The leaves of some plants are flamed and used to dress injured skin, to stimulate healing and to ward off infection. This study aims to determine antioxidant activities of Plantago lanceolata L., Plantago major L. ssp. major, Rubus hirtus Waldst& Kit., Sambucus ebulus L., Morus alba L. and Hedera helix L., which grown in Düzce and its surroundings and are used for anti-inflammatory purposes, and especially for wound-healing. The total phenolic compound of these plants was also evaluated. In order to determine the antioxidant compounds and antioxidant capacity of these plants, different in vitro methods. Resulting from our study, while P. lanceolata, R. hirtus, S. ebulus and P.major ssp. major had similarities in terms of phenolic compounds content, M. alba and H. helix were found to have relatively low content of phenolic compounds. In general, Plantago species and R. hirtus showed high antioxidant activities.
