Abstract

The aim of this work is to study the toxicological properties of three aromatic plants: Thymus vulgaris, Mentha spicata and Citrus limonum. This study was performed on albino mouses by determining the median lethal dose orally. The mouses were divided into six batches of ten each (5 males and 5 females) and received doses of plant species (added to an adjuvant) of 500 to 1000mg/kg. The results obtained show that the tested plant species have an oral toxicity.
