There are many ways to improve wellness while also enjoying the experience. Aromatherapy is a simple way to de-stress while enjoying good scents. Here are some familiar scents and the benefits they provide:

  • Rosemary
    Rosemary is not just for the kitchen. It helps decrease cortisol levels and improve memory. It would work best for seniors with dementia.
  • Citrus Oils
    Citrus scents from lemon, orange, or grapefruit are not just refreshing. They contain natural anti-depressant properties that curb anxiety and depression.
  • Essential Oils with Anti-Bacterial Properties
    Flu, coughs, colds, or blocked sinuses can be relieved by essential oils containing strong anti-bacterial, anti-viral, expectorant, and decongestant qualities. Common examples are eucalyptus, tea tree, thyme, and rosemary.
  • Lavender
    Lavender improves the mood. It can also help with sleeping. A few drops of lavender oil onto a pillow can aid sleep. It can also be used in a bath before bedtime.
