Everything you need to know

You will need a Smell Training Kit made up of four fragrances. The Original Smell Training Kit is faithful to the studies that demonstrated the value of smell training using the aromas of Rose, Eucalyptus, Lemon and Clove. You can buy the Original Smell Training Kit from the AbScent online shop and all proceeds go straight back to the charity to help others living with smell disorders. Or you can make your own from the instructions in the video on this page.

It is hard to know how far you've come unless you know where you started. Use this handy self-assessment form to record where your smell ability is at the beginning of smell training.

Go back to the self assessment form in a few months to check your progress. Recovery can be slow, and you might not notice things changing.
