As well the disease has sown the seed of science of treatment from the very beginning of human life, Ayurveda has developed a wide range of therapeutic measures to combat illness. After primary review of textual references, it was found that laksha churna has a wound healing property. It has kashaya, tikta and madhura rasa, having balya, varnya, dahashamaka, dusta vrana-vishodhani and krimihara property. Palankasha, alakta, yava, vrikshamaya and jatu are the synonyms of laksha. In spite of vast development of modern science, vrana ropaka activity of laksha churna is not ignorable even in modern era. It is economically cheap and without any side effect in comparison to modern drugs. It is being used for pharmaceutical and food coatings due to its organic and non-toxic properties.
