    Essential oils are complex mixtures of biologically active substances used since a long time as flavouring agents and constituents of number of commercial products. Currently, their importance is more highlighted due to their increasing demand for food, cosmetics and pharmaceutical industries. Recent scientific literature revealed the antimicrobial, antifungal and antioxidant potential of essential oils. In view of the multiple applications of essential oils, their characterization based on their chemical profiles, is of great importance. On the other hand Albania is a very important country for Maps and their essential oils due to their high quality. Because of the lack of an accredited laboratory in the country the exporters trade them with low prices which are affected in the economy of the country. That’s why we analysed and validated a Gas/Fid method for Satureja Montana essential oil, in order to be able to analyze their chemical contents. In the present study, some of most important MAPS of Albania were screened for the isolation of essential oils. The hydro-distilled essential oils were characterized for their physico-chemical and biological activities. GC and GC-MS analysis of the chemical constituents of the isolated oils mainly revealed the presence of monoterpene hydrocarbons, sesquiterpene hydrocarbons, oxygenated monoterpenes, and oxygenated sesquiterpenes. Satureja montana The investigated essential oils exhibited good antioxidant, antifungal and antimicrobial activities as measured by different in-vitro assays and experimental models.
