Wound healing is a natural body reaction formed as a tissue response to injury. Restoration of the structural and functional integrity of injured tissues is a very complex and dynamic process involving various overlapping phases such as hemostasis, inflammation, proliferation, and maturation.  Each phase of healing involves a cascade of cellular and biochemical processes mediated by various growth factors, cytokines and enzymes, which play an inter-dependent and pivotal role in wound healing. Many important factors such as diabetes, hypertension, aging, malnutrition, radiation, and medication use are associated with the compromised capacity of skin to promote self-regeneration and consequent delayed wound healing.  An impairment of the immune system in diabetic patients leads to an increased vulnerability to the contamination of the wound and postpones tissue recovery. On the other hand, poor circulation, as a consequence of hyperglycemia hinder the delivery of defense factors and nutrients to the wound area resulting in a delay or, absence of wound healing.

Advantages of topical formulations in comparison to systemically applied drugs involve deeper penetration into skin, increased bioavailability, and direct action on the site of application. Although various therapeutic regimens involving antibiotics, antiseptics, and anti-inflammatory agents are available for the management of wounds, last decades shed the light on medicinal plants and natural products as a major source of wound healing compounds. A significant increase in the usage of medicinal herbs is the result of greater safety compared to chemical drugs, with more affordable prices.

Fatigue is a subjective feeling of tiredness, weakness, or lack of energy and motivation. It is distressing and highly prevalent in adults, particularly in those diagnosed with cancer, receiving hemodialysis or suffering from chronic diseases. It has no specific mechanism and can occur at any disease stage.. Aromatherapy can be delivered by inhalation, massage, compression, or foot baths. Research indicates that aromatic inhalation stimulates the olfactory nerve cells and the integumentary and lymphatic systems, triggering the release of neurotransmitters, such as endorphins, peptides, enkephalin, serotonin, and noradrenaline, which can enhance wellbeing and relaxation, thus reducing chronic stress.

Since therapeutic effects of essential oils has been widely investigated, recent studies show that application of essential oils for anxiety and pain relief is very successful especially when they are used in combination with conventional treatment. Essential Oils can be administered through oral consumption, direct skin contact, or inhalation. Among all different administration routes, inhalation is the most commonly adopted method. Moreover, Essential oils from different plant extracts demonstrate different effects. For instance, lavender and bergamot essential oils are widely used in either  single use or mixed use for relaxation. It has been shown that the different positive effects were linked to specific constituents in essential oils. Therefore, application of essential oils in combined form maximizes their therapeutic effect due their different molecular compounds.
