Aromatherapy for the Elderly and Alzheimer’s Patients

Rebeca Ledersnaider

Essential oils and touch are excellent ways to generate a state of well-being in older adults and people suffering from different dementias. By using them, we begin to generate feelings of security, offering comfort, and a unique, special and safe place for them, while also working on physical issues that may be present in their lives. Join Rebeca Ledersnaider for a discussion on aromatherapy for elderly and Alzheimer's patients. 


Originally from Cali Colombia, where she was pursuing a medical career, Rebeca moved to Mexico and received the title of Occupational Therapist in 1984 from the Mexican Institute of Rehabilitation, in Mexico City. Rebeca holds two aromatherapy certifications in the USA, one by Aromahead Institute (plus the Advance program) and the other by the Institute of Integrative Aromatherapy. She also studied the Advanced Clinical Aromatherapy program with Rhiannon Lewis in France, in 2008.

 All of this helped materialized her dream of being a voice for the safe use of essential oils and the aromatic plants from which they originate.

 In 2004, she founded Shaktili Aromatherapy and later Aromacademia, to promote aromatherapy education in Mexico and Latin America, stablishing the first Spanish speaking school recognized by the Alliance of International Aromatherapists and The Canadian Federation of Aromatherapists.

 In 2018 she received a master’s degree in Dermo pharmacy and Cosmetic Formulation from the International University of La Rioja in Spain. She also developed aromatherapy programs at many private schools and universities in Mexico City.

Parallel to her teaching, she offers volunteer services to different communities in the Mexican Republic as with the elderly and Alzheimer’s patients and is also working on building a network to support Mexican producers of aromatic plants and essential oils to promote their work.
