Commonly used to seal wounds on cactus, succulents and other juicy plants, is also an essential nutrient.

This is from The Teachings of Don Juan: A Yaqui Way of Knowledge by Carlos Castaneda:

 

Every time we came to a peyote plant, he squatted in front of it and very gently cut off the top with his short, serrated knife. He made an incision level with the ground, and, sprinkled the “wound”, as he called it, with pure sulphur powder which he carried in a leather sack. He held the fresh button in his left hand and spread the powder with his right hand. Then he stood up and handed me the button, which I received with both hands, as he had prescribed, and placed inside the bag. “Stand erect and don’t let the bag touch the ground or the bushes or anything else,” he said repeatedly, as though he thought I would forget.

 

IMO you're better off not using it if you don't have to
