Tagetes erecta L. is a widespread garden plant that is commonly known as the marigold, and it is widely used as a medicinal herb for its anti-inflammatory, analgesic, and anti-edematous properties, which are important for phytotherapeutic, dermatological and cosmetic applications. Essential oil from marigold has been shown to be an effective free radical scavenger, and the ethanol extract is reportedly effective against parakeratosis. The present work was aimed to perform extraction and phytochemical screening of the extract. Results revealed that the extract was rich in flavonoids, alkaloids glycosides and steroids. The phytochemicals could be utilized for health benefit properties.
