The Magic of GheeLearn Aryuveda | Self Care
Have you ever heard of ghee?
In short, ghee is melted, boiled down clarified butter from a cow.
Ghee can be used in a numerous of ways. The first time I started using ghee was as an alternative to olive oil. When cooking, it’s good to change up the oils and spices with your meals. Sticking with the same food; the body acclimates resulting in inefficient distribution of nutrition. Ghee can help to lubricate the internal organs while it is digesting in the body.
Not just for cooking, ghee can also be warmed up and used as a massage oil. Warming it up for just a few moments on the stove can be a nice lubricant for the skin before stepping into cooler weather. Ghee can also be taken with warm water in the morning upon waking to help with signs of discomfort in the digestive tract.
I’ve been experiencing constipation almost my whole life. I first started cooking with ghee to introduce it into my body. After a few days of using ghee to cook with, I started to notice my body felt lighter and felt like I had more fluidity within my body. Ghee was not enough to solve my problems, but it certainly assisted in my healing process.
I challenge you to try some ghee and cook with it for about a week. Explore the taste and make sure its organically sourced from grass fed cows! I cannot express how important this detail is because cows that eat grain CANNOT digest the food properly. Then think about it, consuming product from an animal that can’t even digest the food it’s eating, how can we expect to digest the cows product WE are eating?
