HOW TO PREPARE ASH MEDICINES:

They are folk remedies intended to be prepared at home and shared freely for the benefit of all.For optimal purity of Agnihotra ash used for medicines, it is best to bathe and put on clean clothes before performing Agnihotra. After performing Agnihotra, do not disturb the ash until the next Agnihotra cycle. In other words, after evening Agnihotra, do not touch the ash until the next morning.Keep the Agnihotra ash in a natural container like glass, pottery or copper. Do not store the ash in plastic or any other metal besides copper.
