Spearmint oil should be used as an appetizer for those of low weight. Applying spearmint oil to a moist cloth and then using it to wash their hands before dinner to stimulate the elderly’s appetite. It is advised that spearmint oils be administered 15-20 minutes before feeding to improve appetite.
Frankincense was known to alleviate achiness and joint pain when massaged on the face. Like lavender, it is also believed to help create a sense of calmness and relaxation. You can apply drops of frankincense to a cotton ball and put it in their pillowcase to encourage relief.
Essential oils are very helpful in relieving the elderly’s daily problems such as joint pains and low appetites.
