This is one of my favorite Ayurvedic practices. It brings a calm to the entire home when the delicious smell of ghee fills my house. I usually keep silence, play a mantra or say one quietly to myself when I make it.
One thing I forgot to mention in the video, is that ghee is best done on or just before the full moon. That way we harness the powerful qualities of the waxing moon in the ghee. If you think about it, our bodies consist of 50-75 % water. If our oceans and water sources on the earth are so heavily affected by ebb and flow, it only makes sense that it affects us too. Today is full moon, so take the chance to make ghee today.

It hasn't been a simple or straight forward journey this no-sugar-experiment.
After making a few exceptions over easter, I realized quickly that I stand by this desicion and went back to only having natural sugars found in fruits, honey, jaggery and maple sirup.
I feel great, my skin is clear and I rarely crave sugar anymore.
