From Research to Real World Application: an Interview with Marija Lesjak

by | Aromatherapy, General, Research

When reading research papers we have realized that very often there is a gap, sometimes even a chasm, between how scientists understand the use of essential oils and how the oils are actually used. To address this we wanted to communicate directly with the researchers and bring the two worlds closer together.  In this new interview series, Robert sits down with prominent researchers who study the effects of essential oils, and talks to them about their work and how it fits into the greater scheme of aromatherapy.

Marija Lesjak is a full professor at the University of Novi Sad, Faculty of Sciences in Serbia. She shared her scientific work on the biological activity of plants and their potential use in pharmaceuticals, cosmetics, and foods. She emphasized the need for more research and open-mindedness towards alternative medicine, highlighting the challenges faced by alternative medicine. Marija and Robert also discussed the potential applications of essential oils, particularly in treating stomach infections ( H. pylori in particular) and skin conditions.
