Simple Ojas Nightly Tonic

According to Ayurveda, chronic or excessive stress depletes a precious substance in the body called ojas. Ojas means vigor or vitality and is said to support healthy sleep, vitality, and virility cycles. In Ayurveda, there are certain foods and herbs that build ojas, and it all starts with milk.

To replenish and revitalize, and for a good night sleep, here’s a recipe for a mix of ingredients that can be made in advance and then added to a nightly cup of hot milk:

To 1 cup hot milk, add 1.5 tsp of the following mix:

  • Chopped dates (1 tbsp)
  • Chopped almonds (2 tsp)
  • Coconut meat or flakes (1 tbsp)
  • Saffron (1/2 tsp)
  • Ghee (1-2 tsp)
  • Cardamom (1/8 tsp)

"Diet has the distinction of being the only major determinant of health that is completely under your control. You have the final say over what does and what does not go into your mouth and stomach. You cannot always control the other determinants of health, such as the quality of the air you breathe, the noise you are subjected to, or the emotional climate of your suroundings, but you can control what you eat. It is a shame to squander such a good opportunity to influence your health." ~Andrew Weil, MD
