The Ayurvedic name of this plant, “Magzsudhi”, means “brain clearer”. In Ayurvedic medicine, Celastrus is used to improve the mental capabilities of developmentally disabled children. It is also useful as a tonic for the healthy brain, with many antioxidant properties.
Celastrus is helpful with spiritual and meditative work that requires mental acuity and recall, such as Qabalah, sacred geometry, or complex chanting. Celastrus is also helpful for meditations on the flow of consciousness and thought.
