BRAHMI – Bacopa monniera


The Brahmi herb is a spreading perennial reaching 7.5cm high. This herb loves constantly moist conditions so it will happily grow in shallow water or boggy sites. Needs moderate fertilising.

Medicinal uses: There is some evidence that Brahmi will improve memory. Take 3 sprigs 10cm long twice a day. The sprigs may be added to a sandwich or made into tea and sweetened if required. Brahmi tea has a pleasant taste similar to Chinese green tea and it can be combined with this.
