Abstract:

Medicinal plants are the gift of nature to mankind. Since the dawn of human civilization, medicinal plants are being used for treating different ailments of human being in traditional and recognized system of health care. Though medicinal plants secured an important position for their therapeutic, fragrance and flavoring qualities for generations, but the discovery of synthetic drugs overshadowed it for a while. Due to increase in awareness about health and hygiene, people are found to be more inclined towards herbal products especially those derived from plants. Therefore, the systematic conservation, multiplication and large scale cultivation of medicinal plants became a global concern. The present study is based on the literature analysis of various scientific publications (books, research papers, short notes) and provides a widespread knowledge about the usage of plants and their parts for the treatment of various diseases in India.
