Because of the presence of major phytoconstituents, all parts of the plant are useful for the treatment of various diseases or disorders such as cancer, cardiac diseases, diabetes, anxiety, depression, ulcer, GI diseases, and possess many pharmacological activities such as anti-oxidant, anti-hypercholesterolemia, anti-diarrhoeal, anti-inflammatory, anti-fungal, antibacterial, and others. In ancient times, the plant was also utilised for its therapeutic purpose, and because it has fragrant properties, it is used in the perfumery industry, as a mouth refresher, and to remove undesirable odours from the body and mouth.
