In late April, two friends set off to Amsterdam and Paris for a four-day adventure, armed with the Soothing Scents inhaler range (QueaseEASE, Expecting, Focus and Still) to see how they’d hold up across 1,200 miles of trains, planes, canal tours and bicycle rides.
Oh, and we did some tourist stuff in between.

We live in fast times.
It’s a time when hospitals are understaffed, performance is increasingly driven by corporate metrics, and national healthcare policy complicates the efficacy of medical systems and medical professionals — taking a toll on their own health.

You asked, we answered! More specifically, Soothing Scents founder Wendy Nichols (BSN, APRN, CRNA) sat down to talk about bad products, essential oil therapy, and why inhaled is better.
The effect that inhaled essential oils has on nausea is still a pretty well-kept secret. It’s a unique blend of these oils with which we’ve created our own range of remedies for nausea, morning sickness, focus and stress relief. But how does it work exactly? Here’s how:
However you plan to celebrate, if you’re in the US, you know that the holidays are all about keeping cozy, feeling festive, eating a lot, and relishing the nostalgia of years passed.

Nausea-free living, now hands-free. Introducing our newest, most powerful defense against nausea.
Few wellness brands can say that they were formed within the four walls of an operating room. Soothing Scents formally launched in 2004, but really started a few years before, when a nurse anesthetist from Maine was trying to figure out a way to lessen the discomfort of post-op nausea experienced by her hospital patients. That nurse anesthetist was Wendy Nichols (BSN, APRN, CRNA), founder and director of creative development at Soothing Scents Inc. We spoke to Wendy about how Soothings Scents began, how essential oils are gaining popularity in hospitals, and how to spot a bad essential oil product.
Good news! As of this week, you can buy all Soothing Scents inhalers on Amazon Prime, meaning more convenient shopping for you, and free, fast shipping directly to your door.
Therapeutic inhaled essential oil use, or TIEO for short, has proved to be a remarkably effective alternative to traditional, and often unpleasant, PONV remedies. But why are hospitals so reluctant to adopt the practice?
School season, seasonal colors, seasonal flu…fall is full of changes. Make sure you’re prepared.
To mark the launch of our new medical DuoBAND, founder Wendy Nichols explains how to use P6 acupressure bands, and how they can help medical professionals in the more traditional hospital setting.
Summer ain’t over yet! There’s still one week left before we can officially start preparing for fall, and what could be better than a classic camping playlist while watching the leaves change color.
Though it’s better now than when I first started giving anesthesia (ahem, in 1987), postoperative nausea and vomiting (PONV) is still a top concern for surgical patients, as well as the staff caring for them.
Finding happiness in difficult experiences is a tricky kind of alchemy, but cancer survivor Chris Dugan knows how to do just that.

Each year, nearly 16,000 children are diagnosed with cancer in the US. These pediatric cancers are often extremely aggressive and require repeated doses of chemotherapy.
So last week I spoke about the unfortunate encounter one unlucky woman had with essential oils, which both saddened and compelled me to write about the things you need to know when using essential oils – whether it is for yourself, your family or even your pets.
About a month ago, a woman named Elise Nguyen took to Facebook to share images of distressing burns on her skin, in a now-viral post that rapidly made its way through the online health and wellness community, and no doubt found its way into the halls of hospitals around the country.
Calling all moms to be!
It’s almost Mother’s Day (on Sunday, to be exact), and to celebrate we’d like to focus on the almost mothers: those wonderful women in their first, second and third trimesters who have been belly-deep in morning sickness remedies, parenting guides, and nursery decor decision-making…and need a bit of “me time.”
Picture this scenario:
It’s 4:40 PM in the afternoon. It’s been a very long day, and you are looking forward to heading home and getting a little downtime. Then you get a call from one of your regular clients, who is panicked, and convinced that Ginger has had a stroke.
So we have a new look, as you can see. Some of you are long-time users of all our products, and some of you are first-timers here. Here’s the lowdown on what’s new and what we do.
Soothing Scents started on the premise that natural remedies could be used as a legitimate and effective complementary addition to the medical setting, and to prove that, when used correctly, they do in fact help a lot of people, particularly those looking for more natural alternatives to help with recovery and healing.
So we set out on a science-informed mission to bring essential oil therapy into the medical space, and for almost 12 years we’ve been creating EO inhalers for hospitals, clinics, and nurses across the country.
When we started Soothing Scents almost 12 years ago, we entered the world of essential oil therapy from the opposite side of the spectrum that most manufacturers do: we came from the medical side.
So we had to learn about essential oils, and as with everything we do, we did so using a medical approach to research.
Not to be confused with a lunch special, but equally exciting.
From today, until the end of the month (that’s 31 March), we’re offering 20% off your first Soothing Scents purchase.
So, many of you may have noticed that we’ve been quiet the last few weeks,
and now you know why.
Today we’re thrilled to present our brand new website,
with our completely revamped product look.
