The sampling technique is purposive sampling. Data were analyzed using univariate and bivariate with the Wilcoxon test. Data were processed using a computer with the SPSS program. Before being given rose aromatherapy, it was found that the intensity of labor pain in the first stage of labor, namely only 1 person (3.3%) experienced mild pain. Meanwhile, after being given rose aromatherapy, it was found that the intensity of labor pain in the first stage of labor, namely those experiencing mild pain, increased to 9 people (30.0%).
