The Sanskrit word rasona literally means Lacking one taste, as it contains all of the six tastes-except sour. Rasona is widely used as an important factor in food item. It has been also used as a medicine in India, China & middle east since ages. In Ayurvedic compendia, lahashuna is a drug very widely used in treating many diseases. In Charak Samhita, Lahshuna has been prescribed in different diseases with the combination of various drugs (C. S. Suo 27/ 176). In Ashtanga Hrudaya & in Ashtanga Samhita Lahashuna Acharya Vagbhata has prescribed it to be used as a Rasayana & also given some different mode of administration. Along with oral intake, he emphasized on garlanding & crowning with lahashuna to get the Rasayan effect. (A.S. U. 49/103-105, 108123, A.H.U.-39/115-129) In Sushruta Samhita also the drug is prescribed in Sutrasthan. (S.S. Su. 46/244-245). In Kashyapa Samhita a whole chapter is narrated with the Pharmaceutical preparation of Lahashuna, in kalpasthan. The Mythological story about the birth of Lahashuna is that when the drops of nectar fell down on the earth it got turned into Lahashuna. In another story the birth of lahashuna was meant for getting progeny. Both these stories reveal its significance.
