Most of us do love certain smells…I certainly do. Aromatherapy candles, sprays, lotions, essential oils…the list goes on. I love smells, ask anyone who knows me. The essential oils are some of my favorites. I have lavender oil for relaxation, rosemary, peppermint, and eucalyptus for stress reduction, orange ginger for energy, etc. During my use over the last ten years or so, some of these essential oils not only smell good to me, they can have natural benefits and healing properties. Silverado Hospice which provides Hospice Care Services to our residents in our Assisted Living Cottages in The Woodlands, Spring, and Kingwood offer Therapeutic Essential Oils to their patients to help reduce psychotropic medications and some pain medications normally prescribed for arthritis pain, anxiety, and promote calmness to their patients. What a wonderful alternative.
