Abstract

The main aim of this study was to investigate the effects of inhaled lavender aromatherapy on depression and anxiety levels among postmenopausal women. A randomized clinical trial was performed in which 46 postmenopausal women received 2 inhaled lavender essence or distilled water 20 minutes nightly before bedtime for 4 successive weeks. Depression and anxiety mean scores decreased in the lavender group compared with controls, providing evidence that lavender aromatherapy may be an effective noninvasive treatment during the postmenopausal stage.
