Biota seed is used in Traditional Chinese Medicine to help calm the mind and open the heart. It is most often used to sedate and treat memory loss, night sweats, anxiety, constipation and irritability. In China, it is associated with long life and vitality. The wood is used in Buddhist temples both for construction work and as incense for burning during ceremonies.
