However, it likely has hot potency, but it releases PITTA from the liver, which also makes it effective in excess PITTA disorders. Therefore, it can be used in conditions regardless to Dosha dominance.
Used widely in the treatment of Allergic respiratory, allergic skin diseases, itching skin diseases.
