University researchers in Japan found that diffusing certain aromas in an office environment dramatically improved mental accuracy and concentration. Diffused lemon resulted in 54 percent fewer errors, jasmine 33 percent fewer errors, and lavender 20 percent fewer errors; when aromas were diffused during test taking, scores increased by as much as 50 percent. Many major hospital emergency rooms in the USA are diffusing lemon and other citrus oils because of its effect on mental accuracy and concentration.
A 1995 Mie University study found that citrus fragrances boosted immunity, induced relaxation and boosted mood.
