A wound is an inevitable condition that may develop anytime during a person's lifespan and can be caused by physical trauma that causes a rupture or tear in the skin. Wounds can have a substantial impact on millions of patient's physical and mental well-being, placing a heavy financial load on them. Since ancient times, many ailments and wounds have been successfully treated using medicinal herbs. Many pharmaceutical preparations are currently in the market to treat wound injuries; however, they all have some limitation or the other. Moreover there is a dire need to explore remedies for chronic wounds as in case of diabetic patients. Besides wound infections with antibiotic-resistant bacteria can lead to prolonged debility in patients, delaying the healing process and increasing healthcare costs. Phytoconstituents, found in plants, often possess therapeutic properties that can aid in effective wound healing and management.Certain contemporary dressings absorb fluid quickly, lose their rheological properties, and become flexible, which reduces their ability to stay on the wound site. This review lists numerous medicinal plants and their active ingredients that have been shown through study to have wound-healing properties. Medicinal plants have a wide variety of Phytoconstituents like alkaloids, glycosides, terpenoids, triterpenes, and flavonoids, as their primary active components that are effective in not only wound healing but treating a wide range of illnesses.
