The medicinal herbs are a natural source for a large variety of antioxydants. In our work, we conducted a comparative study on the aqueous extract of the sheets of two medicinal herbs which develop under the same natural conditions, The area of Casablanca located west of Morocco, and belong to the same botanical family these two plants are: Mentha pulegium (L) and Marrubium vulgare (L.) of the family of Lamiaceae. The two plants are largely used in traditional medicine by the local population. Sight their interest we evaluated the quantity of the phenolic compounds and flavonoïdes total, as well as the bacterial sensitivity which revealed important a disinfectant activity against several disease-causing agents, Moreover, the antioxydant activity of these two plants was led by the use of test VCEAC (Vitamin C Are equivalent Antioxydant Capacity). The results show that these two plants are rich in natural antioxydants, although the sheets of Mentha pulegium (L) richer than those of Marrubium vulgare (L.).
