The possibility of using enzymatic test systems in vitro to determine the biological activity of essential oils and comparative analysis of different fractions of essential oil were shown. Essential oil of Abies Sibirica and Pinus Sibirica activated the enzymes catalase and glutationreductase and inhibited acetylcholinesterase, due to antioxidant and neuroprotective properties of essential oil. It was found that in the process of isolation procedure of essential oils from raw materials, biological activity of essential oils can either increase or decrease, what connecting with composition of individual fractions of essential oil.
