According to Ayurveda- our physical, mental, and spiritual strength is dependent on the subtle energy force referred to as ojas. Ojas maintains our physical body and its rhythms with nature, provides a strong and vibrant immune system, and transmits energy from mind to body. This vital energy can be supported by aligning lifestyle and diet with the seasons and avoiding over-activating substances and activities. Savor the sweetness of life, turn within, rest, and be nourished.
This rejuvenative recipe has been adapted from a traditional Ayurvedic remedy intended to strengthen ojas and promote deep nourishment.
