What is Aromatherapy?
Aromatherapy uses the scent of concentrated plant oils, known as essential oils, to improve feelings of well-being. It is a popular complementary therapy used to relieve stress and produce other pleasant sensations. Aromatherapy is also practiced in some hospitals to relieve symptoms that are caused by disease or its treatment. Examples of these types of symptoms include nausea, fatigue, anxiety, and sleep problems.
The most common forms of aromatherapy are the use of diffusers or devices to inhale the scent of essential oils. Several hospitals have established programs and note improvements in patient-reported pain, anxiety, nausea, and other symptoms. For example, Rosemary may improve pain, while lavender may help reduce anxiety. Among cancer patients, lavender is commonly used to treat anxiety or sleep problems, while Peppermint is used to treat nausea. Peppermint aromatherapy appears to improve appetite.
Some studies show benefit with aromatherapy as part of therapeutic massage. In one large trial, cancer patients who received aromatherapy massage had benefits in anxiety or depression for up to 2 weeks afterwards. Aromatherapy massage was preferred over cognitive behavior therapy, and had the same benefits on distress in cancer patients.
