Whether taken in herbal tea or cosmetic products, centella is favoured for its potent skin care benefits and ability to promote youthfulness through its anti-aging, brightening, firming and tightening properties.
In India, centella is used in Ayurvedic medicine to heal skin ailments, like eczema, and to help soothe inflammation. In fact, centella is often referred to as Tiger Grass or Tiger Herb as ancient Laotian legend has it that tigers would rub their wounds on the leaves for faster healing. In Malaysia and Indonesia, the leaves are used in herbal tonic drinks to promote inner as well as outer beauty, while maintaining health. It is thought to improve mental focus, clarity and increase memory retention.
Centella is considered a ‘balancing’ tonic that relaxes the body, creating a calming effect to help encourage sleep or meditation. Carrying these associations with mental clarity and calmness, ingredients like centella are sought-after solutions to the worldwide issue of anxiety.
A favorite in traditional remedies, centella is now gaining global attention as beauty brands promote its many benefits for skin – further fueled by consumers eager to discover ancient cures, the next ‘super ingredient’ or natural beauty remedy. As the creation of many beauty products continues to be informed by concepts around wellness and holistic approaches, such ingredients become more important in a brand’s claim.

One of the first mentions of Gotu Kola can be found in the Chinese “Shennong Herbal ” dating to 200 to 100 BC, where it is noted as the “Fountain of Life.” In fact, a Chinese herbalist named Li Ching Yun was believed to have lived to 256 years old thanks to drinking an elixir with Gotu Kola. The herb is considered sacred in India, and is known as a Brahmi herb in Ayurveda for its ability to awaken spiritual perception. In the 1800s, it became widely used in India as a way to protect and nurture the skin. Around the same time, the French began using it for its cognitive benefits. 

Studies have found that gotu kola makes it harder to become pregnant. Do not use gotu kola if you have any health conditions, especially liver disease. Stop using gotu kola for at least 2 weeks before surgery.

Although there is limited research on gotu kola’s effect on other medications, it’s possible that it can interfere with prescription or over-the-counter medications. It could interact with medicines metabolized by the liver. Gotu kola could amplify the effects of alcohol and sedative medications.
Always consult your doctor before using gotu kola.
