Number One: Lavender

Probably one of the most studied of essential oils for treatment in human ailments, the properties in lavender are known to help improve sleep quality, anxiety and depression. In an article from the National Center for Biotechnology Institute, a clinical study indicates that a "long-stay neurology in-patient department showed increased mood scores and reduced psychological distress"[1] using lavender in aromatherapy.
