Amṛtādikvātha (अमृतादिक्वाथ) is a medicinal formulation (of the kvātha type, ‘decoction’), according to the Ṣoḍaśāṅgahṛdayam (Āyurvedic medicinal work in Sanskrit). The following ingredients should be taken in equal part: Guḍūcī, Dhānyaka, Nimba, Raktacandana and Padmaka. The Amṛtādi decoction is administered when the following symptoms are indicated:—Fever (jvara), disorders of kapha and pitta and loss of appetite.

The recipe should be prepared according to the Kvātha (‘liquid decoction’) process. Using this Āyurvedic preparation means you have to boil the herbs in water without a lid till at least three-fourth parts of water is evaporated.
