Purified butter, or ghee, has been used in India since ancient times for its medicinal properties, and in rituals.
This is the essence of butter once all the impurities of the milk have been eliminated through slow cooking. It is not necessary to store it in the fridge, and as it ages it also increases its healing powers.
Because of the cooking process, ghee becomes one of the most sattvic (intelligent) foods that we can have. It has the quality of penetrating deeply into the tissues to transport medicinal substances. It promotes intelligence, lubricates the connective tissues and promotes the digestion and assimilation of food.
Especially indicated to reduce Pitta imbalances, all other constitutions can benefit from its consumption.
Externally, it can be used to soothe and nurture the skin, heal burns and irritations… and in oil lamps, because when we inhale it our prana or life force increases, and our intellect as well.
