The heat and humidity of summer can be quite a drastic change from winter and spring. Heat spreads rather quickly in our body and can make us feel drained and on edge. Stay balanced throughout this season with the cooling and calming ingredients in this complete bundle.
Included in this bundle are five products: Ayurvedic Cultured Ghee (8 oz), Pitta Khichari, Pitta Masala, DGL Powder, Rose Petals.
Ghee: Our Ayurvedic Cultured Ghee is made in small batches from butter churned from cultured organic cream yogurt. Ghee is the deeply nourishing core essence of milk. It has all of butter’s micronutrients and antioxidants but lacks the water, milk casein, and lactose. Compared to the ghee widely available on the market, our cultured ghee is much lighter and easier to digest. It helps repair the lining of the gut, nourish the skin and the brain, and more. Having a smoke point of 485℉, ghee is an excellent oil for cooking, roasting, or pan frying.
Pitta Khichari: Ayurveda’s culinary centerpiece, Khichari (pronounced KI-cha-REE) is India’s one-pot grain and bean dish. This comforting, complete protein recipe is the perfect on-the-go meal for any time of the day. The soaked, rinsed, and dehydrated ingredients and our freshly ground spice blend make this nourishing and cleansing meal convenient to eat healthy and feel good. Its simplicity allows for easy digestion while serving as a base for countless variations by adding your choice of vegetables and garnishes. We suggest making with ghee or olive oil, lime juice, and fresh herbs such as dill or mint. For adding vegetables to the Pitta Khichari, we recommend fennel, kale, spinach, chard, carrots, zucchini, okra, broccoli, daikon radish, sweet potato, asparagus.
Pitta Masala: When Pitta is out of balance, we feel fiery: we experience a lot of heat in the body, we can eat frequently but never gain a pound, or eat but never feel satisfied.This gentle spice blend combines the subtle aromas of ten different spices to cool your body, balance your appetite, open up your physical channels, and support your cellular metabolism. It’s perfect for summertime cooking or for people who cannot tolerate a lot of spice. Ingredients: Fennel, Coriander, Cumin, Turmeric, Green Cardamom, Rose Buds, Kalonji, Curry Leaf, Clove, Rose Hips.
DGL Powder: DGL (deglycyrrhized licorice) powder is effective for cooling the body, balancing pH, and binding and removing toxins. DGL has somagenic properties. Soma is the energetic influence that the moon has on the earth. It directly supports our existence with cooling, nurturing energy—the kind that we easily deplete of in our modern lives.
Rose Petals: Rose petals are cooling and balancing for all three doshas. Not only does rose soothe and calm the heart and mind but it also supports overall metabolism; rejuvenates the digestive tract, colon, and liver; enhances absorption to thereby nourish all bodily tissue layers; and relieves excess acidity and body heat. These qualities underline the translation of the Sanskrit word for rose, Taruni, which means “everyoung.”
