In this present investigation, drug standardization studies are undertaken for quality assurance of a homoeopathic drug Aquilegia vulgaris. In Homoeopathy, it has been reported to have clinical indications for clavus hystericus and globus hystericus in women, sleeplessness and dysmenorrhoea. To establish the drug in the system, the standardization studies are mandatory and the useful parts of the plant drug are analyzed according to the standards of Homoeopathic Pharmacopoeia of India. The pharmacognostic and physico-chemical studies of the leaf and petiole are undertaken in present study. The diagnostic macro and microscopical characters of leaf and petiole, moisture content, ash and extractive values of crude drug are presented. The formulation of mother tincture is given. Thin layer chromatography (TLC) and Ultraviolet (UV) spectrometry are also undertaken for setting the pharmacopoeial standards of the drug.
