|Ashwagandha Oil (100% Certified Organic by USDA, Control Union & India Organic)
Ashwa means ‘horse’ in Sanskrit, and Ashwagandha oil imparts the strength and vitality of a horse to one that uses it. Generally, Ashwagandha is a potent rejuvenator of tissues, calmer of the nerves, and general tonic. Here, blended in Sesame oil and White Sandalwood oil, its effects are mobilized for a soothing massage treatment of the head or body. The benefits of Ashwagandha combine with the soothing, grounding, and aromatic effects of sesame and white sandalwood oil to create a potent tonic for the muscles and nerves.
Ashwagandha has a heating energy and sweet post-digestive effect. The heating energy of Ashwagandha benefit nerves which have been tired by excess vata by relaxing them. Vata imbalance, which is cold and dry in effect, can be the result of stress, anxiety, grief or dehydration and over-work of the muscles and the senses. The heat of Ashwagandha benefits these nerves and stimulates their metabolic and anabolic processes. Though its post-digestive effect might not seem relevant for its external application, Ayurvedic medicine understands the digestive power of all parts of the body, even the skin. The heating energy of Ashwagandha ’s benefits combine with the sweet post-digestive effect which is moistening and nutritive to the tissues, and they work synergistically to support tissue regeneration and revitalization. The nutritive effect provides food for digestion and regeneration, while the moist effect facilitates these processes by counteracting the dryness often already present from an aggravated vata and balancing the potentially additional drying effect of the heat.
Sesame oil is regarded as one of the most sattvic, or wise, oils in ayurvedic medicine, as it brings balance and clarity to the mind and the consciousness of the body. Ashwagandha side effects are few. It is very effective in the treatment of Vata and for nourishing the nervous system , and is rich in minerals and vitamins including magnesium, copper, calcium, iron, zinc, vitamin B6, and omega-6 fatty acids. These qualities render it a particularly effective ally to the benefits of Ashwagandha for the soothing and nourishing of the muscles and nerves. As the naturally calming and grounding effects of sesame oil augment those of Ashwanganda, and the vitamins and minerals serve a range of metabolic and nutritive functions in the surface muscles. In addition, these minerals and constituents of sesame oil give it anti-oxidant and anti-depressant effects, which further encourage mental acuity and awareness and bring about a sense of well-being.
White Sandalwood has a long history of use in ayurvedic medicine and Indian culture. It is known worldwide for its heavenly scent, and has consequently been used to bring the divine to mind and body for millennia. Besides its soothing aroma, sandalwood oil cleans and moisturizes the skin and the passageways of the body. This helps one to release both stress and the toxic build-up which perpetuates it. It is effective for a variety of skin problems from dryness and cracking to bacterial and oleic build-up. It generally helps restore the balance of moisture and nervine flow. Sandalwood is also regarded as a sattvic oil blessing one with the divine attributes of balance and clarity.
Ashwagandha oil is a blend of three powerful plants which collaborate to effect the synergistic revitalization of mind and body. Each component works to calm the nerves and increase the flow of psychic energy throughout the body, while individually providing their own unique complement necessary for the regeneration of worn tissues. Ashwanganda provides nourishment while sesame and sandalwood provide minerals and vitamins. Together they render a potent massage treatment for the stressed, anxious, and overworked. Consequently there are many uses of Ashwagandha oil. It is great for local and full body massages, day or night. In oil, Ashwagandha dosage is mild but sufficient to confer its benefits. Ashwagandha oil is safe to use liberally without risk of side effects.

About Gopala Ayurveda:
The Hindi meaning Gopala is ‘The Nurturer of the Cow’. The cow is an auspicious blessing from Mother Earth for the good of all humankind. They who care for the blessings which our Mother has given us, care for the Mother herself. It is through this care that the bountiful provision which is our inheritance is enjoyed, preserved and multiplied for ourselves, our children and generations to come. This is our deepest desire and purpose: that all humanity may have life and have it more fully. Our name in every way reflects this desire and the means by which we propose to pursue it. It is for this reason that we use only 100% organically grown, harvested, and processed herbs in our products, support sustainable economics, and endeavor to continue the millennia old tradition of natural and holistic science.
The roots of Gopala Ayurveda reach deep into the rich and ancient naturopathic tradition of Ayurveda. Utilizing the wisdom of this four thousand year old science with the technological potential of modern science we render these ancient formulations in a potent form, all the while maintaining faithful adherence to the formulae and therapies of the ancient texts. To this end, we have spearheaded research to develop Ayurveda’s vast herbal tradition into a comprehensive range of products to support healthiest and longest lives for our customers. These products have been met with warm reception in medical communities all over the world, and continue to serve the personal and healthcare needs of all parts of humanity.
Gopala is a pioneer in purely organic ayurvedic supplements, herbs, and oils. We promote healthy foods and nutritional products, and despite utilizing the benefits of modern science and technology, we train a strict eye on all stages of development and processing to be sure that our products do not suffer contact with any toxic or synthetic chemicals. Since the birth of this project, we have focused on the development of safe and effective remedies that will help people lead richer and healthier lives.
Gopala is not simply organic, which means to be free from any chemicals, pesticides, synthetic fertilizers, artificial additives, preservatives, and heavy metals, but we are 100% Certified Organic, meaning that the customer has the added security of the USDA regulatory action which requires that all ingredients in all products be traceable through their processing history and to the place of origin. Consequently, the consumer may know both exactly where and when each herb came from and the circumstances surrounding this journey to their hands. Gopala is unique in this regard. Other manufacturers, having claimed proprietary rights to ancient formulae have taken the liberties of enhancing these revered concoctions with preservatives, synthetic substitutes, and more. We, however, continue this venerable tradition as it has been maintained for thousands of years, in the sole interest of a whole and healthy life.
