Now more than ever, we must use essential oils.
- The Saint-Nicolas d'Angers Hospital in France has used sweet orange, lavandin and lemongrass essential oils for years to treat insomnia and anxiety in elderly residents.
- The Valenciennes Hospital has implemented more than 18 protocols for the use of essential oils against pain, bruising, etc. Doctors speak of " excellent results" after its application.
- The Mouscron Hospital , in Belgium, uses the essential oils of thyme, lemon and eucalyptus to calm the insomnia of its patients.
And in Spain, do we use essential oils?
Well, here we have timid attempts to bring the benefits of aromatherapy closer to the hospital environment. For example, the Hospital Sant Jaume de Calella , in Barcelona, began using them in 2019 to improve and facilitate childbirth.
Hospitals that use aromatherapy do so not simply to deodorize and scent their rooms, but because essential oils can tangibly improve the health of their patients.
The researchers from the University of Tottori, in Japan, are probably one of the greatest supporters of this thesis. In fact, they have been testing the effects of essential oils on Alzheimer's disease for years.
In this sense, thanks to a study in 128 patients exposed to two daily diffusions of essential oils, they concluded that these have " notable positive effects " both on memory and on sleep quality and concentration.
The reason is simple: the vapors they emit relax the limbic system, which functions as the "seat" of emotions.
And that is why it is said (and has been proven) that, for example, the smells of freshly cut basil soothe the heart, that the exotic aroma of eucalyptus lowers blood pressure and that the spicy essence of lemon opens the respiratory tract.
Nature's antiseptic weaponEssential oils offer many other important health properties. One of them, its enormous ability to get rid of molds and bacteria, especially staphylococci.
That is undoubtedly one of the keys that is making essential oils a rising value in hospitals in more and more countries.
They are excellent natural antiseptics!
There are not few studies that have addressed the impact of aromatherapy on bacterial proliferation. Some of the most relevant conclusions suggest that in just 30 minutes, essential oils are capable of ridding the air of mold and bacteria. And after 9 hours of diffusion, the air would be clean of all kinds of microbial colonies.
