Abstract


Herbs had been priced for their medicinal, flavoring and aromatic qualities for centuries, the synthetic products of the modern age surpassed their importance, for a while. However, the blind dependence on synthetics is over and people are returning to the naturals with hope of safety and security. In this respective work two medicinal plants Ocimum sanctum and Aloe barbadensis were selected and cultivated under the effect of two different kinds of fertilizers and the effect of fertilizers was determined basing upon the phytochemicals present in them when compared to control plant. The medicinal values of these plants were attributed by the presence of one or more of the detected metabolites and simultaneously the distinguishing was made between inorganic and organic fertilizer usage. The aqueous extracts of Ocimum sanctum and Aloe barbadensis were screened for secondary metabolites. The extracts were revealed the presence of alkaloids, saponins, tannins, steroids, terpenoids, flavonoids, glycosides, carbohydrates, protein, anthraquinones, and fatty acids. Whereas some phytochemicals where absent in fertilizer effected plants.
