As a result, the goal of this study is to provide the most common herbal products, their sources, features, and potential antiviral effects in relation to COVID-19. Until March 2022, publications on herbal products with antiviral properties were searched using English key phrases in a variety of databases, including Web of Science, Google Scholar, Medline, Scopus, and PubMed, NCBI. According to several researches, there are a plethora of essential medicinal plants with antiviral activity that may be used to treat viral infections or as a supportive treatment.
