Learn how to safely retrain & regain your sense of smell

In Parkinson’s disease, it is estimated that up to 95% of people experience a loss of smell and are more likely to suffer from depression, anxiety, feelings of isolation, weight loss and loss of taste.
As a Clinical Nutritionist, my concern is the significant impact a loss of smell has on a person’s diet, food and nutrition choices. Smell loss increases a person’s risk of nutrient deficiencies and malnourishment due to losing interest in food because the enjoyment of eating is no longer there without smell and taste.
Unfortunately, current Parkinson’s disease treatments do not benefit smell loss as treatments are mostly focused on stabilising and controlling a person’s movement. However, in recent years, there have been a number of studies to report people improving their sense of smell by using scent training.
Over recent months, I have been reviewing the research literature around scent training. On the back of the current research evidence I have develop a Scent training kit. Having an option to improve and recover the sense of smell is significant. Regaining the sense of smell will have many benefits such as regaining the enjoyment of good food, improving nutrition which in turn helps to improve overall health and wellbeing outcomes.

How Does Scent Training Work?
Scent Training Coaching Video
If you have lost your sense of smell for longer than 2 weeks, scent training is a simple and safe way that may assist you to recover your sense of smell.
How Common is Loss of Smell?
In Parkinson’s disease, the loss of smell is extremely common. It is estimated that up to 95% of people with Parkinson’s disease experience some degree of smell loss.
What is Scent Training?
Scent training involves sniffing 4 different scent categories for the odour prism twice daily for a minimum of 12 weeks.
Is Scent Training Safe?
Yes. There have been no reported side effects from scent training.
Why use a Scent Training Kit?
Using a scent training kit ensures you have the required resources on hand to complete the training.
I found through trial and error that using larger sniff pots allows a bigger diffusion of scent to make sniffing the fragrance easier. I also only use a specific cardboard disk in the sniff pots which I have found retains the fragrance for longer and soaks up the essential oils more easily.
I will only use glass to containers for the scents and not plastic. This is because plastic containers interact with the essential oils and the fragrance becomes distorted and unrecognisable.
What is Included in The Scent Training Kits?
The kits contain everything you need to start your scent training. The kit includes the following:
- 4 x Sniff pots with discs infused with Lemon, Clove, Eucalyptus and Gardenia essential oil.
- 4 x 3ml refill bottles. This has enough essential oil to last at least 3 months. The oils are potent and a few drops go a long way to top up the sniff pots with scent for training.
- 1 x Scent training guide including 12 week tracking logs, mood boards, hints and tips.
The Scent Training Kits are not massed produced. The kits are put together by hand, therefore I will only have limited kits available at one time.
What You Need to Know Before Ordering
The Sniff Pots …. on receiving an order I individually infuse a disc with fragrant for each of the sniff pots. I keep the newly infused sniff pot for a day to ensure the scent has infused before I post it to you. If you store the sniff pots correctly as outlined in the training guide, then this initial infusion of scent can last up to 3 weeks before you need to top up.
Returns …. please order carefully. Due to hygiene reasons I am unable to accept returns or refunds unless your kit arrives broken or damaged. If this is the case then please take a picture of the kit and forward to me straight away. If you have only recently experienced smell loss then please ensure you visit your doctor in the first instance. Additionally, I would recommend that you wait for at least 2 weeks from the onset of smell loss before ordering a training kit.
