How to get started with Aromatherapy for Seniors

I too am studying this area in my spare time. What I find worrying is that this seems to be a new fad in holistic care especially residential setting with older people. My worry is that there are serious implications which may complicate health conditions such as 'juniper' is suggested for urine infections, yet it is also suggested that people with kidney issues and older people should not use it. Grapefruit is another issue for people with heart conditions.

There is however a great opportunity to discuss the potential to bringing in holistic herbalists fully into health & social care network alongside OT's, psychologists who have themselves started their own professions on theoretical & user-based evidence.
