Ghee is an ancient and sattvic food, highly recommended in Ayurveda for its nourishing qualities and ability to bring the nutrients of food and herbs deeper into your tissues. Ghee is ideal for cooking, as it does not burn unless heated excessively, and for medicinal purposes, which is why we use it for our health enhancing ghrta. Ghee is tri-doshic, meaning it is healing for all doshas (though people with excess kapha should use small amounts) and is not congestive like butter.
