Introduction: Poor sleep quality is a common problem among hemodialysis patients. Aromatherapy has few complications and is an effective approach to this issue.
Objective: The present study aimed to assess the effect of aromatherapy with jasmine essential oil on the sleep quality of hemodialysis patients.
Materials and Methods: This double-group clinical trial was conducted on 54 patients

undergoing hemodialysis who had poor sleep quality in Sabzevar City, Iran, in 2021. The patients were divided into two groups of intervention and control (21 in the intervention group and 25 control) using random allocation with

permuted blocks. Data were collected using a demographic questionnaire and the

Pittsburgh sleep quality index (PSQI), which were completed at the beginning of the

study. The patients in the intervention group inhaled a piece of cotton smeared with

jasmine essential oil every night for one month. The concentration of jasmine extract was 70%, the duration of inhalation was about 7 hours, and the distance between the place of cotton soaked in jasmine and the patient's nose was 30 cm. Afterwards, the PSQI was completed again. Data analysis was performed using descriptive indices, the Chi-square test, independent t-test, paired t-test, Fisher's exact test, and Univariate analysis of variance. Values less than 0.05 were considered significant.
Results: The patients were aged 18-70 years Comparison of demographic data in two groups showed no significant difference in
terms of age, gender, marital status, employment status, and education between the intervention and control groups. In the intervention group, the mean score of sleep quality decreased from
9.90±2.70 to 6.16±2.15 after aroma therapy. In the control group, the score decreased
from 8.48±2.98 to 8.16±2.68.
The results of Analysis of Variance test for overall sleep quality after the intervention by modulating the effect of overall sleep quality before the intervention showed significant difference among the groups in terms of overall sleep quality after the intervention (the effect size=0.24, p =0.001).
Conclusion: According to the results, aromatherapy with jasmine essential oil could
enhance the sleep quality and sleep duration of the patient’s undergoing hemodialysis.
