In another study carried out at the Old Manor Hospital in Salisbury, England, Mark Hardy RMN conducted an experiment to assess the effects of lavender oil on the sleeping patterns of elderly mentally ill patients, in place of their usual medication.

Pain levels, wakefulness, heart rate and systolic blood-pressure were measured before and after treatment, then compared with two control groups – one group which received a massage using just almond oil, and another which simply had a rest period. Results showed that the aromatherapy group enjoyed the greatest reduction in pain, wakefulness and blood-pressure – with.
