Nābhasadravya (नाभसद्रव्य) are those substances (dravya) related to Ākāśa-mahābhūta obtained from the Āntarikṣa type of “land” (kṣetra), as defined in the first chapter (ānūpādi-varga) of the 13th-century Raj Nighantu or Rājanighaṇṭu (an Ayurvedic encyclopedia). Accordingly, “nābhasa-dravyas are cold and hot. Amla (acidic) or feeble in nature”.
