Abstract:  Himachal Pradesh, which forms a part of the western Himalaya, is a repository of medicinal and aromatic plants and the traditional knowledge associated with these plants. Utilization of plant resources in their day-to-day life has been an age-old practice of the people inhabiting this hilly state. The people living in remote and tribal areas still depend on household remedies for healthcare. The present paper provides information on the indigenous therapeutic application and other traditional uses of 9 plant species that are used by the natives of Himachal Pradesh. Information provided includes scientific name, family name (in bracket), vernacular names, distribution, and ethnobotanical use clubbed with the common uses as recorded from the relevant literature.
