These days yoga teachers are increasingly integrating essential oils into the yoga experience. And with good reason: These aromatic compounds—found in plant seeds, bark, stems, roots, and flowers—have long been a favorite with the aromatherapy crowd and those who tout the oils’ ability to enhance mental and emotional wellness.
Essential oils pair perfectly with the deep breathing encouraged in yoga. When you breath DEEP with a yoga flow you’re flooding your body with much-needed oxygen and improving your respiratory function, but you can also breathe in diffused or applied essential oils that enhance your goals, energy, mental clarity, relaxation, hormone balancing.
ways I like to use the oils with my yoga practice would be to.
1) Aromatherapy essential oil diffuser ,diffuse them into the air.
2) Wear them in Zia Zensations aromatherapy jewelry.
3) simply inhale the scent from the bottle before I start, during any breaks, and at the end while I breathe.
4) I will also rub them into my hands and inhale deeply or rub a few drops into my skin with a carrier oil like almond oil, coconut oil, . I love this method during the day or after a yoga practice, but I don’t recommend it right before yoga – your hand will be sliding all over your mat!
Using essential oils with yoga is one of the ultimate methods of self care.
