Abstract Ustukhuddus (Lavandula stoechas L.) is one of the most important aromatic plants of Lamiaceae family. It is named as Jarub-i Dimagh (broom of brain) in Unani System of Medicine due to its scavenging property of evacuating morbid matters from the brain; those matters may cause neurological disorders like insomnia, amnesia, melancholia etc. The drug is used since time immemorial and was mentioned by Dioscorides in 1st Century AD for its various pharmacological properties. Various studies on its effect on nervous system have been explored by researchers which may attribute to its bioactive compounds present in it, like, glycosides, phenols, steroids, terpenes etc.
Present research paper deals with the comparative macroscopy, microscopic powder study and physicochemical studies of three different samples of Ustukhuddus. This study will be helpful for correct identification and genuineness of the drug sample.
