Although the such drugs in concurrent use of conventional system of medicines requires scientific background regarding its therapeutic activity, safety, toxicity, drug interactions etc. One of such drug is Hibiscus rosa sinesis belonging to the family Malvacae. The whole plant exhibit a great chain of activity like antimicrobial, antipyretic, anti-inflammatory, antiimplantation, hair growth accelerator, etc. From the consideration of ethanomedicinal documentations, the aqueous extract of the root part of selected plant is considered for anti-inflammatory activity. The investigatory study of anti-inflammatory activity on the aquaeous root extract of Hibiscus rosa sinesis was carried out using a dose of 250mg/ kg body weight in carrageenan induced paw edema in swiss albino rats .The aquaeous extract produced statistically significant & dose dependant inhibition of edema induced by carrageenan at the dose when compared to the control groups, injected into sub plantar tissue of left paw of animals up to the concentration of 1% w/v. The aquaeous extract of the root (250 mg/kg, orally) gave significant (p<0.01) reduction of rat paw edema at all assessment times.
