Alleviated Subjective Symptoms Hay Fever, Improve Patients’ Sleep Quality Looking into the test result, “nasal obstruction” was the only symptom which showed a significant improvement by the aromatherapy oil inhalation. A previous study on patients with allergic rhinopathy showed that a nasal spray containing Ravensara essential oil reduced the eosinophils granulocytes and mast cells without eosinophil and metachromatic granules over the intervention period, implying potential for not only soothing AR symptoms but also preventing the source of them. In conclusion, the current randomized controlled trial showed that the inhalation of blended oil from Ravensara , frankincense, and sandalwood alleviated subjective symptoms, improved the disease-specific quality of life, and reduced fatigue among adult patients with PAR. This intervention also has potential for improvement in sleep quality.
