Ayurveda recognizes four types of fats; ghrita (ghee), oil (sesame), vasa (muscle), and majjā (marrow). The unique properties of ghrita stay intact, even when combined with herbs of differing qualities does not lose its own qualities. Ghrita alleviates pitta and vata and is beneficial for rasa, shukra and oja. It provides relief from burning sensation, softens the tissues, improves voice and complexion.
In all types of jīrṇa jwara (chronic fever), the internal use of Ghritams is recommended. Ghrita pacifies vata by its unctuousness, pitta by its coldness, and kapha when combined with kapha pacifying herbs.
Arishtas and Asavas are medicinal herbs processed by fermentation. In general, Arishtas are dried herbs decocted in boiling water and Asavas are fresh herbs decocted in lukewarm or cold water, both are fermented with either jaggery, sugar or honey. The fermentation generates 5 – 10% alcohol which acts as a medium extracting the deeper quality of the herbs. They are very therapeutic and have been safely utilized by Ayurveda for as many as 5000 years.
