Amaltas Herb/अमलतास: Amaltas Herb bark is extensively used by Ayurveda in the treatment of inflammatory swellings and as a cleaning agent for ulcers and wounds. It is believed to decrease purulent discharge and act as a local antiseptic. The fruits are also used as a laxative. Amaltas Herb is considered to maintain the balance of water content in the bowel mass to ensure smooth defecation.
This native of India, commonly known as Amaltas Herb, is one of the most beautiful of all tropical trees when it sheds its leaves and bursts into a mass of long, grape-bunches like yellow gold flowers. This is a tropical ornamental tree with a trunk consisting of hard reddish wood, growing up to 40 feet tall.
The Amaltas Herb wood is hard and heavy; it is used for cabinet, inlay work, etc. It has showy racemes, up to 2″ long, with bright, yellow, fragrant flowers. These flowers are attractive to bees and butterflies.
The fruits are dark-brown cylindrical pods, also 2′ long, which also hold the flattish, brown seeds (up to 100 in one pod) these seeds are in cells, each containing a single seed. A postal stamp was issued by the Indian Postal Department to commemorate this tree- Amaltas Herb.
The seeds are poisonous but the flesh isn’t and the blossoms have a delightful pungent smell. The pods start soft and green and then turn brown and black and hard.
The pulp from the pods was used to flavor tobacco and is a potent laxative which should not be consumed in large doses. Interestingly, cattle and goats seem to avoid the flowers and leaves of this tree, which is god for the hakims (traditional healers) who harvest all parts for traditional medicinal preparations.
The wood makes good firewood and charcoal and the trunk wood is strong and durable so fence posts and agricultural implements are made from it.
