In current study effect of essential oil of Achillea millefolium on wound healing in 60 male chickens was study as a model for wound healing. Different concentration of essential oil of Achillea millefolium tested topically on full thickness excision wound with 25 mm diameter compared to phenytoin cream (1%) as a standard healing agent and geometrical study were done for 6 days. Result of this study show that higher concentrations (12% and 18%) have significant healing properties on chicken's wound. Treated groups with higher concentrations and also positive control group that treated with phenytoin cream have significant differences with negative controls and lower concentrations (1% and 6%).
