  Murraya Koenigii Spreng (Rutaceae): An Overview

Murraya koenigii (L.) commonly known as meethi neem/ curry patta, family Rutaceae, is widely distributed in Himachal Pradesh (North Indian State) but remained under utilized. Murraya koenigii is used traditionally as antiemetic, antidiarrhoeal, febrifuge and blood purifier. The whole plant is considered to be a tonic and stomachic. The leaves are used extensively as a flavouring agent in curries and chutneys. The oil derived from the leaves is also applied externally to bruises and eruptions. Studies indicate that it possesses antioxidant, antibacterial, anticarcinogenic, anti-lipid peroxidative, hypoglycaemic and hypolipidemic properties.
