If you want to increase oxygen levels in the room and improve air quality, plants are the best way. And also if you wish to improve mood, and fight anxiety, depression, and prevent panic attacks, there are also some specific plants that will help you.
According to researchers, there is a direct link between stress and oxygen levels and they also say that anxiety and stress can be occurred due to high levels of toxins in the air. So, you can drastically improve your mood and relieve stress and anxiety.
According to the studies conducted by scientists discovered that the aroma of the jasmine plant and jasmine essential oil significantly calmed them, and made them stop all activity and sit quietly in a corner. According to their brain scans, the jasmine fragrance boosts the effects of a chemical called GABA on nerve cells, and thus relieves anxiety and encourages rest.
These findings published online in the Journal of Biological Chemistry can “be seen as evidence of a scientific basis for aromatherapy” says the Professor Hanns Hatt.
Prof Hatt, of the Ruhr University in Bochum, Germany, added:
“We have discovered a new class of GABA receptor modulator which can be administered parentally and through the respiratory air. Applications in sedation, anxiety, excitement, and aggression relieving treatment and sleep induction therapy are all imaginable.”
According to the researchers, jasmine is much more effective than sleeping pills, anti-anxiety medications, and sedatives, as it increased the GABA effect by more than five times.
“Research at Wheeling Jesuit University by Dr. Bryan Raudenbush, assistant professor of psychology, shows dispensing jasmine odor into a room where participants were sleeping “led to greater sleep efficiency and reduced sleep movement.”Even though there wasn’t more quantity of sleep, there was a greater quality of sleep.
Participants who breathed jasmine in the air “rated their level of anxiety and vigor lower, and performed cognitive tests more rapidly.” And also, “level of alertness in the jasmine odor condition was greater during the afternoon hours, thus helping maintain students’ focus on academic work throughout the day.”
