Arishtams for Winter

Arishtams are herbal formulas fermented with jaggery, sugar, or honey. The fermentation generates 5 – 10% alcohol, which acts as a medium for extracting deeper qualities from the herbs. They are a perfect choice for winter as they warm digestion and provide many healing benefits.

  • Improves digestion
  • Aids elimination of ama (toxins)
  • Increases the absorption of nutrients
