 The medicinal plants are widely used to treat diverse ailments and diseases, including gastro-intestinal symptoms, cardiovascular diseases, skin disorders, respiratory and infectious diseases, accelerating in recent years. Plants are rich in a wide variety of secondary metabolites, such as alkaloids, tannins, flavonoids, and phenolic compounds, found in vitro to have antimicrobial properties and could assist in the discovery of novel drugs. The search for novel antimicrobial compounds, especially against multidrug-resistant pathogens from aromatic and herbal plants, is an essential line of scientific research. This review attempts to summarize the in vivo studies of the antimicrobial activity of medicinal plants and their biologically active compounds. The chemical composition of biologically active compounds with antimicrobial is also addressed.

Keywords: Antimicrobials, Herbal plants, Secondary metabolites.
