Extend the Benefits of Essential Oils
By using essential oils during yoga practice, you apply a scent to create a blissful memory. We may not be able to hold the yoga pose all day, but we can take the blissful memory with us. If you experience stress or need uplifting, you can easily apply the same scent that you used during your yoga practice to take you back to that blissful moment.
Using essential oils in your yoga practice enriches your experience. Diffuse your choice of scents or apply to your space or skin to feel the full effects. Choose your essential oil based upon what you want to get out of the session. If you need a reminder of that bliss, the scent can help take you back to that moment.
