Watching the deterioration of the intellect of a loved one is a difficult and heartbreaking experience. There is unfortunately no cure for dementia and Alzheimer's, but studies have shown that aromatherapy can help ease and/or delay the different symptoms such as easing anxiety, decreasing agitation, boosting memory, improving sleep, improving digestion, and improving the mood and quality of life of loved ones living with this condition.
The Department of Biological Regulation, School of Health Science, Faculty of Medicine, Tottori University in Japan, studied the effects of aromatherapy on patients with Alzheimer's disease, in which results showed significant improvement in personal orientation related to cognitive function after therapy. In conclusion they found aromatherapy an effective non-pharmacological therapy for dementia, and that aromatherapy may have potential for improving cognitive function especially in Alzheimer's disease patients.
Our Dementia/Alzheimer's (Day) blend contains generous amounts of Rose Absolute's richly restoring properties, and other essential oils which are refreshing, stimulating to the senses, and comforting to the emotions. I recommend using both our Day and Night blends for a more balanced effect and experience.
Method Of Use: Diffuser, bath, massage (diluting in a carrier oil and massaging the oil on to the neck, shoulders, hands, arms or feet of the person is pleasing to the Alzheimer's sufferer's senses, and a way by which love can be conveyed, and may help bring back the closeness and method of communication when there is no other).
Safety: Do not use if you have epilepsy or high blood pressure. Message us and Tania will create you an alternative Day blend for your loved one.
