Felšöciová S, Kačániová M, Horská E, Vukovič N, Hleba L, Petrová J, Rovná K, Stričík M, Hajduová Z. Antifungal activity of essential oils against selected terverticillate penicillia. Ann Agric Environ Med. 2015;22(1):38-42. PMID: 25780826

The aim of this study was to screen 15 essential oils against five Penicillium species: P. brevicompactum, P. citrinum, P. crustosum, P. expansum and P. griseofulvum. There were five essential oils of the 15 examined which showed a hopeful antifungal activity: Pimpinella anisum, Chamomilla recutita L., Thymus vulgaris, Origanum vulgare L. The most hopeful antifungal activity and killing effect against all tested penicillia was found to be Origanum vulgare L. and Pimpinella anisum.
