The introduction of aromatherapy in palliative care

Virginie uses essential oils to complement drug therapies, taking a comprehensive approach to the patient. Since 2014, several aromatherapy protocols have been put in place, targeting symptoms that are not completely controlled by traditional treatments such as unpleasant odours, anxiety, sleep disorders or nausea or vomiting.
Aromatic care is well-tolerated and appreciated by patients, families and caregivers for the olfactory pleasure it provides.

The grant enabled it to extend the use of these protocols to more patients.
