Here is what you will win:

Brahmi is known to rejuvenate the mind, enhance memory, improve concentration, and to directly influence the quality of consciousness. It is considered a sattvic herb (promoting subtle awareness). In fact, it is often used to support meditation as it increases the clarity and subtlety of mind.  Brahmi is preferred in mental or emotional aggravations involving both vata and pitta.

Tulsi removes excess kapha from the body while promoting healthy circulation, and strong digestion. It is also very sattvic in nature and it serves to elevate awareness, mental clarity, and the energy of love. This plant is so highly revered in India that it is often kept in and around the home for its deeply purifying and beneficial properties.

Shatavari is a nourishing tonic for both men and women. Its unctuous, grounding, and cooling, qualities make it a powerful rasayana (rejuvenative). It helps to strengthen and nourish the tissues while supporting both physical and mental digestion. Shatavari is also very sattvic (pure and harmonious) in nature, so it supports a calm mind and helps to promote love and devotion in our lives.

Ghee, sometimes called clarified butter, is unsalted organic butter cooked to remove the milk solids, leaving what is sometimes called “liquid sunshine.” It is an ancient and sattvic food that has the essence of the plants and animals, enhancing our connection to nature. Ghee is nourishing and nutrient rich and facilitates the absorption of nutrients in the food it is cooked with.

Good luck!
