If you have a family member living with Alzheimers and would like to have a private one to one wellness consultation please contact me.

Every dementia patient is different and requires different oils for different symptoms so it is always good to discuss with a Wellness Advocate. I will offer samples to try to find oils that the patient enjoys and responds to.
