Herbal medicine has become an item of global importance both medicinal and economical. Herbal remedies are getting increasing patient compliance as they are devoid of typical side effects of allopathic medicines. The present research has been undertaken with the aim to formulate and evaluate the herbal gels containing Murraya koenigii (curry leaves) plant leaf extract. The gel formulations were prepared by using Carbapol 940, Murraya koenigii leaf extract, propylene glycol, methyl paraben, propyl paraben, glycerine and required amount of distilled water. The skin pH (6.8-7) was maintained by drop wise addition of Tri-ethanolamine. The physical parameters of formulated gels like colour, homogeneity, pH, viscosity and spreadibility were evaluated. The gels were evaluated for antibacterial efficiency by agar diffusion method against some bacterial agents. The herbal gels showed that formulations containing Murraya koenigii leaves extract have better antibacterial activity.
