Ashwagandha is another one of these amazing herbs, which is why it has been part of traditional Indian medicine for thousands of years. The name literally means “smell of horse”, but don’t let that put you off. This powerful essential oil will give you the strength of a horse as well.
As a traditional remedy, Ashwagandha is used to boost testosterone levels and fertility in men. Regardless of gender, however, Ashwagandha’s rejuvenating effects are great for boosting energy. This makes it a favorite essential oil for active lifestyles.
Ashwagandha is great for stress-reduction. It reduces levels of cortisol, a chemical in our bodies that helps to control stress, metabolism and inflammation. The reduction of these physical symptoms can help stress and anxiety subside.
