Ashwagandha Magical and Medicinal Properties

Ashwagandha is a powerful plant medicine with a variety of medicinal, magical and spiritual uses. It is most commonly used to reduce anxiety and can be taken in the form of tinctures, teas, capsules or gummies. Ashwagandha is a mood enhancer, a stress reliever, and a third eye opener with a rich history dating back thousands of years. 


Magical and Spiritual Properties of Ashwagandha 


Ashwgandha is connected to body mind spirit health in each sense of the world. It is associated with the root and third eye chakra, and is a third eye opener. It also supports the body's spirit, improving vitality and energy levels. Ashwagandha is a beautiful third eye opener because of its connection to the root chakra – to open to the spiritual worlds we must be rooted and grounded in our bodies. In this way, Ashwgandha helps tether us as the bridge between worlds, creating a channel of connection through our being, from the earth and into the heavens. Ashwgandha has been said to improve moods and increase cognitive functioning. The body mind spirit connection is truly there, supporting us in physical, mental and spiritual ways all at once. 


Medicinal Properties of Ashwgandha


Ashwagandha is known for its effects in reducing and managing anxiety, leading many people to turn to it as a holistic remedy. For managing anxiety, ashwagandha is ingested, typically through tinctures, gummies or teas. It is thought to reduce swelling, lower blood pressure and boost the immune system. It is also said to assist with sleep. Large doses can upset the stomach and not everyone may benefit from the healing properties of Ashwagandha, so it is important to do your research and listen to your body. If you're concerned about the effects it may have on medication or medical conditions that you have, speak to your doctor first. Pregnant people are not advised to take ashwagandha. If you have a thyroid condition speak to your doctor first as ashwagandha may make it worse. For most people, however, ashawandha is a safe and healthy way to reduce stress and manage a state of calm in their body and mind. (Source)


Ancient History of Ashwagandha 


Ashwagandha has a long and favored use in the Middle East, some places in Africa and India where the plant has been used for thousands of years in Ayurveda, an ancient health system rooted in India still widely practiced today. Throughout the ages, ashwagandha has been used to lower stress and induce the mind into a state of calm. It has long been thought in Ayurveda to improve longevity, which makes sense as modern science has now caught up to ancient wisdom, empirically proving the deadly effects of cortisol (a stress hormone) on the body. (Source) Stress, it turns out, will kill you. It is clear the people of the past knew this well, and they took care to manage the stress within their bodies and minds through this, and other, medicinal plant spirit allies. Now, there is a resurgence of this information in the Western world, and many are turning to Ashwgandha in the same way people have historically throughout the ages in other parts of the world. It is worth noting, because Ashwagandha is something of a popular commercial remedy at the moment, that not every seller of this plant is going to be authentic or honest. Many of the gummies on the market are mostly sugar with a trace amount of the plant. For that reason, making your own tinctures and teas may be the best option. You can purchase Ashwagandha at our storefront or online website
