Factors influencing use of medicinal herbs
Sabina Krsnik, Karmen Erjavec, 2024

Opis: In countries with a long tradition of folk herbal medicine that is not integrated into the health system, consumer interest in medicinal herbs has increased. Considering the lack of knowledge about the factors influencing the use of medicinal herbs, the aim of this study was to identify the most important factors of herbal use in Slovenia. Factors were assessed in June 2023 using a nationwide sample (N = 508). Results show that almost half of the respondents are not familiar with medicinal herbs, however, 86% use them at least a few times a year. The “familiarity with medicinal herbs” had the strongest direct effect on the use of medicinal herbs, followed by the “social impact of the herbalist” and the “perceived usefulness of medicinal herbs.” There is a need to create a new approach to integrative medicine policy and the use of medicinal herbs in Slovenia by developing educational programs, training professionals, establishing guidelines for the safe and effective use of herbs, and advocating for reimbursement by health insurance companies.

Revitalization of the Slovenian herbal market?
Sabina Krsnik, Karmen Erjavec, 2021

Opis: Purpose – The study aims to identify the needs, barriers, and measures relevant for the revitalization of the herbal market in Slovenia. Design/Methodology/Approach – A mixed-methods approach was used in the study, with a quantitative online survey of Slovenian herbalists (N = 217) and in-depth interviews conducted with key Slovenian stakeholders in the field of herbalism (N = 18). Findings and Implications – Most Slovenian herbalists grow herbs as a hobby or as a supplementary farm activity; they have little land for growing herbs and thus also generate a low income. Most of them sell their products directly to consumers, with only one tenth selling herbs to retailers. As many as three quarters of the respondents are not a part of any organization which, along with lower prices, is the main barrier to a market revitalization. The in-depth interviews revealed a lack of interest in collaboration among herbalists because they find the existing situation to be sufficient to a certain extent, as demand is greater than their supply. The results show no evidence of an herbal market as it existed before Slovenia’s independence. Limitations – Since there is no census of Slovenian herbalists, the sample is not representative. Originality – There is a lack of understanding of the barriers to and measures for revitalizing the herbal market, especially in developed countries whose market was well developed decades ago, such as Slovenia.
