Abstract:

Ocimum sanctum Linn, also known as Tulsi in Hindi, is a tiny herb that may be found all throughout India. It is advised for the treatment of bronchitis, bronchial asthma, malaria, diarrhoea, dysentery, skin illnesses, arthritis, painful eye diseases, persistent fever, insect bites, and more. This study includes evaluation of different parameters, namely moisture content, total ash, water-soluble and acid-insoluble ash values of the raw drug. Physicochemical studies of Mother tinctures namely total solids, pH measurement, thin-layer chromatography (TLC), ultraviolet-visible spectra, wt./ml and alcohol content have also been standardised and presented for in-house mother tincture. Standardisation is useful in authentication of genuine drug.
