Ghee is a type of clarified butter originating in ancient India. It’s widely used in Indian cuisine, in Ayurvedic Medicine, and in religious rituals.

Traditionally, Ghee is made from cow milk, as cows are considered sacred in India. Nevertheless, Ghee can also be made from buffalo, goat, sheep, camel, elephant, or mare milk, and even of milk from women.

Ghee in Abhyanga Massage is typically used to balance Pitta and Vata Doshas. Although in essence Tridoshic, it can increase Kapha Dosha when used in excess. Ghee is generally considered beneficial for the entire body.
