ABSTRACT
Malunggay (M. oleifera) leaves are used wildly in our country for cooking as good source of nutrients. They are highly nutritious, being a significant source of Vitambeta-carotein C, protein, iron and potassium. It is best known as the excellent natural energy booster. The leaves are cooked and used like spinach. In addition to being used fresh as a substitute for spinach, its leaves are commonly dried and crushed into a powder, and used in soups and sauces. It has small leaves that can produce extracts which can be used in many ways such as curing illnesses and even open wounds. In relation to this, this study is conducted to determine the feasibility of fresh malunggay leaves as a substitute medicine in curing open wounds. The researcher had set specifically producing ointment for open wounds put of malunggay leaves which will be proven to be effective and meet a lower cost than that of commercial ointments. The amount of malunggay leaves to be used is set to be the independent variable to affect the visibility of healing change on the open wound as its dependent variable. The study focused through the efficiency of the malunggay leaves extract as a substitute medicine in curing open wounds. In this manner, this product is compared to the commercial one.

The product was produced by collecting all the needed materials. Then the malunggay leaves were squeezed with a small amount of water which served as its extraction process. After squeezing, it will be strained using a kitchen strainer, leaving a green liquid which is the malunggay extract. The petroleum jelly was melted with low heat. When the petroleum jelly is fully melted, the extract was poured and stirred for several minutes. After some few minutes, a green solution of malunggay extract and petroleum jelly was formed and then placed in the sterilized container. After another few minutes, the solution will start to solidify forming the plasma like product. Putting the product in the refrigerator fastens the cooling process.

To the first test for the feasibility of the...
