In India, Bael leaf is used in the worship of Shiva as its three-pronged leaf is believed to symbolize Shiva’s trident. The three-pronged leaf is also associated with the three functions of creation, preservation, and destruction.
Bael is also known as Bengal quince, bilva, golden apple, and wood apple. The fruit of the Bael tree is dried and eaten as candy, or made into a sweet drink — the leaves and shoots are consumed as vegetables.
Bael Leaf Body and Mind Benefits
Considered one of the most useful plants of India in classical Ayurveda, all parts of the Bael plant are used in tonics and medicines. Bael is “tridoshic,” meaning that it is beneficial for all the doshas — vata, pitta and kapha. It is also considered a cooling herb with laxative properties.
