Milk with herbs: When we wish to use certain
herbs with pungent and hot properties in children,
or in person with less strength, those herbs are
processed with cow milk. This serves three purposes.
- The herbal remedy gets the extra nutritional quality of milk.
- The pungency and the strength of the herb is lowered. Thus
the herbal formula is made suitable for patient with less strength.
- Milk acts as a fat and water soluble media for the active
principles in the herb.
