Abstract: Identification of traditional remedies for the skin is an important activity for the preservation of traditional knowledge and for the search of novel antimicrobial treatments against skin and soft tissue infections. A study was undertaken to document and authenticate treasured knowledge of Pawra tribe of Nandurbar district in terms of botanicals used for the topical applications on skin ailments. Antimicrobial activity of five herbal crude drugs, viz. stem of Cryptolepis buchanani Roem. & Schult., roots of Curculigo orchioides Gaertn., stem bark of Diospyros melanoxylon Roxb., leaves of Kleinia balsamica (Dalz. & Gibs.) P. Halliday and stem bark of Ougenia oojeinensis (Roxb.) Hochr. was tested against different Gram positive and Gram negative bacteria and a yeast, using agar diffusion method. Extracts at higher concentration (60 and 80 mg/l) exhibited considerable antimicrobial activity but less or no inhibition was observed in case of lower concentration (20 and 40 mg/l).
