Dark circles: Contains antioxidants that can wade away dark circles, wrinkles

Gently massage ghee under your eyes with your fingertips in circular motions. Leave it on overnight.

Rinse with cold water in the morning. Repeat this every day for a week for visible results.

Hair health: Moisturizes the scalp and is an excellent conditioner

Ghee is rich in antioxidants and vitamin E and is an excellent replacement for oil.

Massage warm ghee onto your scalp and leave it overnight. Use a shower cap to avoid staining pillow covers.

This will improve the blood circulation to the scalp and promote healthy hair growth.

Ghee is also an excellent conditioner and the same treatment can be done for shiny hair.

Lips: Ghee is an excellent exfoliant for the lips

Simply applying ghee to the lips can help nourish them when they are dry.

Ghee can also be used as an exfoliant to remove dead skin.

Mix some ghee with sugar. Massage the scrub onto your lips in a circular motion.

Let it sit for 30 minutes and wipe it off with tissue paper.

You will notice that your lips instantly feel soft and supple.
