ConclusionsThe evidence from the above trials is not sufficient to conclude that aromatherapy effectively relieves symptoms in patients with burns. However, the findings of the trials do not seem very plausible, and the trials themselves were of low quality and included only small numbers of patients.

Cognitive dysfunction and negative symptoms make social participation difficult for patients with schizophrenia (Brekke et al., 2009; Green and Nuechterlein, 1999; Ventura et al., 2014). Interestingly, cognitive dysfunction in schizophrenia can be improved through cognitive remediation (Cella et al., 2015), which simultaneously facilitates social participation (Katsumi et al., 2017; Wykes et al., 2011). In addition, there is evidence that music therapy can ameliorate negative symptoms (Geretsegger et al., 2017; Ulrich et al., 2007).
