  • Lavender's Antianxiety Effects Nothing to Sniff At - Medscape, 10/25/18 - "the vaporized lavender compound linalool triggers a relaxing effect by directly stimulating olfactory sensory neurons ... The researchers say it is notable that the animals' movements did not become impaired after the animals smelled linalool. By contrast, benzodiazepines and linalool injections had effects on movement that were similar to those caused by alcohol ... these results suggest that linalool does not act directly on GABAA receptors like benzodiazepines do but must activate them via olfactory neurons in the nose in order to produce its relaxing effects ... the anxiolytic effects induced by the odor of linalool "may be applicable for preoperative patients because pretreatment with anxiolytics can alleviate preoperative stress and thus contribute to place patients under general anesthesia more smoothly" - See lavender oil at Amazon.com.
