The power of scent is palpable. We can smell baby powder and be immediately transported back to a time when we had no worries to consume our minds. We may become invigorated by citrusy aromas and calmed by a scent such as lavender. By applying some of the basic principles of aromatherapy, you can transform your mood from one of anxiety to one of tranquility.
A recent study shows that aromatherapy shows mild effectiveness in Dementia Treatment. Aromatherapy with chamomile, lavender and rosemary with other essential oils may give relief from anxiety as well as emotional disturbances in adults with dementia.

Aromatherapy helps to ease agitation, improves cognitive function of the seniors. When you plan to continue aromatherapy for dementia treatment, you must consult with a medical professional who will discuss about the benefits of aromatherapy and also its side effects because clinical evidence shows that aromatherapy are not much effective treatment for dementia.
Rene Descartes experiment is to melt the wax to try to prove existence. Rene Descartes also shares with us what is happening to the wax while it is close to fire.
When he imagines things he seems to hear and see things. The Meditator realizes that he can exist without his imagination so then imagination must rely on something other then the mind. Imagination is connected to the body, which allows the mind to picture objects. With this being said the mind turns outward towards the body. He knows that his body experiences involuntary things like pain, hunger, pleasure, emotion, and thirst. He also understands that other bodies have s certain shape, movement, color, smell, and taste. The Meditator uses an example of a piece of wax coming from a honeycomb to help explain how we come to know what is really true. He first realizes what he knows about the piece of wax. He uses his senses to see the color, shape, and size of the honeycomb. He also uses his senses of taste and smell to actually know the taste of the piece of wax and the way it smells. If you place the piece of wax near a hot surface like a fire all the sensible qualities change so fast. The knowledge of the melted piece of wax cannot have come through the same senses because the properties that he has once seen have changed. He knows now that the wax is that it is extended, flexible, and changeable. He did not come to that conclusion through his senses but he didn’t come to it through his imagination either. He knows the wax has thee
The tangible characteristics are no longer present, and the wax melts. The melting, replaces the honey flavor with nothing, the flower scent with no scent, the cold and hard become the hot and liquid, the wax becomes too hot to touch let alone make a noise when rapped upon, the color changes, the shape shifts, and the size increases. Thus, everything Descartes thought to note about the wax had changed or disappeared. In his original description, he relied only upon his sense to explain the wax. But after that has failed him, Descartes calls into doubt his senses and decides to define the wax without the use of his senses. The problem Descartes runs into with this line of thinking is he now is trusting his senses to discount what his sense told him a first time. Therefore, Descartes must neglect to use his senses for the new description of the wax. Leaving his only knowledge of the wax to be its condition to change, Descartes’ new description of the wax states “only that it is something extended, flexible, and mutable … rather, I perceive it through the mind alone” (67-68). Descartes limits his knowledge from qualitative descriptions and only uses quantitative measures from his
Based on this experiment, the rate at which a birthday candle burns is 0.1368 grams per minute. Observation showed the decrease in mass through the melting of the wax. The evidence was shown in the beaker with cold water, in which the melted was collected. The data collected supported the observation in the decrease of mass. As the time the candle was burned increased, the mass of the candle decreased. The graph demonstrates this relationship through the negative slope. Using the graph, the time at which the candle would completely burn off would be eight minutes, because that is the x-intercept in this graph. The equation of the graph can also be used to calculate the mass of the candle after singing “Happy Birthday”. In order to calculate

What is aromatherapy? In an article titled “Phytotherapy Research” by Amr Edris, he describes aromatherapy as, “The use of essential oils and their volatile constituents are widely to prevent and treat human disease.” Aromatherapy is said to be an alternate form of medicine that uses essential oils, which are made up of volatile plant materials. With these essential oils it is said that they help to alter a person’s mood, health, mind, and cognitive function. It is also said that aromatherapy could substitute as treatment or prevention for certain diseases. There are many different types of oils used for aromatherapy in different ways for different outcomes. Such methods include the topical application, aerial diffusion, and direct inhalation. Topical application is any direct contact with the oil, used such as placing the oil in a bath or directly on to the skin. Aerial diffusion is where the oil is placed on the carpet around you or even on to a pillow or bed. Direct inhalation is a method where the oil is placed on the hands and rubbed together then while cupping your hands under your face to inhale the oils, this has a very powerful effect when used. Some uses of aromatherapy are for used as anti-depressants, relive stress, help with relaxation, insomnia, acne, itching and many more. To cure anxiety lavender, chamomile, rose, vanilla, and cardamom oils are all used for this. Lemon, jasmine, rosemary, sandalwood, and peppermint oils are all used to help with depression. When dealing with fatigue it is said that basil, cedarwood, clove, and eucalyptus all help. Headaches can be cured with lemon grass, thyme, ginger, and cinnamon oils. Caraway, chamomile, lavender, and rosemary oils are all used to help with menstrual cramps. The...
Flame Retardants Flame retardants refer to a class of several chemicals that are used to slow or prevent the ignition or growth of fires. A variation of different chemicals, with diverse properties and structures, are combined in different ways to suit the different types of materials to make them fire-resistant without interfering with their intended use or performance. Since the 1970’s, FRs have been and still are widely added or applied to a big variety of major consumer products.
