Analysis of Stress Relief Effect by Use of Aroma-Therapeutic Textiles
The efficacy of aroma-therapeutic textiles was quantified by gauging the psychophysiological responses of twenty female subjects exposed to treated as well as untreated textile specimens. In congruence with previous studies, statistical analysis of the psychophysiological responses showed stress relief in subjects after exposure to the essential oils. Aroma-therapeutic textiles in this study were developed by finishing 100% cotton fabric with β-cyclodextrin and one of two essential oils using the sol-gel method. The comparative SEM analysis of treated versus untreated textiles revealed the presence of treatment materials on the surface of the cotton fabric.
