Taijasadravya (तैजसद्रव्य) are those substances (dravya) related to Agni-mahābhūta obtained from the Taijasa type of “land” (kṣetra), as defined in the first chapter (ānūpādi-varga) of the 13th-century Raj Nighantu or Rājanighaṇṭu (an Ayurvedic encyclopedia). Accordingly, “taijasa-dravyas are of tikta (bitter), lavaṇa (salty) in taste and uṣṇa (hot) in nature. They increase appetite and remove aversion to food”.
