Ashwagandha is native to India where it grows in the wild. It is also cultivated throughout the country for larger production needs.

 

HISTORY AND FOLKLORE

 

In Ayurveda, the root is used, often powdered and mixed with honey and ghee (clarified butter). It has been part of their repertoire for millennia. 'Ashwagandha' literally means 'smelling like a horse' which most likely refers to its actual scent.

In Ayurveda it is a helpful sleep aid and used to balance various conditions that arise from 'vata dosha' imbalances. It is believed to encourage youth and vitality. It is considered a grounding and nourishing herb and supportive to female well-being.
