Majuphal is formed on the leaves of the Oaktree and is known as oak galls. There are generally two types of Majuphala white gall Majuphala and green gall Majuphala.
Majuphal is useful in wound healing due to its antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. It reduces the risk of skin infection due to its antibacterial property. It also has an astringent property that constricts the skin cells or tissues and helps in skin tightening.
As per Ayurveda, gargling with Majuphal decoction reduces inflammation of the throat and manages tonsillitis. It also prevents bleeding in the gums and gives a cooling and soothing effect due to its Kashaya (astringent) and Sita (cold) properties.
Majuphal might be used in certain vaginal problems as candida infections due to its antifungal property. Taking Majuphal powder along with lukewarm water helps manage the symptoms of leucorrhea due to its Kashaya (astringent) property.
