Aromatherapy Meditations Part 2
Try the following meditations in combination with the suggested aromatherapy blends and discover how the oils can enhance your meditative experience.
Mantra meditation is the repetition of a single word or phrase for a period of time. By doing this you clear your mind and shut off the internal dialogue in your head. This brings a feeling of peace and calm, and heightened awareness. Adding aromatherapy to this can enhance the effects of mantra meditation, as your senses are at their most receptive, and you will get the maximum benefit from the stimulatory and relaxing effects of the oils you use.
- Put two drops each of frankincense, ylang ylang and geranium oils into the water on your oil burner. This particular blend will enhance your mantra meditation, bring mental clarity and stimulate your awareness.
Choose a mantra which aligns with the mood that your oils blend produces as your meditate.
