Lavender, roman chamomile, and neroli essential oils have been found to be beneficial for anxiety and sleep in patients going through a surgical procedure.
The aromatherapy blend was in a ratio of 6 : 2 : 0.5 for lavender: roman chamomile: neroli.
Participants received 10 treatments before percutaneous coronary intervention/PCI (formerly known as angioplasty with stent) and the same essential oil blend was inhaled another 10 times after the procedure.
The purpose of this study was to investigate the effects of aromatherapy on the anxiety, sleep, and blood pressure (BP) of percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) patients in an intensive care unit (ICU). Fifty-six patients with PCI in ICU were evenly allocated to either the aromatherapy or conventional nursing care.
Outcome measures patients’ state anxiety, sleeping quality, and BP (blood pressure).
The aromatherapy group showed significantly low anxiety and improving sleep quality compared with conventional nursing intervention.
If these surgical patients could see these results imagine how these essential oils could help you if you suffer from anxiety and/or sleep issues.
