Irrigating solutions are an essential adjunct in the root canal therapy for the complete disinfection of the root canal space. The recent trend focuses on the use of herbal extracts in endodontics owing to their advantages and minimal side effects. In view of this, we have proposed a classification system to classify herbal endodontic irrigants as currently, there is no standard classification available. This structured classification will give an overview of the diversity of herbal irrigants and also highlight the potential use of each of them. Thus, it will be easy to segregate the study and use the herbal endodontic irrigants according to the requirements. The proposed classification system shall prove to be highly beneficial to the students, researchers, and clinicians.
