Smell Training Kit £22 - Contains 4 pots to help regain your sense of smell treat loss of smell with essential oils.
Smell Training involves daily smelling of aromatics to reawaken the olfactory nerves twice a day. Each pot contains a few essential oils on a pad. Simply unscrew the lid and hold it close to your nose. Take quick, “bunny breaths” for 20 seconds and try to remember and ‘find` the smell, engaging your mind to evoke the sensation. Relax and leave a short gap before trying the next fragrance and work your way through all four pots.
