The development of novel chemotherapeutic agents medicinal plants are the important source. Plant derived  drugs which  have  large contribution  to  the  human health  are  derived  from  the  plants. Increase in the rate of infections, antibiotic resistance in microorganisms and due to side effects of synthetic antibiotics, medicinal plants are gaining popularity over these drugs. Although medicinal plants produce slow recovery, the therapeutic use of medicinal plant is becoming popular because of their lesser side effects and low resistance in microorganisms
