Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Essential oils (EOs) have played an important role in many fields, from industry to medicine. These plant-derived mixtures of volatile compounds keep attracting the interest of researchers due to their wide diversity of biological and pharmacological activities. Because of their versatility, EOs have found many pharmaceutical applications, which are the focus of this Special Issue. The use of EOs as novel alternatives to, but not limited to, antibacterial, antifungal, antiviral, antioxidant, anticancer, antidiabetic, anti-inflammatory, antiparasitic, analgesic, sedative, and spasmolytic agents will be addressed. Authors are invited to contribute their submissions as reviews, research papers, and communications.
