Ghee is extensively used in medicinal preparations because of its unique ability to assimilate the properties of herbs it is melded with, without giving down its therapeutic qualities.

For instance, if ghee gets blended with an herb, it hardly lets go its typical oily, therapeutic nature.  Ayurveda considers honey to be the best in this regard, but honey cannot be heated.

Therefore wherever Ayurveda preparations require heating, ghee is favored as the best ingredient.

The daily doses of ghee have the capability to melt the toxins soluble in lipid and expel them to the alimentary tract for purging by purification procedures. With recurring contaminated inner and outer environment, Ayurveda offers a unique way to remove these harmful fat soluble substances.


This potential but harmless way to detox the body merits further research. Some of the Ayurvedic remedies by ghee :

  • Take milk and ghee at bedtime to reduce the irritation of irregular bowel movement.
