Remember the adage, “the nose knows?” Our sense of smell has a powerful impact on other systems in our body. Oils have been used for generations but recently as more and more people are beginning to examine the true benefits of essential oils. Several studies have found aromatherapy to be an efficacious, non-pharmacological therapy. This year at Franklin Park, after thoughtful research and analysis, we’re excited to launch our first aromatherapy lounge in the memory care neighborhood of TPC Parkway. Since we have had such great response from so many, we wanted to share some of our stories and how we are continuing to pioneer this effort to bring wellness to our residents in new and exciting ways.
