Doctors, Dentists and Healthcare Professionals Use Scent to Soothe
Healthcare professionals are aware of the powerful impact of scent on patient feelings of well being. Studies have shown that scent can be used in many applications to positively affect the behaviors and emotions of patients, family, caretakers, and healthcare staff.
Vanilla, lavender and neutralizing scents (“Pure”) are popular recommendations. Vanilla can reduce claustrophobia in MRI facilities, calm pre-surgery and dental patients, and can reduce patient cancellations. Neutralizing unpleasant odors for patients with a heightened sense of smell will also soothe and comfort. Citrus uplifts and helps ease anxiety.
Clearly Better Scents offers custom fragrance development developed for the unique needs of your hospital, nursing home, doctor’s office, dentist’s office, outpatient surgery facility, laboratory physical therapy or chiropractic facility.
