Reviews

“Alzheimer’s, Aromatherapy, and the Sense of Smell thoroughly decodes and describes Alzheimer’s disease, its complexities, potential causes, consequences, and considerations. Relating to current research and personal and professional experience, Jean-Pierre Willem presents a clear, easy-to-assimilate holistic overview of this debilitating condition in a way that is honest, enlightening, and especially hopeful, revealing both supportive and preventive strategies to proactively engage. As well as exploring the associated cognitive and emotional virtues of familiar essential oils, such as rosemary, lavender, and frankincense, Jean-Pierre also introduces less commonly known exotic oils that are native to Madagascar-- such as butterfly ginger, grains of paradise, and herbe des rois (herb of kings)--to provide an invaluable repertoire of useful essential oils and synergistic blends. This timely book is a valuable resource, not only for those affected by Alzheimer’s disease but also for anyone interested in maintaining their cognitive alertness, function, and well-being.”
