Background: Wound is a common process leading to inflammation and healing process. Jasminum grandiflorum is a plant widely grown in Karnataka and is mention in ancient medical systems to promote healing. So the study was taken up to confirm the anti-inflammatory effect of the plant. Methods: Excision and incision wound models in albino rats were used to study the wound healing effect. It was mainly studied by the degree of epithelisation at various intervals and compared with control group. The strength of the wound was assessed by its wound breaking strength at the end. Results: It was found that jasmine extract increased the degree of epithelisation and thus promoting wound healing. It was also found that the wound breaking strength was more in the drug treated group compared to normal. Conclusions: Jasminum grandiflorum leaf extract is known to have wound healing property.
