The researchers have been attracted toward the use of herbs and active components as they are natural resources which have antioxidant activity. Antioxidants are compounds that are effective in different ways by the reaction of free radicals of oxygen and nitrogen active biomolecules (such as proteins, amino acids, lipids and DNA) to prevent and reduce damage or cell death, cardiovascular disease and cancers. In this study, after extraction of oil from seeds of chamomile to measure the antioxidant activity of radical test 2 and ''''2-diphenyl-1-Picrylhydrazyl (DPPH) and system-carotene / linoleic acid was used. The results showed that the test of DPPH, IC50 values, showed that the antioxidant power of the oil is not significant compared to BHT, but in the case of beta-carotene / linoleic acid inhibits the activity of the oil sample percentage is 29%. The results show that the oils of this plant do not show a significant antioxidant power.
