Youn-Ho Lee, Hyun-Sook Bae
ABSTRACT
The purpose of this study is to use as a way of smoking cessation by figuring out how the aromatic inhalation therapy using lavender essential oil has an effect on the smoking cessation among high school girls. This study was carried on 30 girl students. The test subjects, 30 girl students were divided into control group (n=15) and experimental group (n=15). An experiment was conducted on control group living without the use of lavender essential oil and experimental group living with inhaling lavender essential oil 3 times a day and wearing necklace for 4 weeks. The change of nicotine dependence in experimental group before-after experiment showed that the nicotine dependence score significantly decreases at time goes on from 10.33±0.62 before experiment to the first 8.73±0.46, the second 7.27±0.59 and the third 6.07±1.34 after experiment (p<.01). While the change of nicotine dependence in control group showed that the nicotine dependence slightly decreases at time goes on, there was no significant difference. In experimental group the change of carbon monoxide significantly decreased at time goes on from 6.27±2.89 before experiment to the first 5.67±2.44, the second 3.80±2.08, the third 2.07±1.62 and the fourth 1.20±1.08 after experiment (p<.01). While the change of carbon monoxide in control group showed that carbon monoxide slightly decreases from 6.13±3.36 before experiment to the first 5.40±4.55 after experiment, but significantly increases at time goes on since the first to the second 5.80±4.49, the third 6.73±4.03 and the fourth 8.33±3.54 after experiment (p<.05). This study intends to be used as basic data that prepare an alternative to smoking cessation for high-school girls’ health by determining the status of their smoking. Diverse researches on their smoking will have to be carried out to put forward ways that can fundamentally solve their smoking problems.
