Gotu Kola

Essentially Natural always deliver high-quality herbs and to top that off, speedy (very speedy) delivery. I try to support locally, but always struggle to find what I need. This herb was one of those “hard to find” locally herbs. Essentially Natural came to my rescue once again.

I use it as a sedative before bed, and I wake up feeling good and ever ready to tackle the next day. It is relaxing and adaptogenic.
