What is Ashwagandha?

Ashwagandha is often called Indian ginseng. It has a wide range of medicinal properties and has been used for centuries.

Ashwagandha is one of the most important herbs in Ayurvedic medicine and is used to strengthen mental and physical health, protect against disease and harmful environmental factors and delay the aging process. Ayurveda is India's ancient health science.

BeeKi's oil 11.11 Vitality oil contains Ashwhandha. It is deeply nourishing for body and mind. Good for meditation, is calming, promotes sleep and excellent for massage.

The herb is said to give strength and vitality like a horse

Ashwgandha is an adaptogenic herb, which means that it can both stimulate and inhibit the same functions in the body, all depending on the need. It has a normalizing or balancing effect, and is known to have a calming and strengthening/vitalizing effect. Literally (Sanskrit), Ashwagandha means "smell of a horse" because fresh herbs smell like a horse, and because the herb is said to give strength and vitality like a horse. In Latin, on the other hand, the species' name (Somnifera) can be translated as sleep-inducing.

Ashwagandha is used in capsules or as a tea to give strength, balance and harmony. New studies show that Ashwagandha contributes to increased tolerance for stress, and it helps to maintain physical and mental capacity, as well as emotional balance and easier falling asleep.

The Ashwagandha oil we use in 11.11 Vitality is made in an authentic Ayurvedic way from Ashwagandha roots in a base of organic sesame seed oil (Sesamum indicum). The oil is specifically made for use in skin care. It contains only pure and organic herbs that are ethically harvested and of high quality.

Ashwagandha oil is very nourishing and keeps the skin supple and elastic. It contains antioxidants that protect the skin against free radicals from e.g. UV radiation and pollution. It prevents wrinkles and other signs of aging. It has soothing properties and can be soothing on red and irritated skin, psoriasis and eczema. Suitable for dry and dehydrated skin.

Ashwagandha is a deeply penetrating and warming oil that nourishes bones, muscles and tissues. It has a calming effect on the nervous system while toning and strengthening the nerves. Excellent for nerve and muscle pain, poor circulation, stress and anxiety. Suitable for massaging stiff, tight and tired muscles.
