Written by

C. B. Cl.

Family ► Boraginaceae.

Habitat ► Garhwal, Tibet.

Folk ► Dimok (Tibet), Ratanjot (Garhwal).

Action ► Topically antiseptic.

National Formulary of Unani Medicine has equated Onosma echioides Linn. (Boraginaceae) with Ratanjot. Geranium wallichianum D. Don. (Geraniaceae); Clausena pentaphylla DC. (Rutaceae); and Anemone obtusilo- ba D. Don. (Ranunculaceae) are also known as Ratanjot.

Ratanjot should be equated with the root of Alkanna tinctoria (Boraginaceae), known as Dyer’s or Spanish Bugloss.
