The aims of this study were to find the clinical evidence of anti stress effects of aromatherapy essential oils. We conducted to verify the anti stress mechanism and effects of inhalation of essential oils by human laboratory study. The subjects were 95 normotensive healthy adults, 33 in experimental group, 31 in placebo group and 31 in control group. The experimental treatment was to inhale the aromatherapy EO, mixture of Lavender and Ylangylang (1:1 ratio). The placebo treatment was to inhale artificial flavor. To evoke the stress situation, we gave the white noise and subtraction calculation stressor to subjects in laboratory room. After exposure to stressful situation, we gave the experimental treatment, placebo treatment for 10 minutes. And then BP, PR and serum cortisol level were measured to find the acute effects of aromatherapy EO inhalation in post experiment 10 minutes, 30 minutes. After exposure to stressful situation, subjects were increasing the BP, PR, and serum cortisol as a stressor indicator. The aromatherapy EO inhalation was significantly effective to reduce the systole, diastole after 10 minute EO inhalation, and was significantly effective to reduce the systole, serum cortisol after 30 minute EO inhalation. Conclusively, the aromatherapy was effective to modulate to stressful situation.
