However, after the preparation of the ointment from the peels fine powder, four different samples of rats were burnt and treated. The result of the extract and the analysis showed that pomegranate is reach by an active constituent such as Saponin, Glycosides, Steroids and Terpenoid which play the main role in healing the burn wounds. This claimed is supported by the result of the treatment observations of the rats' samples which proof that the efficiency of using pomegranate ointment in curing the wounds is higher and faster than the commercial ointment. As conclusion the objective of this study has been achieved, and positive result has been obtained.
