Testimonials From Our Clients!

"We use Jodi's patches at all our hospitals! There has been an incredible response in symptom relief for pain, anxiety, and nausea."

“Our VA survey process just finished, and I have to tell you they LOVED our program. They LOVE the aromatherapy patch the most. They said they were impressed by the “dignity” it offered to our veterans, rather than seeing "taped on cotton balls" they've seen at other sites.”

"We recently had an extremely anxious patient come through our doors and she was absolutely delighted when she was offered the aromatherapy patches.  She stated it really helped her maintain control over her anxiety when our RN’s were placing her IV in the pre-operative area".

"I work at a hospital where we use Jodi's patches - they are amazing and our patients love them! They have helped a ton on the floor (I work, medical/surgical). They work wonders!!"

“A week ago I had surgery and was offered an aromatherapy patch prior to surgery. Anyone facing surgery naturally has some degree of stress and apprehension! Thank you so much for making my pre-op experience less stressful.

"I wanted to reach out with our results after implementing our Aromatherapy Patch Program in our Mental Health Hospital. The results have been even better than I expected, and I had high expectations! Here are our results: A decrease in patient self-reported symptoms of 50.02%."
