Anxiety Reduction During Office Medicine Using Aromatherapy
“Anxiety Reduction During Office Procedural Medicine Using Aromatherapy”
This goal of this study is to assess whether lavender aromatherapy during gynecologic and urogynecologic outpatient procedures is associated with a decrease in patient anxiety levels. Based on similar interventions in other specialties of medicine, the investigators hypothesize that patients exposed to lavender aromatherapy during their procedure will have less anxiety than those who are not exposed to lavender aromatherapy.
Participants in the experimental group will be passively exposed to lavender essential oil
Participants in the control group will be passively exposed to saline water aromatherapy
