Brahmi is an ancient ayurvedic herb that has been used for centuries to promote overall health and wellbeing. It is a powerful herbal oil which features in many Mauli Rituals products to improve skin health and hair growth. But why do we love it so much, and what are its specific benefits?

What Is Brahmi Oil?

Brahmi oil, also known as Gotu kola or Centella Asiatica, is made from the Brahmi plant which is native to India and Southeast Asia, and is used by many Ayurvedic doctors and wellness practitioners to reduce stress, hair loss and promote overall balance. It is also known for its adaptogenic properties that improve cognitive function and nervous system health. It truly is a superhero adaptogen for your mind, body and skin.

Benefits Of Brahmi Oil

There are an abundance of benefits of Brahmi oil. It’s a three-in-one treatment for the scalp, hair and brain. Let us deep dive into some of its amazing health benefits. 

Brahmi Oil Reduces Anxiety & Stress

It serves as an antioxidant and helps to reduce the production of the stress hormone cortisol and helps balance the level of blood pressure. Massaging the therapeutic oil into your scalp is amazing to promote cognitive function, minimise headaches and relax a busy mind.

Brahmi Oil Improves Sleep Quality & Memory Function

The calming and energising properties of brahmi, promote concentration as well as deep relaxation. We love the aromatherapy of our Calm Balm to improve our biological cycle and sleep quality.

Brahmi Oil Reduces Hair Loss & Promotes Hair Growth

Brahmi improves circulation and rejuvenates the follicles that promote hair growth, and stimulates the blood vessels limiting hair loss. It moisturises, nourishes and strengthens the hair making it healthier, shinier and fuller. Antioxidants help eliminate free radicals and toxins, protecting the hair shaft and reducing split ends.

Brahmi Oil Soothes The Scalp & Eliminates Dandruff

Brahmi oil helps prevent the scalp from being dry, flaky or oily by balancing the level of sebum production and the pH level of the scalp which keeps it clean and fungi free, minimising irritable dandruff. It acts as a cooling agent and treats inflammation in the scalp. 

How To Use Brahmi Oil

Brahmi oil is used in a variety of Mauli Rituals products. Here’s the best way to use them:

  1. Scalp Massage: Massage a few drops of Grow Strong Hair Oil into your scalp and hair to promote hair growth and reduce hair loss. Check out out tutorial on Tik Tok for the full routine. After a few hours, rinse out oil use with our Grow Strong Shampoo to further stimulate and activate the brahmi ingredient.

Brow Oil Application: Apply Brahmi oil directly to your brows with our Grow Strong Brow Oil to promote hair growth, nourish brows and repair and protect hairs so they can grow stronger and healthier. 75% of our testers reported that their brows were revitalised and visibly healthier after using Grow Strong Brow Oil for 30 days. It’s magic! Watch our video on Tik Tok to learn more about it.

  3. Aromatherapy: Add a pea sized amount of Calm Balm to temples and wrists to enjoy the calming and relaxing aromas of Brahmi. It's the perfect way to wind down before bed or use in your yoga nidra or meditation practice. See our ritual on Instagram.
