Medicinal Properties: Before listing the medicinal properties of Agnishikha or Fire Lily or Gloriosa Superba, I must tell you that most of these medicinal properties are not recognized by modern medicine. They are as seen practiced among tribes;
Other Uses: These can be rather called misuses. The various parts of Agnishikha or Fire Lily or Gloriosa Superba, particularly it's tubers, were and still are, used for murders, suicides, homicides and forced abortions.
Amazing Uses: It is also believed that Gloriosa Superba or Agnishikha can pull out foreign objects like glass pieces, thorn-heads, splinters etc. from inside the body even if they have travelled deep with the blood-stream. For this, one needs to clear the path by widening the incision or the vent through which the foreign object had entered the body and then apply the extract around the incision. After some time (the length of time depends on the distance the object has travelled in), the object will traverse back all the path and will come out of the same incision through which it entered.
