    Numerous wild and cultivated plants play a very vital role among the tribal healing medical practices and their interrelationship has evolved over generations of experience and practice. Ormocarpum sennoides (Willd.) DC (Family: Fabaceae) commonly known as Elumbotti in Tamil language is extremely efficacious in mending bone fractures but at present its use is known only to a handful of villagers. It contains an array of chemical constituents including alkaloids, steroids, flavonoids, tannins and glycosides. It possesses antioxidant, antibacterial, antimicrobial, anti-inflammatory, antimutagenic, antifungal and antifertility activity and this review highlights the folklore therapy and research works carried out on Ormocarpum sennoides to bring into light its ethnic importance.
