A study to investigate the use of different extracts of the herb Centella asiaficain promoting wound healing on experimentally induced open wounds in albino rats was conducted. The extracts were applied externally daily on the excised areas on the back of the albino rats for 24 days and compared with control on the other side of the same animal. Aqueous, alcoholic, petroleum ether, chloroform, propylene glycol and glycosidal extract and aqueous extract with zinc oxide were tried. Only aqueous extract suspension in 5% propylene glycol favoured wound healing and the rest did not have any significant effect. The collagen content and the thickness of the epithelium are more in aqueous extract treated animals.
