The Achillea L. (Asteraceae) are known all over the world and used widely by local people as folk herbal medicine.  The species are reported to have anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, diuretic, antispasmodic vs. activities and have been used for the treatment of various ailments in Turkish traditional medicine. This work it the first study on chemical composition and biological activity of essential oil obtained from endemic plant- A. sipikorensis Hausskn. Et. Bornm evaluated for their antiradical, antimicrobial and cytotoxic activities. GC/MS analyses showed that cis- chrysanthenol (14.5%), 1, 8-cineol (10.9%), caryophyllene oxide (8.5%), borneol (8.2%), and camphor (6.1%) were the major constituents in the essential oil from aerial part of the plant. The essential oil demonstrated good antioxidant, antimicrobial and cytotoxic activities.
