Scent for Medical use

Scenting your medical practice

The use of scent in the healthcare industry has been widely recognized for its ability to improve how patients feel. Results show that certain scents are able to relax patients and visitors and create a more positive environment.

Dental Clinics, Hospitals, and waiting rooms often create feelings of anxiety and stress. Whether you are a patient or visitor, the smell of harsh cleaning supplies and sterilization can contribute to a negative experience. To create a more relaxing environment for patients and staff, medical clinics turn to the most powerful of all human senses – smell

“Results revealed that both ambient odors of orange and lavender reduced anxiety and improved mood in patients waiting for dental treatment.”

In paediatric practices, using child-friendly fragrances that are fruity and sweet can make younger patients feel at ease.
