When we talk about this tree, I remember we make small horn out of this leave and blown. My father told me about medicinal benefit of this tree during my childhood. Immediately I checked with google for more detail. 

These trees are a sanctuary for caterpillar yearly once during rainy days. If this caterpillar bites, we used to apply coconut oil to get rid off itching. Those are unforgettable childhood memories. 

Also, those days Portia tree leaves are used as food serving leaves. But due to the technology we started using unhealthy aluminium foil, plastic paper foil. This is different story. Still in few villages, we see people using this tree for decoration of their fence. Let's see about this tree in more details below.

In Tamil, this tree is called as Poovarasu.(King of flowers). As per its name, it has many medicinal benefits for us when compared to other flowers. We can see this flower tree in the courtyard and in the gardens of many villages. This is one of the trees that live more than a hundred years long. It is found throughout India and Sri Lanka. Especially in South India. All the parts like leafflower, bark, seed are useful. Generally, the Portia tree is having four types. Desi Portia tree will have flowers throughout the year.

Portia bark: The bark will have sweet taste if the tree is more than a hundred years old and red in color. Siddhars say that this stripe is a herbal. This hundred-year-old bark is broken down and extracted juice. This juice can be taken for 154(3 mandalam in tamil) days continuously to get rid off any kind of diseases and you will get a healthy body. Both Male and female can consume. In ancient times, women had a Portia bark powder along with honey to avoid a pregnancy.
