Herbal medicine is the use of plants or plant-based substances to treat various health conditions, including wounds. Wounds are injuries that damage the skin or other body tissues. Wound healing is a complex process that involves four phases: hemostasis, inflammation, proliferation, and remodeling. Herbal medicine can enhance wound healing by providing anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial, antioxidant, and analgesic effects. Herbal medicine can also stimulate cellular regeneration and collagen production, which are essential for tissue repair. In this review, we introduce 50 herbs that have been reported to be effective for wound healing. These plants have a long history of use based on experience, but they have also been confirmed to be effective in wound healing by modern medical methods. However, herbal medicine should not replace conventional medical care for severe wounds. These plants can be a good source for researchers to design and make more effective drugs with less side effects for wound healing.
