Abstract:  The authors surveyed Lonar, Sindkhed Raja and Dewulgaon Raja tehsils of Buldhana district (Maharashtra) from viewpoint of plant-based healthcare practices amongst the rural and tribal people. This paper includes information on 30 species belonging to 29 genera and 22 families of angiosperms. This study comprises information on traditional formulations, mode of administration and the ailments for which they are effective, apart from botanical and local plant names. The medicines consist of a sole drug or a principal drug in the form of decoction, extract, oil, powder and pellets. These are prepared from leaves, petiole, bark, stem, roots, flowers, seeds, latex or entire plants. In few cases, application of latex or fresh parts like flowers or simply contact of plant parts are noted. They are used for as many as 26 human diseases. Out of 30 species, 17 have been recorded for additional information from this region. The plant species are desired for further modern scientific screening.
