Everyone is different and reactions to fragrances such as essential oils are no different. For some people (neurodiverse and neurotypical) using essential oils is highly supportive, however it is good to be aware that around 30% of the neurotypical population are sensory sensitive (but not necessarily to smell) and a higher rate (but not all) neurodiverse individuals have sensory sensitivities (again this is general sensory sensitivities, not necessarily to smell). So when planning to use any fragrance, including essential oils, particularly when diffused into a shared environment, we would encourage you to consider the potential for sensory and/or allergy sensitivities of those that will be using the space.
