Soumya medicinal plant is a leafless jointed shrub. It is about 1 m tall with green irregular branches. The flowers of this plant are white or pale greenish-white with a fragrant smell. The fruits or follicles of this medicinal plant are thinly coriaceous, straight and tapering at both ends. These are 10 cms to 12 cms long which contain flat and ovate seeds in it.
A number of medicines are prepared from Soumya plant parts for the treatment of different diseases. In some parts of India, a dilute extract of the whole plant is used internally to cure rheumatic pains whereas in some other parts of India an aqueous extract of the stem is given orally for the treatment of bone fractures. The dried stem is also used as an emetic. An infusion of the roots is reportedly given to persons bitten by rabid dogs. The stem of Soumya plants is sometimes used as for the treatment of dyspnoea disease in Ayurveda. Apart from this medicinal plant it is also used for the treatment of cardiac diseases, fever, cold, oedema, mental disorders and as a rejuvenator. However, this is a very strong drug and should be used only under the supervision of doctors.
