Members of the genus enjoy a number of traditional uses all over the world. Various species are widely used in the treatment of different ailments like aphthae, bleeding piles, cough, diarrhea, dysentery, dyspepsia, epigastria, epistaxis, gonorrhea, haemorrhages, leprosy, malaria, rheumatism, scabies, scalding urine, stomach ache, syphilis, traumatic injuries, and ulcers, etc. Species are also used for their analgesic, anthelmintic, antiinflammatory, antimicrobial, antipyretic, anti-spermicidal, anti-ulcerogenic, aphrodisiac, astringent, expectorant, and larvicidal activities in traditional medicine. Some species are already validated through different pharmacological investigations, and others require scientific investigations to rationalize their traditional uses.
