Palash is commonly known as the “Flame of the forest” or the “Flame tree” and various parts of the plant like flowers, bark, leaf and seed gum are used for medicinal purposes.
Palash is mainly used to get rid of worms from the stomach due to its anthelmintic activity. It can be used to manage diarrhoea as it has antimicrobial and astringent properties. It also helps to manage liver disorders due to its antioxidant properties. Taking Palash leaf powder might help in managing blood sugar levels by improving glucose metabolism in the body.
Applying Palash leaf paste on the skin helps in managing skin infections and also promotes wound healing due to its antiseptic and anti-inflammatory properties.
Palash decoction can also be used to wash pubic areas in case of vaginal infections and urinary problems due to its antifungal and antimicrobial properties.
