With so much information about aromatherapy and Yoga at your fingertips, how do you put it all together? Find out how to select essential oils to complement your postures.
Many people turn to aromatherapy and Yoga to relieve the stress of everyday living. Combined, the two disciplines can create a profound sense of peace and tranquility.
- The Lotus is a classic pose used for meditation and pranayama (breathing) exercises. When performing the Lotus select essential oils that are known to calm the mind or aid the respiratory system.
- You might choose frankincense oil, which not only calms the mind but also promotes slow, deep breathing.
- Frankincense blends well with myrrh, which has an expectorant action on the respiration system.
For an uplifting and stress relieving Yoga meditation at the end of the day, burn Frankincense and myrrh oils.
