Natural History

This species may have medicinal properties, and has been used as a fish poison. (http://squid2.laughingsquid.net/hosts/herbweb.com /herbage/A21311.htm)

In Australia the tree's main use has been as an Aboriginal fish poison, but it has been useful medicinally elsewhere, especially in India. Juice from the fresh leaves is regarded as having medicinal value. The roots are regarded as a contraceptive. Cribb (1981).
