Shalmali, also known as the Silk Cotton Tree, has been useful in Ayurvedic medicine for thousands of years. Its botanical name is Salmalia malabarica, belonging to the Bombocaceae family. Shalmali is also referred to as Kantakadya, Picchila, Mocha, Moharasa, Raktapushpa, and Sthirayu.

In Rigveda, Shalmali wood was used to prepare chariots during marriage rituals. The parts of Shalmali used in Ayurvedic preparations are the flower, gum, stem bark, petiole, peduncle, and thorns.

Shalmali has several medicinal properties, including astringent taste, light-to-digest qualities, unctuousness, and cold potency. Shalmali root, bark, and flower are known to be coolant, improve sperm/semen, increase kapha, and be absorbent and styptic.
