The World Health Organisation (WHO) estimated that 80% of the population of developing countries rely on traditional medicines, mostly plant drugs, for their primary health care needs. Agnimantha [Clerodendrum phlomidis Linn.f. Syn. C. multiflorum (Burm.f.) O.kuntze, Clerodendrum phlomoides Linn.f.], family verbenaceae,            is one of the ingredient of Dashamoola1. In traditional systems of medicine, leaves, stem, aerial parts and root of the plant are used in Shotha (inflammation), Prameha (glycosuria), Jwara (coryza), Upadamsha (gonorrhea), Sthaulya (obesity) etc. Various research has been carried out for isolation of chemical constituents and therapeutic potential of Clerodendrum phlomidis. This review is an attempt to compile the phytochemical and pharmacological activity Of Clerodendrum phlomidis.
