    I love this very good tikta ghrita. It works very good for pitta imbalances, and acne

    I bought this while on a cleanse and had some left over, so now I’m using it every morning as a sort of coffee substitute. Ok, nothing like coffee really, but upon rising I generally drink about 16 oz of warm/hot water and then do some light yoga. Afterwards, as soon as I have the first pang of hunger, I take 1/2 t of the bitter ghee in half cup of warm/hot water. I really like it! I feel like the bitter gets my liver going like coffee would. Then I eat breakfast about 15-30 minutes later. The description says its tri-dosha. I am a pitta-vata (with primarily pitta issues) I have been taking it all winter. (in Canada) It seems to be going well!

    I had a pitta related disorder diagnosed. I knew from child hood that Neem cures skin diseases and cools down excess pitta. Felt lucky to find excellent quality formulation of Tikta grita at SvathaAyurveda. I have used 2 jars and it made a great difference in my symptoms. I have ordered for more. Excellent quality and quick shipping. Thank you SvathaAyurveda Apothecary.

    I used Tikta Ghrita as part of a liver cleanse. Thankfully, I liked the taste since the cleanse required me to take 1 tablespoon (with hot water) before each meal. I am very happy with the results of the cleanse.
