The Science Behind Essential Oils
We maintain an active role in the research of essential oils on various levels. Dr. Pappas regularly submits publications to reputable scientific journals like Journal of Essential Oil Research (JEOR) on the chemical properties of unusual essential oils as well as submitting articles relevant to aromatherapy to journals like Aromatherapy Journal (formerly Scentsitivity, published by the National Association for Holistic Aromatherapy). Dr. Pappas has also been involved with essential oil and aromatherapy education at local colleges and universities.
Some Scientific Journal Publications by Dr. Pappas related to essential oils. We hope you enjoy them.
