Gotu kola (Centella asiatica) is a brain boosting, thought clearing, anti-inflammatory adaptogen! A traditional Ayurvedic herb which is now used in mainstream western herbalism, it is considered to be a brain tonic which assists with memory, concentration, and clarity. Some of its lesser known uses is as a restorative for soft tissue healing and skin conditions as it has been shown in clinical trials to inhibit certain inflammatory enzymes, making it helpful in injuries such as burns of all types and potentially post surgical healing when used topically.
Whatever you use it for, this herbal ally has a long standing tradition of use in various types of herbal medicine.
