Ayurvedic Herbal Ghee = Kalka (Herb) + Gritha (A2 Desi Cow Ghee) + Drava (Herbal Kashaya)
The nourishing quality of A2 desi cow ghee is intensified when it is infused with herbs that are also nourishing, and likewise, the nutritive effects of the herbs are increased when ghee is used as a carrier. In this way, there is cooperative energy (synergy) between the herbs and ghee, with the great characteristics of each being increased.
Most importantly, ghee makes herbs progressively bioavailable. Ultimately, herbs become increasingly concentrated when mixed in ghee!
Charaka Samhita, an ancient Ayurvedic text, was written around 800 BC. According to this text, ghee has the following two very important qualities,
Ghee has the ability to augment the effect of any herb added to it. Ghee also helps transport the healing and health-promoting qualities of the herbs to the body.
When ghee is processed with herbs, it does not lose its own qualities while imbibing the attributes of the herbs added to it.
A2 Desi Cow Ghee is tridoshic, implying that it balances out the three doshas (vata, pitta and kapha) in your constitution without making an unsettling influence on the doshas. With its feeding impacts and ability to carry herbs deep into the bodily tissues, by and large, ghee is the perfect vehicle for taking herbs. Herbal ghee, called Siddha Ghritam, is one of the main types of herbal preparations in Ayurveda.
