The present study was carried out to evaluate the antioxidant (in vitro) and anti-inflammatory (in vivo) activities of ethanol fraction of Thuja occidentalis Linn. (Cupressaceae). 1, 1-Diphenyl-2-picryl-hydrazyl (DPPH) radical, superoxide anion radical, hydroxyl radical scavenging, nitric oxide scavenging and lipid peroxidation were carried out to evaluate the antioxidant potential of the extract. Anti-inflammatory activity was performed by carrageenan induced paw oedema and cotton pellet granuloma models. Both the in vitro and in vivo were found significant.
