Irine Shibu Chacko* and Neha Vilas Narvekar

Mahua (Madhuca longifolia), a member of the sapotaceae family, is valued by tribal people for its delicious blooms, which also have a great deal of cultural significance in the production of several fermented and nonfermented food items. The Mahua tree is a big to medium-sized deciduous tree that typically has a broad, rounded crown and a short bole. The Madhuca longifolia tree is also regarded as a medicinal plant with antibacterial, anticancer, hepatoprotective, antiulcer, antihyperglycemic, and analgesic properties. It can be applied topically to treat skin conditions, rheumatism, headaches, chronic constipation, piles, and hemorrhoids. Mahua is a useful plant that grows in the subtropical areas of Sri Lanka, Australia, and India.The tribal people who live in the forest highly value and view it as a blessing. The Mahua tree and the Mahua drink are considered as a part of their cultural legacy. This paper aims to focus on the medicinal uses of mahua flower.
