    Objective: There is an urgent need to prove the authenticity of Ayurvedic medicines in the light of modern scientific knowledge. Methods: The present study deals with the gas chromatography–mass spectrometry (GC–MS) analysis of one herbal oil, Kunthalakanti Thailam, to understand the molecules present there in. Kunthalakanti Thailam was bought from a standard Ayurvedic vendor from Chennai. It was processed and GC–MS analysis was done by standard procedures. Results: The GC–MS report indicated the presence of mostly fatty acids and their esters which have potent antioxidant and antiallerg ic properties such as N-Hexadecanoic acid, 2-Methyl-3-93-methyl-but-2-enyl)-enyl)-oxetane, 3, 7-decadien-2-one, and 10-(3,3-dimethoxyloxiran dimethyl-, (E, E)-, +/− which have medicinal activities which help in keeping the homeostasis of the scalp and maintain good health to hair follicles and hair. Some important biomolecules have medicinal properties supporting the validity of skin treatment with this oil. Conclusions: The presence of these biomolecules having medicinal properties supports the validity of Kunthalakanti Thailam as skin and hair health treatment.
