Aromatherapy for Hospice

     Dying is a process done by the living. In Hospice we strive to make those last precious moments of life as beautiful, as meaningful and as comfortable as possible.

 Aromatherapy is a powerful vehicle to do just that. If it can't hurt, and it might help, alternative modalites are often included at this stage of life, provided the patient and or family desire this aromatic tool. 

Aromatherapy For The Patient

Our most precious hospice formula, helpful for many of life's transitions. Elevates the spirits and promotes peaceful passages. This body oil was lovingly applied to the arms of my dying grandfather, who then passed on peacefully during sleep. Lemon and Juniper to cleanse the mind and body; hypnotic Frankincense facilitates spirituality.
