This family is also called as the avocado family. The members of the genus Litsaea are also medicinally important. The bark of Litsaea sebifera is mixed with goats milk and serves as an application for sprains and bruises. The infusion of bark is used in dysentery. Wood is durable and not attacked by insects. The bark of Litsaea polyantha is used in Indian medicine. Muga silkworms are reared on its leaves.
