Interest in medicinal plants has increased with improving extraction and processing techniques of active products andespecially with demonstrating their effectiveness in combating serious human diseases. The paper presents the way ofdetermining chlorophyll pigments, NPK chemical compounds, obtaining a tincture; external application in order tofight against an illness or to heal wounds and their effects on the human organism are studied separately.Its valorisation requires however extensive research to scientifically substantiate such a remedy, which ultimatelytransforms it from a popular remedy in a drug that is grown to serve medicine. Aristolochia clematitis L., (Birthwort) isa species of herbaceous, perennial, gabbros and smelly plant that grows in cultivated areas and bushes. This weed isone of the most powerful herbs in our flora, with many applications. The toxicity of this plant is mainly due to thearistolochic acid which is a powerful carcinogen, but also due to other compounds (De Broe ME ”exposure toaristolochic acid A, being a powerful nephrotoxin”) existing in the plant require studying regarding the possibility ofbeing used with therapeutic purposes.This is the reason why chlorophyll pigments have been determined which differ from plant to plant according to wherethe plant grows and its liveliness, the presence of certain chemical compounds, NPK content. Moreover, we also studythe soil where the plants are harvested which is highly important for their development.
