This study aims to inventory the diversity of medicinal plants used by the people of Kampung adat Banceuy. The research method was done by direct observation and depth interviews with key informants and respondents. The results show that society has used 48 species (28 families) of medicinal plants for generations. The sources of plants are obtained from around settlements that grow wildly or from their garden. The leaf is the most used plant organ. Herbs are the most common plant habitus used. Medicinal plants were used directly or by processing traditionally first.
