“Danielle’s Tikta Grita (bitter ghee) came highly recommended for me from my Ayurveda practitioner. I was in a bad automobile accident and suffering with pain and inflammation from serious injuries. I am not exactly sure what the ghee is doing but it helps with the inflammation and pain for sure. I take it every morning before yoga asana practice and notice a huge difference in my ability to move into my injuries. I don’t like to do with out it. I know its healing benefits are highly beneficial for me.” Lorna from New Hampshire

“I’m grateful to have found Svastha Ayuveda. I’ve struggled with psoriasis for over two years, tried western medicine, vitamins & other remedies to no avail. This Stuff WORKS! I take the Tikta-ghrita daily, kapha honey & use mainly pitta oil on my skin. I use other products as well, but these are my staple medicines. Thank you, Danielle, for so many things!”  Amy from Oregon
