Aromatherapy

I was talking to a patient last night about complimentary therapies. He said that the only one that makes complete sense to him is aromatherapy.

Years ago it was almost Christmas and he felt very alone and low in mood. Suddenly he caught a strong wift of oranges and the scent transported him back to very happy childhood memories of Christmas with his mother.

He was very struck with how his mood changed at once and can see how aromatherapy could be very therapeutic.

I'm a scent freak....I even love PATCHOULY .... Ah....where's my black light, my poof pillow....are the bells on these bottoms too big?

LOL :)

Burning scented candles, or a few drops of oil in the bath can be very effective as mood enhancers. Combining with music makes it more effective.

yes, for sure :)

Great, can you give it to yourself?

I guess you can Ari but I doubt it would so as relaxing

I certainly think scent can have a calming effect.
