As a result of the plant's importance in the medical field, as well as its aesthetic and therapeutic uses, its extraction is important. An alcoholic extract of Bhringraj was reported to be non-toxic in rat and mice, when the minimum fatal dosage is more than 2.0 gram/kilogram administered orally and intra-peritoneally in rats.
