The purpose of this study is to evaluate the effectiveness of a combination of lavender, sweet marjoram, and pink grapefruit oils on a patient’s perception of pain, and the ability to reduce the use of opioids in an emergency department setting. In the midst of the current opioid epidemic, there is much discussion on the multi-modal approach to the treatment of pain. One potential source of analgesics that can be utilized in this approach to pain control is aromatherapy with essential oils.
