Abstract

Author(s): R. Ramasubramania raja and P. Shanmuga Pandiyan

Abutilon indicum belonging to the family of malvaceae, It is a perennial shrub.  It habitually grows
as wild plant abundantly in wastelands and seashore to 1200 m high in India. Aristolochia
bracteolate is a perennial, mostly prostrate but occasionally climbing or suberect, unpleasantly
smelling herb.  The plant is usually gathered from the wild and is used locally in traditional
medicine. Andrographis paniculata is an annual herbaceous plant in the family Acanthaceae.  The
above mentioning the three plants have been traditionally used to treat infections and some
diseases. In our study focused the preparation of ethanolic extract from above mentioning the
three plant leaves. The various concentrations like 1%, 2.5%, and 5% poly herbal cream, ointment
and gel was prepared and physically evaluated. The flow cytometric method analysed the two
fungal strains Trichophyton rubrum, Microsporum  canis and three bacterial strains
Staphylococcus aureus, Streptococcus pyogenes and Propionibacterium acnes. Finally we
reported on our plant extracts and polyherbal formulations having potential activity against these
micro organisms.
