Formulated herbal oral dissolving films contain herbal plants extract and powders of Ocimum tenuiflorum (Tulsi), Glycyrrhiza glabra (yastimadhu), Curcuma longa (turmeric).These plants possess antiulcer, astringent, antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory activity. HPMC for the formulation of the films is suitable polymer and plasticizers are selected. The films were subjected to physical investigations such as uniformity of weight, folding endurance, surface pH.
