I found this recipe on http://www.elephantjournal.com/2012/07/drink-this-sleep-like-a-baby/. I haven't tried it yet but it looked interesting so I'm saving it here for another day. "According to Ayurveda, chronic or excessive stress would deplete a precious substance in the body called ojas. Ojas is said to be the physiological expression of consciousness, in charge of immunity, reproduction, beauty, and the overall health and well-being of the individual."

  3. Shatavari (Strength of 100 Husbands, sometimes spelled Shatawari).
  4. Ashwagandha (Strength of Ten Horses, sometimes spelled Ashwaganda).
  5. 3. Once the milk, herbs, and ojas-building foods and spices are cooked and off the flame, add 1 tsp of honey.
