The Magic of Ghee

Learn 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?

Let me know your thoughts. Namaste <3

Ayurvedic Counseling

Ayurveda in Sanskrit is “Life knowledge/wisdom.” Ayurveda has been a healing practice for over 5,000 years. It is one of the first health care systems known to man. Ayurveda helps us to understand the qualities of the seasons, time of life and time of day we are living in. Throughout these cycles the body also fluctuates and knowing these cycles can help bring harmony and balance back into ones life.

During a session, we will find your Prakruti (birth constitution), Vikruti (the imbalance your body may be experiencing at this moment in time), teaching you how to understand the signs and symptoms the body releases everyday and how to work with these signs and symptoms for everyday health and wellness.

Sound Treatments

Do you notice the subtle sounds birds make when chirping or singing? The crickets in the evening when the sun makes its way to the other side of the earth? Feeling like you want to jump up and dance when your favorite tune comes on? As vibrational beings we naturally react to the stimulation within and around our environment. Sound healing instruments can be identified as crystal singing bowls, native american drums, animals in nature, crashes of the ocean and the tones we make with our vocal cords.

Within a sound healing session, we create a personalized healing space to help release restriction and tension within the body and cleanse the aura (energy)field. The session will beginning with setting an intention, breathing techniques to connect with the body, pendulum testing the chakras, and ending with 50 minutes completely immersed in sound. Once the session is complete you will feel deeply relaxed and should have a great nights sleep.

Massage Therapy

The benefits of massage therapy increase significantly when on a monthly regiment. Consistent treatments help to move lymph, plasma and blood around the body which increases immunity, decreases inflammation and may help with insomnia-like patterns. Massage is known to help relax one's mind, improves flexibility, and reduces stress. We all live in a world that is very fast paced and massage reminds us to take a step back, slow down and enjoy the moment.
