Have you ever been in the presence of someone who radiated health and happiness? Whose eyes, skin, hair, and smile made you not only want to be around them, but also want to know what their secret to such beauty was? There IS a secret to this state of being—but it’s not a spa treatment, beauty product, or even a vitamin or superfood. It’s called ojas, which is a Sanskrit term used in Ayurveda to describe this vital quality of body, mind, and spirit.
Ojas Milk is a classic Ayurvedic recipe that helps to build and restore ojas with ingredients that are especially sattvic, or harmonious and life-giving, and rasayana, or rejuvenating, to the entire mind-body network. Made of warmed milk, almonds, dates, and a special combination of herbs and spices, Ojas Milk feels like a hug inside your body. But, you can cultivate ojas in other ways too—like these Ojas Bites. These pop-able, portable, and vibrant snacks deliver all the same nutrition and energy as the drink, but in a more convenient (and cooling!) package. Enjoy a bite or two between lunch and dinner, or after dinner as a way to support restful sleep.
