The bath salts is high-profile as its distinctive aroma makes people relaxed with fresh and energetic feelings. EEG is analyzed with the lavipeditum bath method in this study and the physiological reactions (relaxation effects) are discussed and investigated in order to provide basic data for developing the practical products that can make life more comfortable and affluent by quantification for its effect. The experiment demonstrates that the physiological reaction generated by bath salts… Expand

Figures from this paper


Aromatherapy positively affects mood, EEG patterns of alertness and math computations.
The lavender group showed increased beta power, suggesting increased drowsiness, and they had less depressed mood (POMS) and reported feeling more relaxed and performed the math computations faster and more accurately following aromatherapy. Expand
Fragrance compounds and essential oils with sedative effects upon inhalation.
The results proved the sedative effects of these fragrants via inhalative exposure in low concentrations and contribute to the correct interpretation of the term aromatherapy. Expand
Alteration of perceived fragrance of essential oils in relation to type of work: a simple screening test for efficacy of aroma.
It was confirmed that inhalation of essential oil caused a different subjective perception of fragrance depending on the type of work, and a sensory test employed might serve not only as a screening test for efficacy of aroma but also as a categorized table for aroma samples which can act as a reference to each other.

Lavender Aromatherapy in Recovery from Exercise
Twenty men were randomly assigned to a control or an experimental group, and the experimental group was exposed to lavender aromatherapy, and recovery measures included diastolic and systolic blood pressure, mean arterial pressure, pulse pressure, and heart rate. Expand
An evaluation of aromatherapy massage in palliative care
The addition of an essential oil seems to enhance the effect of massage and to improve physical and psychological symptoms, as well as overall quality of life. Expand

Factor analysis of the EEG band scores proved that each σ-, α-, β1- and β2-band component of EEG was of one-factor structure, all the correlation coefficients being approximately +0.9 at each. Expand
Topographical changes in the ongoing EEG related to the difficulty of mental tasks
An experiment was carried out to investigate the hypothesis that task difficulty is reflected in changes in the topographical distribution of the ongoing EEG, and found that higher task difficulty resulted in EEG changes that led to the identification of two factors. Expand

Understanding Berger’s path to the EEG within the context of his own scientific era and life experiences highlights both the familiar and the foreign in Berger's story, and provides a historical prelude to the modern investigation of the brain and its functions. Expand
Topographic EEG study of visual display terminal (VDT) performance with special reference to frontal midline theta waves
The relationship between spatio-temporal analysis of EEG activity and productivity of VDT work was investigated and it was concluded that some factors relating to the severity of a mental task and the distribution of cortical EEG potentials are closely related. Expand
Alpha rhythms as physiological and abnormal phenomena.

Physiological alpha rhythms are likely to have closer relationships to 'events' than one might have thought earlier and the demonstration of event-related desynchronization and synchronization (in Pfurtscheller's work) clearly underscores this view. Expand
