The present study aimed to know about the use of medicinal plants in the wounds treatment and its forms of use. This is a descriptive study with qualitative approach which was developed in a clinical nursing specialized in wound care and in a University Hospital in Maceió – Alagoas city, northeastern Brazil. Thirty patients bearers of wounds were interviewed, where 70% made use of medicinal plants to treat their injuries. The most cited species were Stryphnodendron adstringens (“barbatimão”), Hyptis pectinata (“sambacaitá”) and Schinus terebinthifolia Raddi (“aroeira”). The two etiologies most frequently cited by the participants patients were varicose ulcers and diabetic foot. The main form of preparation and administration was by bathing of the wound with tea made with dry plant leaf.
