Indrāṇikā (इन्द्राणिका, “belonging to Indrāṇī (name for Indra’s wife)”) is a synonym for Sinduvāra, which is a Sanskrit name for a medicinal plant (either Vitex Negundo or Vitex trifolia). It is a technical term used throughout Ayurvedic literature such as the Caraka-saṃhitā and the Suśruta-saṃhitā. This synonym was identified by Amarasiṃha in his Amarakośa (a Sanskrit botanical thesaurus from the 4th century).
Āyurveda (आयुर्वेद, ayurveda) is a branch of Indian science dealing with medicine, herbalism, taxology, anatomy, surgery, alchemy and related topics. Traditional practice of Āyurveda in ancient India dates back to at least the first millenium BC. Literature is commonly written in Sanskrit using various poetic metres.
