Abstract

The effect of aromatherapy on the brain signal is investigated to find the correlation with the heart rate, blood pressure and mathematical computation. First the experiment is conducted to find the effect of aromatherapy on heart rate, blood pressure and mathematical computation and the result is then been correlated to brain signal obtained. Thus the study of effect of aromatherapy covers the physiology and psychologically effects which are important to be identified to know the significant effect of aromatherapy to physiology and psychological as well as to determine the correlation between physiology and psychological of the human body. In this study, Rose has been chosen as the aroma for the study of the effect of aromatherapy.
