Medicinal herbs have bioactive compounds which are used for curing of various human diseases and also play an important role in healing. The present study involved extraction and Phytochemical screening of eight different medicinal herbs i.e. Saussurea lappa, Cichorium Intybus Linn, Inula racemosa Hook. F, Taraxacum officinale, Anacardium occidentale Linn, Asparagus officinalis Linn, Helianthus annuus Linn, and Anacyclus pyrethrum DC. The extract of herbs samples were used for the phytochemical analysis to find out phytochemical constituents in the selected medicinal herbs. The result of the phytochemical screening showed presence or absence of Alkaloids, Glycosides, Terpenoids, Steroids, Tannins, Flavonoids, Saponins, anthraquinones and reducing sugar in the selected medicinal herbs.
