The study aimed to evaluate the effectiveness of aromatherapy using essential oils from Rosa Damascena and Citrus Aurantium blossom in managing the symptoms of premenstrual syndrome (PMS) among female students. Participants were randomly assigned to three groups, receiving either aromatherapy with Rosa Damascena, Citrus Aurantium, or sweet almond oil (control). The Premenstrual Symptoms Screening Tool (PSST) questionnaire assessed the impact of the intervention on mental and physical symptoms and social functions. Results indicated a significant decrease in mental symptoms for the groups using Rosa Damascena and Citrus Aurantium, with Rosa Damascena also showing significant improvement in physical symptoms and social functioning. While both essential oils were effective, Rosa Damascena had a more pronounced effect across psychological, physical, and social domains compared to Citrus Aurantium, highlighting its potential as a more potent alternative for alleviating PMS symptoms.
