Ghee is one of the main ingredients of many Ayurvedic medicines, and is being used for at least a few centuries for medicinal purposes. But the quality of ghee that was used in those medicines was quite different from the one we now eat. The way homemade ghee used to be made from pure milk, it created certain food values.
