One of the hymns of the Rg Veda praises ghee. The vedas called the ghee ‘the first and the most essential of all foods’. Whether it is health or rituals, pure vedic ghee has been a pivotal element since ages in India.
Origin of ghee:
Earlier in ancient India when domestication of cows started, our ancestors started consuming butter prepared from milk. However, it turns rancid due to India’s hot weather conditions. Hence, in terms of improving shelf life of their palatable butter they started clarifying it and the ghee is prepared for the first time in history.

These vessels were generally sealed with wax or dough to ensure air tightness which imparts longer shelf life.
