Abstract: Over the years, the oral route has been the preferred way of taking medication. There are cases in children and coma patients where olfaction is required, and Hahnemann is well aware that patients are advised to smell in many situations. Medication given this way usually works faster. The olfactory experience is subjective and the olfactory nerves are specific. Based on inclusion and exclusion criteria volunteers were selected and divided into 2 groups of oral and olfaction of 15 matched patients. Potency of remedy was based on totality of symptoms and susceptibility and according to the need of the patient, repetition was also done. Time taken for drug action and improvement of condition considered and recorded for adaptability. Data obtained statistically analyzed. The results thus obtained explain the benefit of olfaction over oral route of administration of the drug.
