It is very effective for fever or inflammation. Nevertheless, just handling the plant can lead to serious consequences.
- Traditionally, when used in Ayurvedic medicine, the tubers of Aconitum ferox are soaked in the cow milk. Once the roots have been purified, they are ground to a paste and used as an external application for treating nerve disorders.
