Abstract

Plants have been used for their medicinal purposes right from the ancient days. The use of the plants has been mentioned in the unani manuscripts. There is always a demand for plan depended medicines, health products and cosmetics. Sesbania grandiflora (L) is a multipurpose tree with edible flowers and is a source of one of the medicinal products. The leaf extracts of S. grandiflora  was found to have high antifungal activity than antibacterial activity. Various research results suggest that the leaves are a rich source of valuable primary and secondary metabolites exhibiting the antimicrobial activity. Papaya carica is an important fruit plant whose entire plant parts are useful in many ways. The papaya gains more attention due to its high proportion of vitamins and proteolytic enzymes. Both the plants gain more attention in recent days owing to their medicinal values.
