Scent Training Essential Oil Bundle
What is scent training?
Scent training, also known as olfactory training, is the process of smelling the 4 scents in 20 second increments twice a day. It is used to help regain your smell, when you have fully lost your smell (anosmia), have a reduced sense of smell (hyposmia) or have a distorted sense of smell (phantosmia). Scent training is there to help stimulate you smell so that you can regain it over time.
Many people have had issues with their smell after contracting Covid and have turned to scent training to help regain their sense of smell.
What is included in the bundle?
The following are included in the bundle: 10ml Lemon Essential Oil, 10ml Clove Bud Essential Oil, 10ml Rose Geranium Essential Oil and 10ml Eucalyptus Globulus Essential Oil.
These scents are selected as studies have suggested each scent should be very different. Each scent fits into different distinct scent group.
How do I use the essential oils for scent training?
There are a few ways that you can scent train.
The most popular way is to put some watercolour paper or something similar that is absorbent in amber jars (these are available for purchase separately). It is important that each scent has its own jar. Label the jars so that they can be identified. Add a few drops of essential oil to each jar. Make sure your jars are tightly sealed, away from sunlight and heat when you are not using them.
Alternatively, you can also place the essential oils on disposable scent strips. If you choose this method be careful not to let the strip touch your nose as the essential oils may cause skin irritation.
Both processes require the same technique of smelling each scent by taking multiple small sniffs of each fragrance in 20 second increments twice a day. Leave 20-30 seconds between smelling each fragrance. It is recommended to do this once in the morning and once in the evening. This process is recommended daily.
