Aromatherapy has proven itself to be one of the methods by which CPAP users have grown not only to comply with their prescribed therapy, but to actually enjoy the nightly routine associated with using a CPAP machine and mask.
CPAP Aromatherapy is simple. The only requirement is a soothing drop of aromatic essential oil to be placed near the air inlet port of the CPAP machine. The essential oil should be a 100% pure and pleasing scent to which the user can associate positive feelings of enjoyment, serenity or satisfaction. As air is drawn into the CPAP machine the pleasing scent is delivered to the CPAP user, filling the user's mask with an aromatic scent that has a positive psychological impact on the user.
Aromatherapy can be used as a tool to be used even just temporarily until the patient associates positive results with CPAP therapy. Once positive results are achieved, there is likely to be an even stronger positive association with the aromatic scents being used. With this strong association will come a desire to continue to use aromatherapy.
In the end, it doesn't matter what causes a CPAP user to comply with therapy. It might be that the patient simply looks forward to a pleasant aromatherapy experience at night. It might be that the patient recognizes and actually feels the life-altering benefits of sleep apnea treatment. Whatever the case, everyone knows that compliance is the key to a successful therapy.
