Abstract

In chronic experiment (during 3 months) was studied the influence of various vegetable aromatic substances (VAS) contents in the air upon oxidative-restoration enzymes activity in experimental animals (Wistar line male rats). On the base these experiments' results may be made a conclusion that the lack of VAS in the air involves changes in the most important enzymes of glycolysis and pentosophosphatic cycle. Provision of the atmosphere with essential lavender oil in concentration 0.58 mg/m3 (natural concentration) may correct such disturbances.
