Put one tablespoon of Agnihotra ash into one litre of water.
Now take a piece of cloth, gauze or cotton and soak it with this Agnihotra ash water and place it on the affected area of the body.
Place a terry towel on top in order to catch excessive moisture, and leave the Agnihotra compress on for 10-15 minutes.
Then repeat the process again.
Agnihotra compresses can be applied with cold water for a cooling effect on such problems as sprained ankle, headache, calf-wrap for fever, neck wrap for sore throat, angina, contusions and sport injuries etc.
It can also be used with hot water (as hot as is comfortable) when warmth is needed e.g. liver and gall bladder problems, back pains, heart troubles, etc.
