The psychiatrist in charge of the Alzheimer's unit at a nearby hospital is taking it seriously. The head nurse asked me to come and speak to their nurses about aromatherapy about three years ago, and the doctor in charge decided on the spot to try it. They have been diffusing YLEO's "Peace & Calming" there ever since.

A former student of mine is the administrator of a nursing home, and he does the same thing. Apparently they think it is having some benefit or they wouldn't continue to spend the money on it. It isn't cheap. A 15 ml bottle is about $45.

This isn't medical, but our town manager also sponges down the conference table with it before a meeting. She says people haven't been getting near as whacked out at the town council meetings since she's been doing it!
