    The flower bud is used almost exclusively for the treatment of sinus conges- tion and sinus headaches, and is taken orally or ap- plied topically. Magnolia bark, on the other hand, has a very wide range of applications as will be detailed in the present review; it has been used in Chinese and Japanese traditional medicines for the treatment of gastrointestinal (GI) disorders, anxiety, depression, nervous disorders, asthma, and allergic disease, as well for the alleviation of headaches, muscular pain, and fever.
