Aromatherapy Tips for those living with Dementia
September 28 @ 1:00 pm - 1:30 pm
Essential oils have been used for generations to ease symptoms of depression, anxiety and insomnia. Some caregivers are now using these trusted oils to ease anxiety, boost memory and improve the mood of loved ones living with dementia.
Some recent findings: Lavender and lemon balm reduce anxiety and agitation. Peppermint can stimulate the appetite and support memory. Bergamot calms mood, fights depression, and aids sleep. Rosemary actually improves memory and cognition: there is clinical evidence for this! But I believe that research into the benefits of aromatherapy for Alzheimer’s is just beginning.
