Anjana Kriya Ayurvedic Eye Care | Applying Collyrium

Anjana Kriya (also called applying collyrium) is an Ayurvedic therapeutic treatment for various types of ophthalmic diseases, but it’s also recommended as a preventive measure against various eye disorders. It’s also thought that applying Anjana Kriya makes one’s vision clearer.

Anjana Kriya involves applying a medicated herbal paste or powder to the inner side of lower eyelid, either with the fingertips or with an eyeliner tool. In the ancient Ayurveda scriptures it was recommended as a daily regime, that is, part of the Dinacharya routine.
