Aged Care Scenting

The Science of Scenting…

Scenting For: Nursing Homes, Palliative Care, Waiting Rooms

The use of scenting and aromatherapy in aged care, nursing and retirement homes can vastly improve how residents and visitors feel by decreasing stress, aggression, odours and anxiety. The calming properties of the essential oils can be crucial for soothing residents or visitors during highly stressful situations, such as impending appointments, operations and other high stress situations.

Unlike synthetic based fragrances, our oils are far more effective at influencing the subconscious and emotional decision making. Our fragrances do not contain proteins, polypeptides or amino acids meaning our essential oil fragrances are non-allergenic.

Therapeutic Power of Essential Oils in Aged Care

Among the myriad essential oils employed for therapeutic use, some stand out prominently in the context of aged care and nursing environments. Lavender, for instance, has been revered for its remarkable ability to induce relaxation and alleviate anxiety. The gentle aroma of chamomile has long been associated with calming nerves, making it particularly beneficial for both residents and visitors in nursing homes. Eucalyptus, with its refreshing scent, can be invigorating and help clear the respiratory system, providing relief especially to those with breathing difficulties. Then there’s frankincense, an ancient oil, known for its deep grounding properties and its ability to instill a sense of peace.

Creating a Holistic Healing Environment: Benefits for Residents and Staff

Incorporating these natural fragrances into the atmosphere of nursing homes and palliative care centres is not just about masking odours or creating a pleasant environment. It’s part of a holistic approach to well-being. Beyond just the physical care, it’s essential to address the emotional and psychological dimensions of residents. A soothing scent, the warmth of natural sunlight, the gentle hum of soft music—these sensory experiences can transform a sterile environment into a nurturing haven. By creating such a comprehensive and considerate environment, the entire community within the facility—residents, visitors, and staff—experience the benefits.

Speaking of staff, the positive changes are not limited to the residents alone. An environment enriched with therapeutic aromas, complemented by a holistic approach to well-being, often results in improved morale among caregivers and other personnel. For those who spend long hours attending to the needs of residents, the uplifting scents can offer a subtle reprieve, reducing stress and burnout. In a profession where emotional and physical demands run high, these small yet significant enhancements in the workplace atmosphere can make a world of difference.

Elevating Aged Care Through Thoughtful Scenting

In the realm of aged care, introducing tailored aromatic elements goes beyond simple fragrance; it becomes an integral part of enhancing residents quality of life. Ensuring a comfortable and serene environment is paramount. By infusing specialised scents, we aim to uplift moods, cultivate positive perceptions, and even mitigate challenging behaviors, such as aggression or restlessness.

Harmonious Care Through the Power of Scent

When residents and their visitors feel at ease, it sets a harmonious tone for the entire facility. This tranquility aids nursing staff in delivering efficient and compassionate care. Beyond just creating a pleasant atmosphere, the strategic use of aromatherapy can have tangible benefits—like spurring appetites during meal times. The power of scent shouldn’t be underestimated. Scientifically, our olfactory senses are deeply tied to memories, emotions, and even decision-making patterns. In the sensitive setting of aged care, harnessing this powerful connection can make a world of difference.
