Traditionally an Ayurvedic tonic, “golden milk” has been used for centuries to promote restful sleep, support the immune system, and combat inflammation in the body. The ingredients used to make golden milk help to build strong ojas. (Not sure what ojas is and what it means to our bodies? Read on or skip ahead to the next paragraph.) Consider ojas the subtle building blocks of our vitality. According to Ayurveda, ojas is a substance in our bodies responsible for healthy aging and immunity, glowing skin, physical strength, restful sleep, digestion, and committed spirituality.
When our ojas is strong, so are we, both emotionally and physically. Our eyes are crystal clear and shiny, our skin radiates, reproductive systems are functioning well, our immune systems are thriving – basically everything GOOD is going on. How do we know when our ojas is low? A lack of ojas will show itself by means of anxiety, a compromised immune system, fertility issues, exhaustion and a lackluster complexion. Essentially, our body and mind can feel depleted and run down when our ojas is low. Before you start to worry about your ojas, rest easy in knowing Ayurveda has a remedy. Remember in Ayurveda, like increases like and opposites create balance. When we are low, we should seek what will lift us up. Enter: golden milk.
The key ingredient in golden milk that gives it its namesake color is turmeric. Turmeric is believed to support the health of all the three doshas; for this reason, it’s recommended for a large variety of ailments and used as a potent ojas-enhancing and immunity-boosting herb. Curcumin is the main active ingredient in turmeric. It has powerful anti-inflammatory effects and is a very strong antioxidant. Combined with a ton of other herbs like ginger to help fight infections as well as ashwagandha to restore energy levels and delay aging, this ojas building tonic will be your new best friend.
It’s no secret we love golden milk, so naturally we had to make our own blend. Golden milk has certainly been having a “moment” for some time now, but our mix breathes new life into the time-tested tradition. We start with our own curated blend of Ayurvedic spices, creamy coconut milk and blend with our golden ghee for the ultimate rejuvenating tonic, perfect for this time of year. We take this recipe up another level with the addition of Chyavanprash. This jammy blend of Ayurvedic herbs and spices gives us the extra dose of care for our immune system. Just stir in one tablespoon of Farmtrue Golden Milk with 8 oz of hot water to start your morning or before bed as an ojas-building sleep aid. Any time you need a little rejuvenation, we’ve got you covered!
It’s tough to put our lives on hold when our bodies crash and our health is not at it’s best. Winter is often when we finally allow ourselves the opportunity to slow down and our weakened immune systems seize the moment. Moments like this remind us that honoring our bodies and giving ourselves what we need is a daily practice. We can’t fill anyone else’s cup if ours is not full. And what better to fill it with than delicious & creamy Farmtrue golden milk. Warm. Relaxed. Invigorated. You deserve to experience those feelings. We invite you to settle in with our hug in a mug and sip your way to wellness.
