Many herbal remedies have been employed in various medical system for treatment and management of different diseases. Medicinal plants and their investigation towards the phytoconstituents is much interested in today’s research. Herbal medicine is the use of medicinal plants for prevention and treatment of diseases: it ranges from traditional and popular medicines of every country to the use of standardized and tritated herbal extracts. Generally cultural rootedness enduring and widespread use in a Traditional Medical System may indicate safety, but not efficacy of treatments, especially in herbal medicine where tradition is almost completely based on remedies containing active principles at very low and ultra low concentrations, or relying on magical-energetic principles. Here, the aim of this study is to evaluate the Pharmacognostic parameters and identify the Phytoconstituents. Hypericum oblongifolium (family:- Guttiferae) is a well known in India and is one of the most versatile medicinal plants having a wide spectrum of biological activity.It is a highly useful and traditionally used medicinal herbaceous plant which is found in tropical and subtropical areas of the world. The genus Hypericum consists of about 400 species with widespread medicinal applications in a variety of health disorders.
