Medicinal plants have had a crucial role in human culture and civilization. The rhizomes of the plant Nervilia aragoana were collected, washed, shade dried and powdered. Ethanol extract ether extract and methanol extract (from the marc of ether extract) were prepared by simple maceration process and soxhalation method. All the extracts were concentrated and analyzed using Gas Chromatography Mass Spectroscopy for the identification of biochemical components present in the rhizome of N. aragoana. A wide range of fatty acids, heterocyclic compound which are having anti fungal anti inflammatory antibiotic activity, skin conditioning property were identified so that it can be recommended as a plant of phytopharmaceutical importance.
