Kalyanaka Ghrita (KG) is a polyherbal-medicated Ghrita that is in practice since Vedic times in the traditional system of Indian medicine. Recently, KG was enlisted under the National List of Essential Ayush Medicines, published by the Ministry of Ayush, Government of India, January 2022. Hence, the question always strikes the mind to perceive the historical evolution of KG from the Vedic period to recent times. An extensive literature survey was conducted to search the references of KG in the available Ayurvedic databases to analyze the difference in their herbal ingredients, dose, and therapeutic indications. Total 16 formulations were identified under the name of KG in authoritative textbooks of Ayurveda, with surprisingly similar herbal ingredients and numerous therapeutic indications.
