1) Bhārgī (भार्गी) is a Sanskrit word referring to the “blue fountain bush”, a plant species from the Lamiaceae (mint/deadnettle) family, and is used throughout Āyurvedic literature such as the Caraka-saṃhitā. The official botanical name of the plant is Rotheca serrata and is commonly known in English as the “beetle killer”, among others. The word Bhārgī is derived from Bharga, meaning “effulgence, splendour”
2) Bhārgī (भार्गी):—Another name for Bhāraṅgī, a medicinal plant (Clerodendrum serratum) used in the treatment of fever (jvara), as described in the Jvaracikitsā (or “the treatment of fever”) which is part of the 7th-century Mādhavacikitsā, a Sanskrit classical work on Āyurveda. In this work, the plant is mentioned being part of the Bṛhatyādigaṇa group of medicinal drugs. The synonym was identified in the Rājanighaṇṭu (verses 5.149-150), which is a 13th-century medicinal thesaurus.Source: Wisdom Library: Āyurveda and botany
