Khurasani Ajwain has a very long history of use as a medicinal herb, and has been widely cultivated to meet the demand for its use. All parts of the plant, but especially the leaves and the seeds, can be used – they are mildly pain-relieving, antispasmodic, mildly diuretic, hallucinogenic, hypnotic, pupil-dilating, narcotic and sedative. 

Khurasani Ajwain is a powerful narcotic, but, unless improperly and injudiciously used, it is only considered moderately poisonous. For sedative uses it is considered better than opium, as it does not produce constipation. It is used principally to cause sleep, and remove irregular nervous action.

Combined with other preparations mentioned in many parts of this volume, it is most excellent for gout, rheumatism, asthma, chronic cough, neuralgia, irritations of the urinary organs, etc. The leaves make fine external preparations for glandular swelling or ulcers, etc. This plant should never be used, under any circumstances, without the advice of a good ayurvedic physician.
