What is ashtagandha and what is it made of?
Where is it mentioned in the scriptures?
Ashtagandha is a mixture of eight ingredients available in granules or powder and is used in deity worshipping and bathing. Some use it for tilak. It is said when Bhagavan Krishna was on earth the smell of Ashtagandha was emanating from Him. Well Ashtagandha came after that of course.
I have not found a scripture specifically mentioning Ashtagandha and its use, also not its exact composition. Some use other ingredients. That is why I would like to know if someone knows where Ashtagandha is described in the scriptures with its composition?
