Abstract: Investigation was carried out on two plants (Hymenostegia afzelii and Napoleanea vogelii) used in traditional medicine to establish the scientific basis of their use for treating wounds, sores, chest infections and as chewing sticks. The methanol and petroleum ether extracts of the two plants showed some levels of antimicrobial activity. The antimicrobial activity suggests that the folkloric use of these plants may be based on the antimicrobial activity.
