Guti Pills

Nov 22 / Judy Lieblein
I recently did an Ayurveda class in the monthly Herbs A-Z class with Matthew Wood, MS. I shared this recipe with students.

Guti pills taken daily helps with regulating digestion and elimination. They are a traditional Ayurveda remedy.

You can learn more about 'herb pastilles' like this in the Herbal Medicine Making course.

Guti Pill

(Adapted from DeAnna Batdorff)

  • 4 oz Turmeric powder
  • 2 tbsp cardamom
  • 2 tbsp black pepper
  • 1 tbsp rose hydrosol
  • Local raw honey

  1. Grind the cardamom pods and black pepper in a mortar and pestle, separately.
  2. Remove the outer skins of the cardamom pods.
  3. Mix the turmeric and rose hydrosol with the ground black pepper and cardamom seeds.
  4. Add enough honey to make a dry paste.
  5. When it is easy to shape a small pea size pill you are done.

You can roll the paste into pills and keep them in an airtight container or keep the mixture in a small jar (my preference) and take a small piece out to eat. Eat one pill a day.
