Tailābhyaṅga (तैलाभ्यङ्ग) or Abhyaṅgasnāna refers to an “oil bath”, according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.1.13, while explaining the mode of worshipping Śiva:—“[...] oil bath (tailābhyaṅga) shall be taken on particular days of the week according to convention in the society. If one is accustomed to take oil bath everyday or if one is using scented oil breaking the convention, it is not faulty. Otherwise one should avoid Śrāddha days, days of eclipse (grahaṇa), fast days (upavāsa-dina) and the first day of the lunar fortnight (pratipad) for oil baths. Except on the days of eclipse mustard oil (sarṣapa-taila) can be used on other days”.
The Purana (पुराण, purāṇas) refers to Sanskrit literature preserving ancient India’s vast cultural history, including historical legends, religious ceremonies, various arts and sciences. The eighteen mahapuranas total over 400,000 shlokas (metrical couplets) and date to at least several centuries BCE.
