Ayurvedic system of medicine is one of the world's oldest holistic healing systems. It was developed more than 3,000 years ago in India. This medicinal system incorporates the use of dravyas medicinal plants, which proved to be an effective means of human care. One among many such plants is Devadaru. The word 'Devadaru’ itself means the plant as ‘Devta' or ‘divine’ tree. Each part of the devadaru tree has some medicinal property and is thus commercially exploitable.
The present study was carried out to investigate morphological, microscopial and Physicochemical screening of Cedrus Deodara stem bark. To authenticate the sample of devadaru, comparison of organoleptic characteristics of stem bark was done which reveals that stem bark has some aromatic compounds. The microscopy study of cut section of stem bark was done. The observations could be considered as the reference standards in future studies.
