What is Celastrus? Celastrus paniculatus oil is a cold-pressed raw herbal oil expressed from the seeds of Celastrus panuculatis, a shrub native to India.   While Celastrus oil has been used in India for centuries it is only within the past few years that it has started to become known outside of Ayurvedic medicine, the traditional medicinal practice of India.

The oil is used to increase memory and facilitate learning. It induces a feeling of well-being and has reported aphrodisiac effects.
