Veṭṭa (वेट्ट) is a Sanskrit name referring to one of the two varieties of Candana, or Santalum album (Indian sandalwood). This variety was identified by Narahari in his 13th-century Rājanighaṇṭu (verses 12.6-8), which is an Āyurvedic medicinal thesaurus.
The fresh and moist Candana when cut and dried is called Veṭṭa (The other variety is called Sukkaḍi). The mountains around the Malaya are named Veṭṭa, hence the Candana growing over there is also named Veṭṭa. The Veṭṭa-candana is very cooling and quells burning sensations and pitta. It alleviates fevers and is indicated in vomiting, stupor, thirst, leprosy and allied skin diseases, opacities of lens (cateract), coughing, and in blood disorders. It is bitter in taste.
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.
