Ensure Safe Use if Your Hospital Allows Essential Oils

Your pharmacy may get requests to add essential oils to formulary.

Essential oils are all the rage on social media...and they're edging into healthcare. For example, you may see peppermint tried for post-op nausea and vomiting...or lavender for pain or anxiety.

At home, patients inhale essential oils, often with a diffuser to disperse into the air...apply them topically...or sometimes take them orally.
