In folk medicine the tea preparation of the aerial parts of the plant is used for the treatment of abdominal colic, headache, diabetes and as an astringent (Al-Khalil 1995). In experimental animal models the aqueous extract of the plant exhibited antispasmodic, anorexic, antidiabetic and hypolipidemic effects (Garaibeh 1989, Rasekh 2001).
