Abstract

Aromatherapy is an ancient scent treatment that has gained a lot of attention in the contemporary research for its various benefits. The role of olfactory stimulation leading to neuropoeisis has been a major consideration for treating neurodegenerative disorders like dementia, Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s as well as psychiatric symptoms like mood disturbances, anxiety and sleep problems. The literature review has concentrated on the significance of the olfaction in the mammalian physiology and enlightened the hypothesis with noteworthy evidences to support the idea that with more research and clinical trials aromatherapy can attest to be a major breakthrough in treating Alzheimer’s disease and reversing neurodegeneration.
