Medicinal plants are still the weak source of active principles known by their therapeutic properties, which leads us to the conservation of the biodiversity of local plant species. To this end we have carried out a phytochemical screening of two medicinal plants most used in the region of El Tarf. The present work was carried out in the laboratory of chemistry at the University of El Tarf in order to realize phytochemical analyses of some active principles of two medicinal plants, the Rosemary family of Lamiaceae (Rosmarinus officinalis) and the Chamomile family of Asteraceae (Anthémis nobili) are aromatic plants still used in the traditional medicine of many countries as antiseptic, antiviral, antispasmodic, stomatal, expectorant, in aromatic or in infusion. The results obtained show that the phytochemical screening revealed the presence of alkaloids, flavonoids, saponins, volatile oils, tannins and anthocyanins.
