A study was designed to explore the medicinal values of commercially available raw honey of different flora of Pakistan. Samples of honey from Acacia, Ziziphus, Citrus and Brassica were collected from different areas of Pakistan and evaluated for physicochemical properties by using Official Methods of Analysis.

The wound healing activity of honey was tested and different concentrations of honey on the basis of body weight of animals were applied locally against incision, excision, dead space and burn model of rats.
