The Oshadhi essential oils that Best Alzheimer's Products offers for sale are among the purest available anywhere. We stock a variety of oils that are beneficial for people with dementia including Alzheimer's, and for the caregivers of those people.
In addition to individual oils, we offer a number of Therapeutic Synergy Blends. A synergy is a blend of essential oils whose action has a greater total effect than the sum of the individual oils. Oshadhi Synergies have been created for specific therapeutic effects that address common, everyday situations. These blends are named for their application and their specific benefit.
The product page for each oil includes extensive information about that oil, including a description of the smell, that oil's affect, and some considerations like, "Avoid the sun ".
Some suggestions for use:
- Peppermint oil and Rosemary are stimulating and can improve appetite. Use these early in the day.
- Lavender oil and Lemon Balm (Melissa officinalis) have a calming effect and have proven useful in treating agitation. Used later in the day they can promote better sleep.
- Many oils have extremely pleasing and/or familiar aromas and can contribute to an engaging and invigorating atmosphere. These include, but certainly aren not limited to frankincense, lavender, cedarwood, bergamot, lime, jasmine, rosemary, and others. There is, of course, a subjective element to this. Not all available oils are listed here, but we can get any oil you want. Please call the toll free number above.
- In addition to treating dementia symptoms in a very pleasing way, many aromatherapy oils create a healthier environment. Tea tree and eucalyptus oils have been clinically shown to kill the flu virus when diffused into the air. Sweet orange, lemon, and grapefruit oils are all antimicrobial; these essential oils also help cleanse the blood of toxins. Other Aromatherapy oils that help cleanse and purify the air include lemon, peppermint, eucalyptus, cinnamon, and chamomile. In fact, most essential oils have multiple benefits for our health.
