History:
Found growing in hot, swampy regions around the world, from India to the southern United States, the herb gotu kola (Centella asiatica) has a storied past.Centuries ago, practitioners of the ancient Hindu system of healing known as Ayurveda began using this creeping perennial therapeutically. It was the leaves--fan-shaped when grown in water but small and thin when grown on land--that were most useful for medicinal purposes, including the control of skin problems. By the l880s, gotu kola's reputation for treating skin and other disorders had spread throughout Asia to Europe.
Due to the similarity in their names, gotu kola is sometimes confused with kola nut, a caffeine-containing stimulant used to produce cola beverages. In fact, the two are not related.
