Introduction: Sleep difficulties in patients are considered as a major problem. So, it is necessary to know and treat the patients suffering from sleep disorders. Therefore, this study aims to compare the effect of lavender oil aromatherapy and music therapy on sleep quality of burn patients.

Methods: In this clinical trial, 48 patients admitted in burn ward of Shohadaye Mehrab Hospital of Yazd were randomly allocated into Music therapy or Aromatherapy groups. The study was carried out since November 2013 till April 2014. Aromatherapy and music therapy in each groups were performed for 20 minutes in three consecutive nights. Data collection was done using demographic information questionnaire and Visual Analog Scale(VAS). Data was analyzed using SPSS software version 18.

Results: According to the findings, there was a considerable mean difference in sleep quality score before and after intervention in patients in music therapy group(p=0/005), while there was no significant difference in mean sleep quality score before and after intervention in aromatherapy group(p=0/17). According to the statistical test, there was no significant difference in mean sleep quality score between two experimental groups before and after intervention. The difference between sleep quality score before and after music therapy was much more than sleep quality score before and after aromatherapy but the difference was not significant(p=0/40).

Conclusions: According to the findings, music therapy and aromatherapy for 20 minutes did not have a considerable effect on sleep quality of burn patients. Therefore, in order to get a better result,
 increasing the time, duration of the intervention and the participation of the patient 's family in the interventions would be suggested.
