Abstract: Analgesics are pain relievers. Analgesics are of two classes: opioids and non-opioids. NSAIDs and paracetamol come under non opioids class and are taken to relieve pain during inflammation by decreasing body’s internal temperature. Certain lifelong pain conditions like rheumatoid arthritis, wisdom teeth pain, accidental pain, after surgery pain, back pain, frequent body pain needs dose of analgesics in a required time period. In such conditions person already know about duration of analgesics. Long term usage of allopathic analgesics has several adverse effects. Thus during such long term pain time consumption of medicinal plants and traditional ayurveda based product is more preferable. Present review focuses on few medicinally important plants having anti-inflammatory and analgesic properties such as: Moringa oleifera and Senna auriculata as a chief medicinal source. Other than these Eucalyptus globules, Ricinus communis, Syzygium aromaticum L. Trachyspermum ammi, Zingiber officinale and Vitex negundo, Cinnamomum camphora and Plumbago zeylanica are also reported to have these properties. This review is less based on botanical identity of mentioned medicinal plants and more based on their therapeutic and medicinal analgesic and anti-inflammatory properties to relieve pain.
