A grounding and warming organic oil that nourishes the muscles and tissues. Ashwagandha is known to have a calming effect on the nervous system promoting relaxation whilst also tonifying and strengthening the nerves.
Ashwagandha oil is used in Ayurveda for reducing Vata disorders such as nerve or muscle pain and poor circulation. It is ideal as a grounding massage oil for Vata constitutions or for anyone wanting to balance a Vata aggravation. It is also great to use after a work out or playing sport.
Ashwagandha oil helps restore the skin's natural suppleness and elasticity and is excellent for dry or dehydrated skin and reducing wrinkles.
We make our oils in the traditional Ayurvedic way which means that a full 250g of Ashwagandha root is used to make each litre of oil *
Organic Sesame oil (Sesame indicum), Ashwagandha root* (Withania somnifera)
* We are now using organic Ashwaganhda root to make our oils which is a paler colour and so the oil is lighter in colour than previous batches.
Self-massage at least once a week for 15 minutes with Ashwagandha oil is a very effective treatment to reduce Vata disorders. It has a soothing and restorative effect on the nervous system and is therefore very beneficial for anyone suffering from stress or wishing to prevent the effects of strenuous work or training. Apply slightly warmed oil to the whole body paying particular attention to head, lower back, abdomen and feet. Rest for at least half an hour before taking a shower or bath. Applying Ashwagandha oil locally to joints and muscles is a good treatment and preventative measure for anyone that has a physically demanding lifestyle.
