Geert De VuystUpdated on 25 March 2021
Some aromatic extracts are photosensitizing when applied to the skin, followed by exposure to the sun (Tisserand & Young, 2014, p. 20, 27). Photosensitization means that the skin overreacts to sunlight, which can cause redness (erythema).

Geert De VuystUpdated on 25 March 2021
Pi-Chu Lin and colleagues from Taipei Medical University in Taiwan evaluate scientific research on the effects of aromatherapy on sleep quality in a 2019 systematic review and meta-analysis.
The authors conclude that aromatherapy can improve sleep quality. The species tested range from Rose (Damask) (Rosa × damascena), (Sweet) Marjoram (Origanum majorana) and Chamomile (Roman) (Chamaemelum nobile or Anthemis nobilis) to the Citrus genus.
