  • Introduction

    The word "medicinal plant" includes different plant kinds used in herbalism ("herbology" or "herbal medicine"), the use of crops for medicinal purposes, and the study of such uses.The word ' herb ' was obtained from the Latin word ' herba ' and from the ancient French term ' herbe. ‘Now for a few days, herb relates to any portion of the plant such as fruit, seed, stem, bark, flower, leaf, stigma, or root, as well as a non-woody plant.
    We are moving away from nature as our lifestyle is now becoming techno-savvy. Although we are unable to flee nature because we are part of nature.Since herbs are natural products they are free from side effects, they are relatively secure, environmentally friendly and accessible locally.Traditionally, many herbs are used for various seasonal ailments. To save human life, they need to be promoted.These herbal products are the symbol of safety today, as opposed to synthetic drugs, which are considered unsafe for humans and the environment.Although herbs have been priced for their medicinal, flavoring and aromatic characteristics for centuries; modern age synthetic products have exceeded their significance for a while. However, the blind reliance on synthetics is over, and with the hope of safety and security, individuals return to the natural. It is time for them to be promoted worldwide.
