Hey, my name’s Rebecca Lazarou. I am a medicinal plant scientist, holistic therapist and educator.

It is an odd combination some may say but my drive for both comes from the same intention- the intention to understand healing.

It is an odd combination some may say but my drive for both comes from the same intention- the intention to understand healing.

When I was 16 I had a dream about medicinal plants and science, and I knew that was exactly what I want to devote my life to. 

I have quite literally followed my dreams, and it has been the most wonderful journey.

I chose to do a degree in Biomedical Sciences- Human Biology always with the intention of bridging the gap between science and natural medicines. 

I wanted to get a scientific understanding of the body so I could understand how natural medicines work.

 I then did a masters in Medicinal Natural Products and Phytochemistry, where I savoured the opportunity to get really geeky about one of my most beloved things- plant medicines. 

It is easy for me to say that was one of the best years of my life. 

Over the years I have also qualified in an array of holistic therapies too, including massage and hypnotherapy. I believe we need more than science to heal. 

Now I am a medicinal plant researcher at Kew Gardens, a science teacher at herbalism schools, and an editor for the academic journal - Journal of Herbal Medicine. I have a separate website for my academic career which you can see below.

READ MY RESEARCH

I have created Laz The Plant Scientist to serve as an educational hub, so that you can learn to heal with nature. I will also offer you the highest quality botanical products to help you get the most out of life.

I want to make it easy for people to give themselves some love and nourishment. I want to empower people to do what is best for them so they can enjoy themselves and feel great.

Ultimately, I want people to be able to find joy in life and when we heal, nurture and soothe we can do this. 

This hub is a nexus that joins my favourite things; science, herbalism, and healing. When we connect to nature and our wellbeing, we get the most out of life and I am here to help you nurture that connection.
