Essential oils and yoga belong together. They are both amazing wellness tools that can help you achieve a more balanced and happy lifestyle. Used properly, they can be a beautiful compliment to a yoga practice and a powerful part of your yoga classes.
If you are looking for ideas on how to integrate essential oils in your practice, here are a few of my favourite tips to get you on track toward a healthier, uplifted you!
Essential Oil Routine Examples..
1 - Begin with doTERRA Breathe. To connect yourself more deeply to your breathing, place a drop or two in your palms and bring them in a tent to your face. Close your eyes and focus on your breathing.
2 - Use Peppermint to get going. Place a few drops at the top of the mat and create a circle. Peppermint works a lot like a mantra; it helps you to focus and has calming properties. It also is a great reminder to breathe and a perfect match for Pranayama to promote clear breathing, open airways and clarity of mind. Place one drop into the palms of hands, cup the hands with your eyes closed, place your hands in front of your face and take 3 deep breaths.
3 - Use doTERRA Balance right before corpse pose. Place the oil on your feet to help you relax into the pose.
4 - Using Lavender or Roman Chamomile just before settling into a position for relaxation will encourage focus and calming of the body and mind.
5 - Using Wild Orange will inspire creativity and support a positive mood. Place a drop on the palms of your hands, cup your hands and breathe in before a pose / Asana. It is great to use doing Downward Dog and Bridge Pose.
6 - Use these essential oils to assist in letting go of negativity and to open the emotional body - Frankincense, Bergomot, Clary Sage and Lavender. Try them out when you are Standing in Crescent Moon or Standing in Forward Bend.
7 - For grounding postures like Warrior 11 and Sukhasana or Easy Pose try tree based oils to help connect you to the earth and become present in the moment - Cedarwood, Vetiver, Sandalwood.
