Specifics:

This Masterclass is open to (clinical) aromatherapists, as well as massage therapists and nurses with basic aromatherapy knowledge, provided you (also) speak English. This Masterclass is specially designed to offer tools for health care professionals that work with the elderly and in dementia care.

Kicozo’s classes are always a combined and holistic approach to health and sickness. We look at the standard medical, nursing and therapeutical care, as much as the complementary approach. We also give background information on the typical discomfort and diseases that are often found in the elderly.

In this Masterclass we will explore some – often complex – health care issues that can accompany aging and will especially look at the very old, and those suffering from dementia and other psycho-geriatric diseases.
We always offer concise background information and build bridges to standard care, where safety is a high priority.

We look at several different types of pain that are more specific in the elderly. There is attention to optimum skin care for the dry and papery skin, to skin tears and wounds, and oral care or course.
And naturally much attention is paid to influencing mood and overall wellbeing. Think of treatment options for unrest and agitation, anxiety, etc.

You will learn how important essential oils, and especially CO2 extracts with their unique fragrance profiles, can be in the treatment of issues in elderly care.

Locations & Dates:

April 22 and 29, 2023

Day to day program:

  • We start with a short introduction of students, followed by a deep dive into smell and how scents are connected to autobiographical memories and how this may be of benefit to clients on their journey. After this we will talk about treatment options for emotional and spiritual wellbeing.
  • The second part focuses on issues such as pain and other symptoms towhich you may offer significant support.

You will receive mini tester vials with the most important aromatics of this course to experience live in your own home or office.

Intensive online workshop:

A fascinating online (7h over 2 days) interactive workshop to help you formulate safe and mild, yet powerful and effective products for all natural oral care, specialized skin & wound care for the (very) ill in a therapeutic setting. Think of supporting mucosal integrity for oral mucositis and dry mouth. We will also look at optimum skin care, especially cold sores and other herpes infections, moisture lesions, burns and badly healing wounds, including scar healing.
We will send you mini tester vials with the most important aromatics to experience live in your own home or office. Learn how essential oils and CO2 extracts can be powerful tools to support oral care and skin integrity and thereby contribute significantly to quality of life and wellbeing.

Intensive online workshop:
Complementing AromaTherapy with the best of CO2 Extracts

In this intensive online interactive workshop (7h over 2 days) I will offer you insights in the use and clinical applications of CO2 extracts in a variety of settings and for a range of indications, from fragrant sensory support for emotional and spiritual work to adding extra power to pain relief, respiratory infections and skin and wound care.
We will send you mini tester vials with those most exquisite aromatics to experience live in your own home or office.

I will discuss the technique of CO2 extraction and how it differs from conventional extraction methods. CO2 extracts  are often much richer in their variety of molecules than their equivalents that are conventionally extracted. This applies to extracts that we would use as essential oils – such as ginger, German chamomile, lavender, cinnamon and lemon balm, but also to extracts that we can use as base oils – such as calendula, evening primrose and sea buckthorn.

Learn how CO2 extracts can be powerful added tools in aromatherapy, offering the most complete plant fragrance, and extra special molecules and properties for the best of (patient) care.

General information:

In preparation for more extensive courses, workshops and Masterclasses, we will send handouts and aromatic mini vials ahead of the event to maximize your experience and really have a feel (and fragrance) about the oils I’m discussing. The “message in the bottle” will therefore come to life quite literally.
Classes are 7 hours (for 6 CE points) but during the online events there will be enough opportunities to take a break, and of course I’ll make sure that the classes and webinars will be fascinating and interesting form start to finish. There will also be time for Q & A’s of course, and if we should run out of time, we’ll plan a Q&A session afterwards.

Please look up how the times of the workshops work in your own specific time zone with this simple tool: https://www.thetimezoneconverter.com/

PS: registration is by email only through info@kicozo.nl. You will be invited to pay in advance through Mollie Payments, who accepts credit cards, after which you will be sent the course material.
