To create a more relaxing environment for patients and staff, medical clinics turn to the most powerful of all human senses - smell. Scenting a soothing scent of lavender or eucalyptus triggers an emotional response so the waiting room experience will feel less traumatic.
Most healthcare professionals are aware of the powerful impact of scent. Studies have shown that scent can be used in many applications, to positively affect the behaviors and emotions of patients and staff.
Scents may ease tension and anxiety in doctor's offices, patient waiting areas and family waiting rooms. Citrus scents are uplifting fragrances, which can help ease anxiety. Eucalyptus can be used to treat malodors, and has antibacterial properties.
An Australian university is using scents to assist in the diagnosis of several brain disorders including Alzheimer’s disease, Huntington’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, schizophrenia and obsessive-compulsive disorder. (University of Melbourne, 2006)
