Abstract: Warlis largely depend on traditional medicine mostly based on plant remedies for a wide range of ailments and health related problems. Breast feeding is a major source of nourishment for the tribal infants and it is carried for a prolonged period. Lactation inducing remedies are commonly used by the nursing mothers to meet the nutritional requirement of their children. Some of the galactogogue are plants that are found commonly growing in the wild while others are cultivated plants, however easily available.
