Brahmi Oil

Brahmi oil is ayurvedic oil which is an herbal fusion of bacopa monnieri and gotu kola. This oil is usually used in combination with sesame oil or coconut oil but can also be used alone. The oil is generally used for topical application. However, there are brahmi supplements that can be taken orally but the oil itself should not be consumed directly.

Nutritional Value of Brahmi Oil

Brahmi oil is mostly used for exterior or topical use. However, Brahmi can be taken in the form of powder, tablet liquid extract. Most often, the herbs of Brahmi – bacopa or gotu kola, are taken along with ghee. This improves the efficacy for mind relaxation. Brahmi, whether in powdered form or consumed in liquid form, has more medicinal value than nutritional value.

Health Benefits of Brahmi Oil

For hair growth and strength

Brahmi oil can be an ideal remedy for slow hair growth. This oil can be used as a natural hair conditioner as well as it can be used for a relaxing hot oil massage. No matter how this oil is applied to the hair, it is very beneficial in strengthening the hair roots, which help in reducing hair fall. Massaging the scalp with this oil around twice a week will significantly improve blood circulation that would ultimately accelerate hair growth.

For preventing premature greying of hair

Brahmi oil is a very good source of anti-oxidants. These anti-oxidants work against the free radicals, which are primarily responsible for causing early signs of ageing, particularly premature greying of hair. Regular use of brahmi oil for massaging the scalp will help to prevent greying of hair, especially when used in combination with Amla.

For reducing dandruff and dryness of hair

Brahmi oil massage is a great solution for those suffering from dandruff problems. Brahmi oil massage tends to cool the scalp and soothe irritation or itching that is caused due to excessive dryness of hair. This helps in reducing flakiness on the scalp and dandruff.

For aiding with sleep problems

Brahmi oil is known to be very beneficial for those people who are suffering from insomnia or are occasionally facing difficulties in sleeping peacefully. For this purpose, this oil can be used in two ways. One, brahmi oil can be used during bath. For this remedy, a few drops of brahmi essential oil can be added to the water, and soaking the hair in this water for a few minutes makes the remedy more effective. The other way to use this oil is to massage the scalp for a good 10 minutes with this essential oil before sleeping. This tends to relax the hair roots as well as relax the mind that ensures a good sleep.

For anxiety

Brahmi oil is known for its relaxing properties and hence is very useful in treating anxiety. People who often experience problems with anxiousness can find some relief with the use of this oil on a regular basis. Inhaling this oil is very effective in this regard.

For treating ulcers

Brahmi oil contains the herb Bacopa Monnieri. This herb is effective in relieving open wounds such as ulcers. For mouth ulcers, applying a drop or two or brahmi oil brings instant relief. This oil forms a protective layer on the ulcer and prevents this sting while also healing the ulcer.

For reducing stress

Brahmi oil massage has a lot more benefits apart from benefitting the hair. The best it does is reduces stress levels, improves concentration thereby also contributes in improving the memory power. It is hence considered to be effective for people suffering from dementia or other conditions related to memory loss.

While it is not yet proven if brahmi oil massage can really impact the progression of the disease, it definitely is helpful in effective management of the condition.

For an alert mind

Brahmi head oil massage improves the blood circulation to the brain. Regularly using this oil for massaging the scalp for a long time, can significantly improve the normal functioning of the brain and this leads to improving concentration as well as improving alertness in people.
