  • This study investigated the effects of Origanum majorana essential aroma therapy on electrical activity in the brain as evaluated by an electroencephalogram (EEG). The subjects were 29 healthy female young adults, and their sleep quality was assessed by using the Pittsburgh Sleep Quality Index. EEG electrodes were attached at the frontal, temporal, occipital, and parietal lobes according to the international 10-20 system. Subjects were exposed to organic Origanum majorana essential aroma (50 ${\mu}l$) for a period of 3 minutes each before, during, and after aromatherapy. Subjects with good sleep quality showed that Origanum majorana essential aroma increased the theta power at the frontal and temporal lobes of both cerebral hemispheres, the left parietal lobe, and the right occipital lobe. Furthermore, Origanum majorana essential aroma decreased the alpha power at the left occipital lobe and the beta power at the right temporal lobe. On the other hand, subjects with poor sleep quality showed an increase in the theta power at the temporal lobe of both cerebral hemispheres and a decrease in the alpha power at the left parietal lobe by Origanum majorana essential aroma therapy. It is concluded that Origanum majorana essential aroma therapy diminishes the state of wakefulness in the brain; alpha and beta powers were both decreased in the subjects with good sleep quality, but only alpha power was decreased in the subjects with poor sleep quality. Moreover, Origanum majorana essential aroma therapy has a sleep-inducing effect in both subjects with good sleep quality and poor sleep quality.

  • This study aimed to validate the effect of aromatherapy nursing intervention to relieve the pain using systematic review and meta-analysis. We performed a meta-analysis of studies published between January 2000 and March 2014 which were identified through KERIS, KISS, DBpia, Cochrane Library, Ovid-Medline and Pubmed. Twenty studies with 1029 participants were included in this study. Key words listed in PICO and used for the search were aroma, perfume, perfume inhalation, perfume massage, aromatherapy, pain, pain management. The results of meta-analysis demonstrated statistically significant differences not only for the overall effect but also specifically for aromatherapy nursing intervention on measures of pain. To present more evidence that support the effectiveness of aromatherapy nursing intervention on measures of pain, further research is warranted.

  • 현재 사용되고 있는 갱년기 증상 치료에는 호르몬요법등과 같은 방법이 사용 되고 있으나, 일부의 부작용으로 인하여 선진국에서는 다른 방법을 모색하는 단계에 이르렀다. 이에 본 연구자는 대체 의학적인 방법으로 고대로 부터 자연요법 으로 사용 되어진 향기요법을 사용하여 갱년기 증상에 미치는 효과를 연구 하였다. 실험 군 23명과 대조 군 22명 에게 향기요법 적용여부에 따른 차이를 조사한 결과 관절, 골격 통증에 대하여는 유의한 효과를 발견하지 못하였으나 신경, 정신 증상에 있어서는 괄목 할만 한 차이를 발견할 수 있었다.

The research design was a nonequivalent control group non-synchronized design. The subjects were a total 60 patients of each group 30 patients that were operated on under general anesthesia for upper and lower limbs surgery. The tool of the Amsterdam preoperative anxiety information scale(APAIS), systolic and diastolic blood pressure, and pulse rate levels was measured the day before surgery. The data were analyzed by the $x^2$ test Fisher's exact test, paird t-test, and the independent t-test using SPSS 20.0. Study result indicated that Lavender aroma therapy had the effect on reduction of anxiety before surgery and reduction of blood pressure, and pulse rate levels. Therefore, the study result could be used as a scientifical data that can be applied to the nursing interventions that use the aroma inhalation method and contributing to development of the holistic nursing care.

  • Purpose: The purpose of this study was to analyze the effects of aromatherapy on stress using meta-analysis. Methods: Meta-analysis was done with 21 published studies, and data were analyzed with the SAS 9.1 program. Results: Fifty eight effect size was estimated with data from 21 published studies. Overall mean effect size (ES), and mean effect size of dependence variables according to the type of intervention and subject and according to the total amount of time spent in aromatherapy were estimated. Overall mean effect size of the effects of aromatherapy was .593, and the subjective stress (.983) was most effective in the physiological faculty, followed by mean effect size of cortisol (.648) and pulse (.40). On the other hand, mean effect size of systolic blood pressure (.490) was moderate, and that of diastolic blood pressure (.401) was not large. Mean effect size of elderly (.706) cancer patients was considerable(.337). There were significant differences depending on the subjects. With regards to the types of aromatherapy, the effect size of aroma massage combined with inhalation therapy was .590, and there were no significant differences between the intervention methods. With regards to the time of intervention, $20{\sim}30$ minutes spent in aromatherapy was .730, and there were no significant differences between the times of intervention. The relationship between the effect size and intervention frequency was r=.349 and showed significant difference. Conclusion: This result suggests that aromatherapy is an effective intervention to reduce stress for subjects. Nursing intervention protocol by using aromatherapy should be developed and applied in clinical and community settings. Further studies on the effects of aromatherapy on stress should be done by using meta-analysis.
