearance then it must be further processed with fresh lime juice and again given a Gajput. Generally 1-2 Gajput with fresh lime treatment give the optimum Shankh Bhasma
