Most of the populations in emerging countries rely on traditional medicinal plants for their healthiness care requirements. As an effect, people have established their information of these traditional remedies through their capabilities and regular clarifications. In the Libyan communities, this evidence is extremely entrenched in their nation, conveyed from one age group to the next orally and alongside gender ranks. The qualitative and quantitative screening of the chemical constituents for selected medicinal plants from Libya were carried out for Anethum graveolens”, (Dill) and “Apium graveolens L”. Whereas, the Results of quantitative estimation of percentages crude chemical components in these plants (Anethum graveolens, Apium graveolens L, the percentage yields were 80 and 90% respectively. While, 60 and 40% were for flavonoids, though, 4 and 8% were for alkaloids, however, 40 and 32% for saponins. However, the qualitative estimation showed presence for practically of chemical constituents of envisioned plants by means of flavonoids, phenols, tannins, phlobatanins, saponins, steroids, alkaloids and carbohydrates in the both of extracts (aqueous and ethanolic). Even though the Anthraquinone does not exist at all and that both of glycosides and terpenoids scarce presence in water and alcoholic extracts.
