A wide-mouthed earthen vessel with a hole in the bottom is suspended by means of suitable cords either from the roof of the room or other supports so that the end of the fiber wick hanging from its bottom will be about two inches above from the forehead of the patient.

The specially chosen liquid is then poured into the vessel and is made to flow in a stream on to the upper part of the forehead. The drippings collected from the basin are poured back into the vessel and then this process continues for one and a half hour.
