The creeping annual herb Bhringraj is a member of the Asteraceae family, or daisy family, along with Electric Daisies and Earth Apples.

Also called the False Daisy and Bhringoraj, the Indian native shoots quick-growing hairy leaves in muddy flats which Ayurvedic medicine uses to remedy inflammation, hair growth, liver detox,  and respiratory disorders. This supposed health benefit is thanks to the bitter, pungent leaves’ alkaloid ecliptine properties. 

You’ll find ​​Bhringraj in full bloom throughout late summer and early fall, growing easily in a container put in full sun or part shade. Growing up to 3 ft. tall, the herb grows long stalks with small, white flowers. Extract the leaves’ oil for hair growth application, or juice the leaves for stimulating digestive fire and liver detoxification!
