Abhyanga means applying something such as oil on the body and massaging.
Abhyanga snana means taking a bath after that.
Abhyanga is also called abhyanjana.
Abhyanga has got relevance both in Ayurveda and Hindu religion.
Ayurveda prescribes applying oil from head to toes and massaging on a regular basis.
If this is not possible, an oil massage should be done at least on the head, earlobes, and feet.
The smritis prescribe regular abhyanga snana except on some forbidden days.
Not taking abhyanga snana can deprive one of his health, longevity, wealth, and fortune.
In addition to oil, the smritis prescribe various other materials like mud, flowers, and durva grass.
In the religious context, abhyanga is meant to purify the body, mind, and atma.
