Aromatherapy at the Orchard

Aromatherapy uses pure essential oils to improve physical, mental, and emotional health. The sense of smell connects directly with emotions, memories, and instincts. Because of the neuro-associative conditioning process, aromas have the power to evoke states of well being.

Peppermint is an essential oil used as an energizer. It’s best used in the morning, to help stimulate the mind and at the same time calm the nerves. Peppermint is used as a morning pick-me-up and a natural boost for our residents to start their day. Lavender is an essential oil used to calm feelings of anxiety, depression, and general mood swings. Lavender has also been shown to help treat insomnia resulting in a better night’s sleep.

Aromatherapy draws upon the healthing powers of the leaves, flowers, stems, bark, seeds, roots, or peels of plants. When you inhale a scent, that aroma travels directly to the hypothalamus, which regulates a variety of functions such as sleep and emotion. Each morning between 7 am – 8 am, we diffuse Peppermint throughout The Orchard at Tucker. We hope to stimulate appetite and diffuse a postivie aroma into our reidents’ daily morning routine.

Each evening between 7 pm – 8 pm we diffuse Lavender throughout both of our Season’s Neighborhoods. Lavender helps with our residents’ mental fatique, anxiety, as well as aches and pains. Levender’s calming powers aid our residents to a blissful nights sleep.
