Studies of herbs as producers of biologically active compounds need comparative evaluation of natural antioxidants accumulation and minerals. The aim of the present study was characterization of some antioxidantal parameters of aromatic and medicinal plants representa-tives of several genus: Prunella, Thymus, Melissa officinale and Myrtees, − from the Nikitan botanic garden collection. Total antioxidant activity and concentration of the most important antioxidants (polyphenols) decreased according to: Myrtees = Melissa > Thymus > Prunella Interva-rietal differences of these parameters for Thymus and Prunella were statistically insignificant. The highest levels of selenium and water soluble minerals happened to be typical for Prunella genus, the lowest − for Thymus. Total antioxidant activity and polyphenol content of the above herbs did not correlate with selenium accumulation level and concentration of water soluble minerals. The latter parameter was the highest for Prunella grandiflora (L.) Jack and the lowest for Myrtees communis L. leaves.
