Hypothesis: Though there is little concept of antibiotics in Ayurveda, many ayurvedic drugs show different significant results in infectious diseases. These results are comparable with modern antibiotics. So, the hypothesis is that ayurvedic herbal medicines possess antimicrobial property. Kushthaghna Mahakashaya is widely used in skin diseases. So it may be considered as it possesses antimicrobial activity against skin disease causing organisms. Objective: To evaluate antimicrobial activity of Kusthaghna Mahakashaya Ghanavati against two common pathogenic microbes Materials and Methods: Above mentioned herbal medicine was tested for antimicrobial activity against common pathogenic microbes causing skin diseases with the help of agar well method and disc diffusion method. Microbes being used for this study are Streptococcus pyogenes and Staphylococcus epidermidis. Conclusion: The results were encouraging. Herbal medicines exhibit good antimicrobial activity against targeted microbes. The details of the study are explained in the paper. Keywords: Antimicrobial, and herbal medicine
