In developing countries like India people have a fast phase of life. As a result, injuries are common. Economically a huge amount is spent on wound management. In olden days substances derived from animals, minerals and plants were used as crewed remedies in the management of wounds. Haridra is used as a household remedies from time unknown. This study is aimed at introducing one such ethno-medicine Haridra into a Malahara form. Haridra was converted into a tropical Malahara form after extracting oil from it. This approach was done to make it more user friendly, so that its shelf life and acceptability among the people would be increased. Analytical study was carried out for the same. A homogenous consistency with a strong smell of siktha was noted. The colour obtained after was light yellowish in nature. The pH value was 7.4. Spreadability value was 172.23 – gm-cm/sec. The measurement of viscosity of the sample was done using Brookfield viscometer. It would be cost effective and with less complication hence various formulations need to be revived, tested and used in the treatment of wounds. Through this study an attempt has been made to convert a household drug into an acceptable form. The result of analytical study was found to be encouraging and it could be taken up for other studies.
