ESSENTIAL OIL DIFFUSER FOR DENTAL OFFICES
Use of essential oils to reduce anxiety in the dental office has been growing over the last several years. We have been fortunate enough to be able to work with several dental practices to determine what diffusers would work well in their offices. Diffusing oils is one of the easiest ways to improve air quality and increase patient relaxation.
These products below are great for delivering scent to dental offices. We are running a huge sale right now and we are offering them at a big discount.
Our clients have discovered that people enjoy the subtle scent of pure essential oils while they are in the patient room. It’s important to only use cold-pressed organic or natural essential oils that have no chemicals or solvents in them that could irritate the patient. In addition to quality oils, you will need a quality cold air nebulizing diffuser that doesn’t heat up the oil and disperses of the scent evenly.
When you heat up oils or mix them with water it dilutes the potency of the fragrance and also increases the rate in which you use oil effectively costing you more to operate the diffuser. The products we sell are commercial grade essential oil diffusers made of medical plastics and stainless steel. They are easy to clean and operate and ensure you get the highest yield out of your oils while you diffuse your patient rooms. All of our diffusers have the ability to connect directly to your HVAC system at the office as well. Saving you the hassle of hanging the unit or having something on the floor or counter. You can buy one machine and scent all of your rooms through your air conditioning. There is a simple hose that connects to your air handler and a time of the machine dispense oils every few minutes.
A study was done using orange and lavender oils at the University Clinic of Neurology, Medical University of Vienna, Austria. They tested the effects of inhaling essential oils while waiting for a dental procedure. The goal of the study was to examine the impact of the essential oils of orange and lavender on anxiety, mood, alertness and calmness in dental patients.
Two hundred patients between the ages of 18 and 77 years, with equal numbers of women and men, were assigned to one of four independent groups. While waiting for dental procedures patients were either stimulated with ambient odor of orange or ambient odor of lavender. These conditions were compared to a music condition and a control condition (no odor, no music). Anxiety, mood, alertness and calmness were assessed while patients waited for dental treatment.
Statistical analyses revealed that compared to control condition both ambient odors of orange and lavender reduced anxiety and improved mood in patients waiting for dental treatment. These findings support the opinion that odors are capable of altering emotional states and may indicate that the use of odors is helpful in reducing anxiety in dental patients.
