Wood is dried in the sun for about six months or heated in a confined space for seven to fifteen days before being used as processed material.





Sonosiso is famous for making furniture, musical instruments, plywood, agricultural implements, floors and as bentwood. Core wood is yellow to dark brown, white sap becomes pale brownish white. Heartwood is durable and resistant to mold. D sissoo is known to contain dalbergichromene neoflavonoid in bark and wood core.

Tree branches are traditionally chewed as toothbrushes and then split as tongue cleansers, to treat skin disorders and gastric related problems. The ethanol extract of sonosiso fruit showed the effect of moluskicide on freshwater snail eggs Biomphalaria pfeifferi. The juice from this plant is a strong herb for mixed plaster walls.
