Clinical Aromatherapy tips for dementia-related behaviors

This post is dedicated to our family who has learned together, cried together, mourned together through the journey of dementia… Grandpa Marvin Marshek passed away on March 9, 2011. And his legacy lives on today because of what we learned through that journey. We now share that knowledge with others.

And a whole-hearted THANK YOU to Samantha Lee Wright for the podcast spot to talk further on this topic! These tips and below cheat sheets are mentioned in this episode. Hope they are helpful for you!

“Aromatherapy is possibly the most simple of complementary therapies to integrate
because when we inhale air, we inhale aroma, although we are usually unaware of it.”

– Mehmet Oz, MD

Employing essential oils (aromatherapy) in a clinical environment complements techniques like pet therapy, color therapy, music therapy, occupational therapy, etc. And the techniques are simple. Whether we are aware of it or not, we are affected by the aromas around us every minute of every day.

In this blog post I’m breaking down my tried & true tips for using the best selling Starter Bundle from Young Living to support those living with dementia (the resident AND the caregiver / family member). This post does not contain claims for healing from any disease. I am not a doctor. I am a family member who has lost someone to this disease, I am a researcher / teacher, and I want to share this good info.

I created the following graphics to be placed in “med rooms” of memory care communities and shared with family members who were eager to learn about and use their Young Living Essential Oils Starter Bundle (and more) to support life through the journey of memory loss / dementia.

Working with many memory care communities in my area of the Pacific Northwest, I have printed / laminated these images for use, under RN supervision. Keep in mind, in a clinical setting, applying anything to the skin must be under a prescriptive order. So – we got creative! See info below…

INTERESTING INFO about olfactory dysfunction…

Olfactory dysfunction is thought to be a marker for detecting early Alzheimer’s Disease. While aromatherapy is not a cure for dementia, smell and touch are powerful messengers, often penetrating the fog of amnesia in a way words do not. Knasko and Gilbert (1990) suggest patients normally unable to communicate would find it “refreshing to have a nonverbal interaction with their environment”.

Flanagan (1995) reported on the use of a variety of essential oil to improve atmosphere and behavior in institutionalized patients with Alzheimer’s. One patient, who was so combative he required sedation injections, changed dramatically when a cotton ball with essential oil of lavender was pinned to his shirt lapel. No, he no longer needs medication if the cotton ball can be pinned to his shirt in time. Kilstoff and Chenoweth (1998) reported on the effect of aromatherapy on patients in a multicultural dementia day-care center in Australia for a period of 18 months. They used a combination of lavender, mandarin, and geranium essential oils diluted in a hand massage. Patients were have thought to have become more alert and less agitated, although it was unclear whether this from the hand massage or the essential oils. The use of aromatherapy appeared to have had a positive effect on the staff and caregivers as well, possibly because of empowerment.

A personal note from Lori

I wish our family was familiar with essential oils when my Grandpa Marvin was dealing with dementia, and the various behaviors that popped up due to the disease. And personally, I wish our family members were aware of the benefits of essential oils… for our own emotional support, for those of our caregivers / extended family / etc.

Knowing what I know now about the benefits of aromatherapy, here’s what I would recommend for the patient / memory care resident

Fun fact – most dollar stores have tiny stuffed animals on keychains. Those work great on button holes of sweaters, attached to a blanket, etc… when the patient / resident fidgets with the stuff animal what happens? AROMATHERAPY! In one community I worked with, this was one of the care plans instituted by the RN for anyone who was helping one particular resident get dressed in the morning. That resident rarely had behavioral issues when 1 drop of White Angelica was placed on her keychain kitty every morning. What a life changer for her!

#Protip – Did you know orange essential oil could stimulate the salivary glands? One community started to place warm / wet wash cloths at each place setting for when resident sat down in the dining room. The wash cloths had been soaked in warm water with YL’s Orange essential oil added to it (in a crock pot). Each resident was given the suggestion to wash their hands with the wash cloth before eating lunch, and face. You know what this memory care community found? Many of their residents who were losing weight due to lack of appetite started to gain weight, or maintain weight – the only change was the orange-infused wash cloths!

Going a step further, knowing what I know now about the benefits of essential oils, here’s some tools I would recommend for the family members / caregivers of the patient / resident…

Caregivers / Family Members: I want to speak from my heart, directly to YOU for a minute. Caring for someone with dementia is difficult on its own. Watching the breakdown of the mind and the body is a whole different emotional stress. Please schedule time to take care of yourself. Call friends. Take a break. Go for a drive. Use emotional support tools to give you what you need. Do not forsake taking care of yourself.

The statistics surrounding the health decline of those caring for their loved ones are scary. So, be intentional about your care. This is so important!

Book recommendation

If you don’t know much about dementia as a disease, I highly recommend the following book: “Learning to Speak Alzheimers“. We read it as a family. It helped us understand the disease and what happens to the mind / body, and prepared us for decisions we had to eventually make.

Further aromatherapy info

The following information was shared in an article from Alzheimers.net: 
“Manage Dementia’s Side Effects – As the search continues for a cure for Alzheimer’s and related dementias, some research suggests that aromatherapy and the use of essential oils may treat certain symptoms of the disease.

While research on the effectiveness of essential oils is still evolving, some studies have shown aromatherapy can:

Ease symptoms of anxiety – Improve the quality of life for people living with chronic health conditions

Oils may be inhaled, applied to the skin, or placed in food or tea depending on the type of oil and its level of concentration. (Note from Lori – remember, in a clinical setting, applying to skin can only be done with a prescription.)

While oils have been used for generations and many are thought to be safe, essential oils are not regulated by the Food and Drug Administration, so be sure to consult with your doctor before using to ensure oils will not have any negative interaction with medication.

In addition to the therapeutic benefits of the oils themselves, studies have also shown that sensory stimulation for people with Alzheimer’s can decrease agitation, improve sleep and improve the overall quality of life for those living with the disease.

7 Essential Oils That May Help Those Living with Dementia – Here are oils that have been shown to be effective in treating and controlling different symptoms of dementia:

1. Lavender – Lavender is thought to be calming and able to balance strong emotions. It has also been used to help with depression, anger and irritability, and can help in some cases of insomnia. Lavender can be directly inhaled, used a massage oil or sprayed on linens.

2. Peppermint – Peppermint is an energizer and can be used to stimulate the mind and calm nerves at the same time. Best used in the morning, peppermint oil can be inhaled directly, diffused in a room, used as a massage oil, sprayed in the air or even placed in a bath.

3. Rosemary – Similar to peppermint, Rosemary is an uplifting oil used to stimulate the mind and body. It may even improve cognitive performance and mood. Rosemary has also been known to ease constipation, symptoms of depression and also reinvigorate the appetite. Rosemary oil can be directly inhaled, diffused through a room or used as a spray.

4. Bergamot – Bergamot can be used to relieve anxiety, agitation, mild depression and stress. This mood elevating and calming oil can also be used to relieve insomnia. To use bergamot oil, place a few drops in a bath, use as a massage oil, diffuse through a room or use a spray on clothing or linens.

5. Lemon – Lemon oil is one of the most studied and more effective oils. It has been shown to help calm and relax people who are dealing with anxiety and insomnia, improve memory and ease indigestion. Lemon oil can be dropped into a bath, inhaled directly, diffused, sprayed or applied directly to the skin as a massage oil.

6. Ylang Ylang – Ylang Ylang oil can help ease depression while also promoting good sleep. This is a great oil not only for a person living with Alzheimer’s, but also for caregivers struggling with restlessness and lack of sleep. Ylang Ylang is often combined with lemon oil and can be placed in a bath, inhaled, diffused or sprayed.

7. Ginger – Ginger oil is helpful for anyone struggling with digestion issues. Commonly used to treat a loss of appetite and constipation, ginger can help promote good eating habits. Ginger oil can be applied directly to the skin as an abdominal massage, inhaled, diffused, sprayed or placed on a compress.”

“Of all the complementary therapies, aromatherapy is perhaps the most misunderstood. It is maligned, misrepresented, and can be very confusing. Even the name aromatherapy is a misnomer. Contrary to popular belief, aromatherapy is not just about smells! It is little wonder that orthodoxy ridicules what the perfume industry guards so well.” – Jane Buckle, RN, PhD

I am happy to share this here for others who are journeying down this road. Additionally, I have since helped many memory care communities in assessing needs for their residents who are exhibiting specific dementia-related behaviors. I can assist families by giving them tools that will support their in-home needs. Additionally, I can empower memory care professionals / nurses with establishing care plans for their teams, to be used in a clinical environment. Let’s support natural, healthy behaviors!

January Oil Spotlight: Winter Nights

OIL SPOTLIGHT: WINTER NIGHTS

  • Has a fresh, woodsy aroma
  • Creates an uplifting, relaxing, serene environment
  • Invites the peaceful feeling of cozy winter nights into your home
  • A wonderful addition to DIYs
  • Can be used with massage for a relaxing, invigorating experience
  • Contains Northern Lights Black Spruce

Winter Nights essential oil blend is THE oil for the winter season! Not only is the aroma crisp and cool and comforting, this blend contains both Cedarwood and Northern Lights Black Spruce – both of which are ‘tree’ oils. Tree oils are a favorite this time of year for good reason. They are calming and grounding for the emotions, they have immune support properties, and they can help support the body’s natural response to pain and inflammation. Add in the muscle and joint support of Peppermint and the bright, happy aroma of Orange, and this blend definitely sounds like something we want to keep on and around our bodies this time of year!

BACKGROUND

Young Living’s exclusive Winter Nights essential oil blend features Northern Lights Black Spruce essential oil, produced exclusively at the Northern Lights Farm and Distillery in British Columbia, Canada. Established in 2014, this farm remains a pristine landscape to grow and harvest the botanical for one of Young Living’s most-beloved essential oils. Orange, produced at the Amanzi Amahle Cooperative Farm in South Africa, and Peppermint, produced at the Labbeemint Partner Distillery in Washington, USA, join to add some brightness and effervescence to the Winter Nights blend and to elevate the forest-ey notes of Black Spruce and Cedarwood.

KEY CONSTITUENTS

Constituents are naturally occurring compounds in plants (and therefore essential oils) that give them sprecic health-supporting properties:

  • Limonene: known for its anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, anti-stress support, this is a powerful constituent with many health benefits.
  • Alpha-pinene and beta-pinene: a powerful antioxidant, some studies have shown these constituents to support the body through inflammation and to help calm the mind
  • Bornyl acetate: may help calm and focus the mind

WINTER NIGHTS & EMOTIONS

According to Ayurveda, the ancient Indian medical tradition, our health is a holistic balance of mind, body, and spirit, with each person having a dominant energy type, or dosha. During the winter months we are more inclined to rest and hibernate, which can often lead to the winter blues. Winter is the season of kapha, the dosha marked by a certain heaviness, a tendency toward mental fog, and sometimes weight gain. However, we can work with the body and energy type can help lift the lethargy of winter. Oils can help us sit in this seasonal shift without lowering our emotional energy!Create an application ritual with Winter Nights and any other oils you choose to add. This ritual is a reminder to not hold on to destructive feelings, which can happen when there’s too much kapha.

  • Gently rub the skin between your toes to create warmth in the area. Massage in four to five drops of your chosen oil, spending about three to five seconds between each toe.
  • With the oil still on your fingers and palms, massage the bottoms of your feet, spending thirty seconds on each one.
  • Move up to your wrists and gently massage the area with your thumb; spend ten to fifteen seconds on each wrist.
  • Next, move to the ears; use your fingers to massage the area behind your ears in circles for fifteen seconds.
  • Floating up to the forehead, massage your temples with your forefingers in circles for ten seconds.
  • Finally, cup your palms over your nose and mouth and take five deep inhales.

WINTER EMOTIONS + YOGA

Yoga can have a profound impact on improving energy levels, especially during the winter months. Begin your day with a sun salutation to capitalize on the energy of the sun. Focus on asanas to invigorate a healthy kapha.

  • Choose a diffuser blend below, and set it near your mat.
  • Apply oils to the crown of the head (it won’t make your hair greasy if you don’t rub it in, just drop it!), wrists and heart.
  • Breathe deeply, repeat a positive mantra or focus on a word or intention you want to manifest.

DAILY HABITS WITH WINTER NIGHTS:

We love diffusing it, applying it topically to our feet (the easiest way is to get some roller balls and some carrier oil and then use that!), even taking it internally. This blend is a household staple and a must for winter wellness!

CBD Muscle Rub – This is a crowd favorite for sure! From the mamas chasing kids all day to the dedicated athlete to those wanting relief from arthritis or muscle pain, so many individuals are loving the CBD muscle rub!

Topical CBD diffuses across your skin and reaches local targets, like muscles, inflammatory cells, and pain-perceiving nerves, and using essential oil infused CBD in a muscle rub can help ease the discomfort associated with sore muscles, aches and pain

Lemon Essential Oil – Versatile, bright and joyful. That’s how we would describe this oil! Lemon essential oil benefits skin and hair as much as its aroma enhances your environment and supports your mood, This best-selling favorite can be used in so many ways: Mix it with your cleaning products, use it during your nighttime skin care routine, or add a drop to your shampoo & conditioner for a great scent. One of the main ways we are using it this month though is for a gentle system reset and as part of our immune wellness routine!

Winter Nights Essential Oil Blend – Winter Nights essential oil blend is a winter staple! This combination of Northern Lights Black Spruce, Peppermint, Cedarwood, and Orange is crisp and cool and reminiscent of softly falling snow. Winter Nights fills your home with the peace of crisp midnight air in winter, and the warmth of cozy spaces, making it perfect for this time of year!

Pure Protein Complete – When it comes to creating new health habits, workouts are usually at the top of the list. And we want to give our bodies proper nutrition to support those workouts! Enter Pure Protein Complete. This proprietary five-protein blend is our favorite for smoothies and workout shakes! These clean ingredients provide 25 grams of protein and a full range of branched-chain amino acids plus B vitamins, essential oils, and a proprietary enzyme complex that includes probiotics. These ingredients work together to support ATP production and metabolism, help build lean muscle mass, and support post-workout muscle recovery.

ICP Daily – Health starts in the gut, so we want to do everything we can to have a happy, healthy belly! And having a healthy gut isn’t something just for those with gut disorders.. It is for us all. Taking daily steps to build, support, detoxify and balance gut bacteria and intestinal lining is crucial, and one of our favorite, simple ways to do this is with ICP Daily! ICP Daily is a daily prebiotic and fiber drink that is both delicious and easy on the stomach.

It is this constituent that gives Eucalyptus Radiata its camphorous aroma and incredible respiratory support properties!
