This plant has many uses, such as medicinal abilities as an anti-bacterial and anti-coagulant. It produces a reddish dye called brazilin, which is used for dyeing fabric and making red paints and inks. The wood is slightly lighter in color than Caesalpinia echinata (Brazilwood) and other members of the Caesalpinia genus, but the same tinctorial principle appears to be common in all these.
