Abstract

This research predicted that participants exposed to lavender scent would report decreased anxiety, improved mood, and feeling more relaxed. Those exposed to rosemary scent would report lower anxiety, improved mood, and increased alertness. Using a between-subjects design, 30 participants, including 18 females and 12 males (M = 21.7 yrs., SD = 2.8) were randomly assigned to a scent group and asked to rate their current mood, answer simple math questions, then inhale the assigned scent for three minutes and rate their mood again. The results suggest lavender has a calming properties while rosemary has energizing properties.
