Aromatherapy

aromatherapy at Banner Estrella Medical Center, Phoenix, Arizona  

Banner Estrella offers aromatherapy to reduce our patients' pain, stress and anxiety.

This holistic tool is also used to aid sleep and Banner Estrella offers aromatherapy to help with a wide variety of issues related to hospitalization and treatment.

Our specially trained nurses use five different oil blends that have been prepared and approved for issues related to:

  • Pain
  • Anxiety
  • Nausea
  • Fatigue/Insomnia   
  • Alertness

The blends include essential oils such as lavender as a calming agent, rosemary to decrease tension and peppermint for cooling. The oils can be applied during a hand or foot massage or the mixture can be placed on a cotton ball or a piece of gauze so the patient can breathe in the soothing remedies.

Patients can request aromatherapy before and after surgery, for heart conditions and when undergoing cancer treatment in Women and Infant Services, the ICU and the Emergency department.
