There is nothing more relaxing than to kick off your shoes, light up a scented candle or essential oils and cuddle up in front of a roaring fire after a busy day on the beat in London W1. But the reason why this works is because the sense of smell can literally transform you to another place and help you to forget….lovely eh?
This is why you will find a lot of aromatherapy being used in dental surgeries these days. Dentists will always have a battle against phobias in their patients, which can make it difficult to administer treatments with precision, but although this is rapidly on the decrease and the use of aromas such as lavender in the surgery and beforehand in the waiting room, can induce relaxation.
Lavender is top of the tree for this and it has been proven that whenever it has been used before treatment, it tends to break the anxiety or panic in a patient as it tends to break the concentrated fear and move the mind-set to a different place.
It also allows the patients to relax more and get the best treatment that is available- what do you think of when you smell lavender, where does it take you? Try it and see and then realize that ten minutes have past before you get back to what you were doing before you picked up the scent!
