Yesterday as I was browsing my archives to find out some particular post, I came across this DIY – The Washed Ghee. This post reminded me that it has been so long since I have actually done any hard core DIY. Time to pick up some project, may be! But, before I hunt down something for myself, you have to definitely check out this post and try out this amazing experiment. And, by the way, the result just does not look yummy but it actually is amazing as well.
- 1 cup cow ghee
- Mineral / Filtered Water – as much as needed

- This should be traditionally made in copper vessel but I did not have one so I skipped it. And, I also guess it should not be made with electricity so that it retains the natural ions and natural properties unaltered by any foreign influence but I used electric blender.
- So, take one cup of ghee in a bowl. Take a glass bowl, preferably, so that there is no reaction. Add a cup of water.
- Whip the mixture with the blender. Beware that there will be a LOT of splashing around. It is an extremely messy process.
- After 5 minutes of whipping, pass the mixture through a sieve to filter out the extra water.
- The steps 3 and 4 are basically what is washing the ghee. So, traditionally, these steps must be repeated for 100 times for a great end result. If you are not so patient, do it for 25 times.
- Now, I am not really a patient person and the splashing in the beginning made me quite impatient to get over with this DIY so I repeated the washed the ghee for only 5 times.
- Also, if you repeat this washing process for 25-100 times, the smell of the ghee goes away. Well, it did not really go away in 5 times so I added patchouli and french cypress essential oils.
- A small amount of ghee can give you huge amount of cream at the end so make sure you start with a very small batch for the first time.
- Since it uses water, I am not sure how long it will keep. So, for now, I am storing it in the refrigerator.
Now, it is your turn! So, have you ever heard of washed ghee process? For me, it was a first. Do you think you would be trying it out? I would definitely suggest you do. So, do try it out and let me know if you liked it!
