COVID-19 Testing Study

COVID-19 Testing Study

Our team is currently recruiting participants for a study exploring the effects of aromatherapy on COVID-19 testing related stress and anxiety.

This study is open to American adults of all genders who have recently been tested for SARS-CoV-2 OR who are planning to be tested within the next 1-3 days.

To join this study, you must live in a non-smoking household, and you must not be pregnant or trying to become pregnant. If you are experiencing difficulty breathing, chest pain, confusion, or have underlying risk factors such as diabetes or heart disease, you do not qualify to participate in this study.

You qualify for this study if you have been exposed to COVID-19 OR if you currently have symptoms that could be COVID-19. Symptoms such as a fever, fatigue, dry cough, headache, loss of taste or smell, congestion, nausea/vomiting, or diarrhea qualify you for this study.

To join this study, you MUST have recently taken (within the last 1-2 days) or have plans to take a COVID-19 test (within the next 1-3 days) AND have not received your test results at the time of participation.

Participants in this study will be mailed a scented strip with instructions on use. If you participate, you will complete a 10-15 minute survey, follow a 15 minute breathing exercise with the scented strip, then complete another brief survey. The entire study will take 30-45 minutes of your time and can be completed in your own home.

Participants who complete the study will be compensated $25.

If you complete the form on this page, you are not under any obligation to participate. This simply allows our team to send you information about the study. When you receive more information, you can review the information and decide whether or not to participate.
