Bacopa monnieri is a wetland perennial, native to India and Sri Lanka. Brahmi has traditionally been used in Ayurvedic medicine for its beneficial qualities and for balancing all three doshas. The plant’s scientific name translates to “energy of universal consciousness” and according to folklore, has been thought to support the mind. Brahmi is considered bitter and energetically cooling and can be steeped in herbal tea, employed in extracts, or infused in oil for topical use.
Brahmi is a creeping perennial, native to many parts of world and most frequently found in tropical regions of the Asian continent. It grows in marshy, wet environments and has since migrated to parts of North and Central America, particularly the Florida wetlands. The plant grows small white flowers and has thick leaves that resemble those of a succulent. Brahmi is frequently incorporated into aquariums due to its ability to grow and live in water. A member of the Scrophulariaceae family, brahmi goes by several common names including bacopa, herb-of-grace, Indian pennywort, water hyssop, and mandukaparni. Mountain Rose offers the dried aerial portions.
