Abstract
Plants are having more influence on man’s life due to their applications in the areas like medicine, food and agro industry. Every plant is like a treasure and man has to explore its usefulness. Most of the plants are utilized in their natural form with minimum benefits. So the potentiality of the plant has to be analyzed for its derivatives and be adapted for the advantage of man. In this paper, Thevetia peruviana plant, commonly known as Yellow oleander has been taken for study and the applications of its derivatives have been discussed. In spite of the toxicity of the plant, it has been found to be useful in several spheres of life. Its derivatives are categorized into latex, stem bark, seed, seed oil and seed cake which can be used for specific applications. Seed cake can be used as an ingredient in livestock feed after detoxification. So detoxification methods have been also discussed.
