Abstract

This research predicted that inhalation of lavender essential therapy oil would decrease the stress level of a student. Using a between subject design, forty participants, including 5 males and 35 females (M= 20.5, SD = 1.23) were randomly assigned to solve a math problem before and after, to test their stress level. The control group demonstrated a small effect of stress reduction after inhaling the essential lavender oil. These results suggest that exposure to lavender essential oil in a stressful situation can reduce stress but should be examined further.
