Purpose : This study was performed to evaluate the antistress effects of two aromatic blends being composed of synergic essential oils and also to differentiate its effectiveness between two. Methods : The subject were 20(10 for men, 10 for women) for vital factors and another 20(10 for men, 10 for women) for serum catecholamine. Vital factors(blood pressure, pulse), electroencephalography, psychological tests(SACL, STAI) and serum catecholaminewere applied to the subjects. Results : 1. All two aromatic synergic blends revealed no significant difference of vital factors after inhalation but stable conditions generally by lowering pulse and blood pressure after inhalation. 2. Both blends were significantly valuable in antianxiety and antistress effects statistically. There were no statistically difference between two blends. 3. There were no significant difference in all brain waves after inhalation of two blends but generally stable brain waves were seen in all areas. 4. There were antistress effects of both blends in accordance of decreased serum catecholamines after inhalation of both blends. There were no significantly difference between two blends statistically. Conclustion : Both two aromatic synergic blends reached effective antistress and antianxiety states after inhalation of each blends. There were no significant difference between two blends. Further studies be considered. Also clinical applications of these two aromatic synergic blending oils to develop the aromatic products would be affordable in the future.
