Anjana is a eye treatment that is part of daily living in Tamil Nadu, India. Anjana is made from three herbs that are extracted and cooked with ghee (clarified butter). While cooking the herbs cover the flame with a large spoon and scrape off the ash from the spoon. To apply to the eyes, take a pinch of ash and 1/2 teaspoon of ghee and apply to the inner eye lids. This cools the eyes, enhances vision, and protects the eyes. The upside for us ladies is that it provides an all-natural eyeliner for the day :)
