Stachys lavandulifolia is from mint family and Labiatae species and grows in different parts of our country sporadically. The purpose of this study is to investigate the chemical properties of Stachys lavandulifolia Ethyl acetate extract. In this study, the Ethyl acetate extract was provided using maceration method. The extract then was defatted and solvent removal performed in a subsequent process. Some tests such as Testing the ability of neutralizing free radicals, Measuring the total phenolic compounds using the Folin–Ciocalteu method were used. The Ethyl acetate extract was consequently IC50%= 53.60 , using Testing the ability of neutralizing free radicals method. The reducing percent was calculated in terms of Ethyl acetate concentration and compared with natural and synthetic antioxidant. The results showed that with increasing concentration, antioxidant activity will be increased.
