A lot of people seek calming experiences from yoga for their everyday life. A moment, where they can take a break from their shopping lists, work phone calls and their own thoughts. Some also want yoga to improve their bodies, make it stronger, more limber and healthier. I’m not going to get deeper with yoga asanas here, but with essential oils you can get even better health benefits with your yoga practise.
Diffuse essential oils while doing yoga practise
Depending of the time of the day and the mood you are seeking for, with diffusing oils, you can affect your state of mind. With Lavender, Valor or Frankincense, you can relax your mind. You can get more energy with citrus oils, like Lemon, Lime or Wild orange. You only need two drops of essential oils to your diffuser
Essential oils on your skin during or after yoga practise
Before or after yoga, you can release tensions in your muscles with Lavender or Valor oil. You can put two drops to coconut or olive oil and on to your sour muscles. If you practise strength yoga, vinyasa yoga or ashtanga yoga and your muscles seem sour after, you can put two drops of peppermint oil or doTerra’s Deep Blue oil blend that releases pain from your muscles or joints. You can dilute the oils with coconut or olive oil.
