The present study was carried out for evaluation of TLC fingerprint profiles of volatile oils/essential oils of the each ingredient of the polyherbal formulation of Trikatu churna and comparison of the volatile oil of the finished product or formulation as such. Essential oils/volatile oil contents are characteristic to the ingredients or raw botanicals to identify them easily. In the raw botanicals, where ever its presence is possible and its verification through the TLC/HPTLC fingerprint profile is the one of the best ways to identify and evaluate the quality of the finished formulation in the course of development of a standardization protocol as a quality control tool.
