Brahmi has been used to refer two different Ayurvedic herbs - Bacopa monnieri and Centella asiatica. Brahmi is a Sanskrit word that literally means the feminine essence of universal awareness as well as the promoter of subtle mindfulness. They are also both highly revered for their enhancing properties for the nervous system. If we delve deeper, we find that the dual use of the name brahmi can be understood in geographical terms; in southern India, brahmi refers to Bacopa monnieri; while in Northern India, brahmi refers to Centella asiatica.

Also called Water Hyssop and Herpestis monniera, Bacopa is native to the wetlands of Southern India, but commonly grows in the United States, Europe and Africa. It is a creeping perennial plant with small leaves and purple flowers found in warm wetlands. It is a very common amphibious plant of the Pan Tropics where it occupies the banks of slow flowing rivers and flourishes well in soft to hard, even brackish water.


Popularly referred to as the herb of grace and the thinking person's herb, Brahmi Oil has been used since ancient time in folklore as well as the traditional system of medicine for alleviating all kinds of mental ailments with its neuro-pharmacological effects. It is an excellent rejuvenator not just for the mind and nervous system, but for all the systems in the body. Bacopa supports the proper function of the brain and nerves, bringing balance and calmness to the nervous system thus promoting clarity and awareness.

Whatever one may prefer to call it - bacopa, brahmi, or herb of grace; this is a wonderful herb that will support yours wellness, vitality, and mental awareness.
