The word “herb” is derived from the latin word herba, meaning grass, green stalks. Herbs refer to the usable parts of the plant that have culinary, cosmetic, or medicinal uses. Generally, herbs are used for flavoring, medicine, and fragrances due to their aromatic properties. The immense therapeutic use of these herbs in medicine is due to the presence of active components such as tannin, phytosterols, saponin, flavonoids (arjunone, arjunolone, luteolin), gallic acid, and many useful polyphenols (Sawale et al., 2015).
