Calming memories of Grandmother Lucy

Share Button

We just sent out our newsletter, as we anticipate Spring, watching the snow fall around the hills in our beautiful valley. I’m getting nostalgic about one of my favorite memories of my beautiful, sweet Grandmother, Lucille. She was diagnosed with Dementia many years ago. When I visited her at the assisted living home, I always carried a bottle of Lavender essential oil with me. It helped bring calming peace into her room when I would apply a few drops to a ceramic diffuser, that I hung up on a light switch next to her bed. She always liked to look her best (as all ladies do), so I would brush her hair, and curl it with a tiny curling iron, and take time, giving her my loving touch! Spending time with her, seeing her smile, and loving on her, brought us both much joy! I’m so very thankful for her calm, pleasant spirit, during all that she went through.  🙂

Sometimes I would apply a few drops to the hand cream by her bed, and give her a hand & arm massage, and rub the cream with oil, onto the back of her neck and shoulders. It always calmed her down, and helped her sleep more peacefully.

I loved my Grandmother Lucille (Lucy), and will hold her in my heart forever. <3

  1. Hello-I enjoyed your little story about your grandmother–there is nothing nicer than being pampered wtih lavender and this is a lovely story. My mother, Edith, 95, resides in British Columbia, too many miles away but whenever I do get a chance to visit I like to give her a neck massage with lavender cream or just rub her back ~ this story made me think of her. Thank you.

  2. Hi Claudia, Thank you for your kind words. Awww..very sweet to touch her with your hands & lavender cream. Treasure every moment you can with her.
    Best to you both.
