Abstract
Workplace stress-related illness is a serious issue, and consequently many stress reduction methods have been investigated. Aromatherapy is especially for populations that work under high stress. Elementary school teachers are a high-stress working population in Taiwan. In this study, fifty-four elementary school teachers were recruited to evaluate aromatherapy performance on stress reduction. Bergamot essential oil was used for aromatherapy spray for 10 minutes. Blood pressure and autonomic nervous system parameters were recorded 5 minutes before and after the application of the aroma spray. Results showed that there were significant decreases in blood pressure, heart rate, LF power percentage, and LF/HF while there were increases in heart rate variability and HF power percentage (P < .001(∗∗∗)) after application of the aromatherapy spray. Further analysis was investigated by dividing subjects into three background variables (position variables, age variables, gender variables) and anxiety degree groups. All parameters were significantly different for most subgroups, except for the substitute teachers and the light-anxiety group. Parasympathetic nervous system activation was measured after aromatherapy in this study. It encouraged further study for other stress working population by aromatherapy.

Aromatherapy has been around for thousands of years as the tiny molecules of the essential oils enter the nose they travel after absorption in the mucus in to the blood stream and all over the body, and this research below is another indication of many use of aromatherapy:

Abstract
Objectives  To evaluate the effects of the aroma of essential oil of lavender against placebo on subjects’ pain perceptions and levels of anxiety when undergoing elective cosmetic facial injections of botulinum toxin type A (BOTOX(®) COSMETIC) for the correction of glabellar wrinkles. Methods  Subjects (N = 30) who had not previously received any cosmetic facial injections were randomized to essential oil of lavender aroma exposure or to placebo during elective cosmetic facial injections of BOTOX(®) (12 U) for the correction of glabellar wrinkles. Evaluations of subjects’ pain perceptions and levels of anxiety assessed by the Spielberger State-Trait Anxiety Inventory, heart rate (HR), and blood pressure (BP) measurements were taken at baseline, before, and after injections. Results  Subjects exposed to essential lavender oil showed a significant reduction in HR after the injection as compared to the pre-injection HR. Subjects exposed to the placebo did not show any significant difference in BP or HR between pre-injection and postinjection. Conclusions  Although essential oil of lavender did not have an effect on the subjects’ perception of pain during a facial injection, subjects showed significant increases in parasympathetic activity when exposed to the lavender aroma. Lavender aromatherapy has the potential to ease anxiety in patients undergoing minimally invasive facial cosmetic procedures.

There are many ways one can use the aroma therapy, it can be used by message in to the skin some times combining different oil depending what is the reason for therapy, sometimes aromatherapy can be used by adding few drops of essential oils in to the bath top full of warm water and staying soaked in there for a while for example if one like to go and face the day the require lots of energy it will be good to add few drops of Black paper and juniper in the water (6-10 drops) it has very uplifting affect. At night for relaxing and have a good night sleep you can use 2 part chamomile,2 part lavender and 2 part roses. Another way of using aromatherapy is adding the essential oil or the leaves in to the steaming water for example one can used lavender to relive anxiety by  having few drops in to a bowel od steaming water and have a towel over your head  so you can trap the steam and inhale 10-15 minutes. It is also great way of using essential oils that are good for completions that way.
