Abstract: The present investigation encompasses antibacterial potential of three medicinal plants used by the tribals of Nilgiris for the treatment of various skin ailments. About 18 extracts at three concentrations (10, 5, 2.5 mg/ml) of different plant parts of Siegesbeckia orientalis Linn., Berberis tinctoria Lesch. and Justicia betonica Linn. were tested against pathogenic bacteria, viz. Aeromonas hydrophila, Escherichia coli, Klebsiella pneumoniae, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Salmonella typhi, Salmonella sp., Staphylococcus aureus, Vibrio cholerae and V. parahemolyticus. All the extracts exhibited broader antibacterial activity against the tested pathogens.
