This review highlights the current advances in the knowledge of safety, efficacy, quality control and challenges in the analytical characterization of plant markers used in homeopathy. Homeopathic drugs have been used since ancient times as medicines for the treatment of a range of diseases. In spite of the great advances observed in modern medicine in recent decades, plants still make an important contribution to health care. Plants contain hundreds of constituents and various analytical methods were performed to analyze the plants qualitatively for the presence of different markers present. The presence of a number of markers can be estimated by different analytical techniques such as chromatography, UV spectroscopy, High-Performance Liquid Chromatography, High-Performance Thin Layer Chromatography, Nuclear Magnetic Resonance, Mass Spectrometry etc.
