A medicinal plant is a plant that humans have used or are still using today to treat or relieve the symptoms of and illness or disease. Plants that are considered medicinal often share attributes with conventional medications made by pharmaceutical companies. Such plants are found all over the world and are used in a wide variety of homeopathic and herbal remedies.

Many of the compounds found in medicinal plants, such as the camphor found in the cinnamomum camphora plant, are used in medications that can be bought from modern-day drugstores. Like other pharmacological substances, medicinal plants can also have negative interactions with each other and with other medications.
