Yoga and meditation as powerful tools to connect with yourself

When you are dedicated to activities such as meditation and yoga, it is necessary that the environment around you is the right background to promote concentration and relaxation. For this reason never underestimate the importance of pampering all 5 senses. Background music should evoke positive thoughts and peace. With aromatherapy it is possible to achieve the same goal, improving the mental state and predisposing us more to let go. In this case, only essential oils can be used to relax. With the help of an essential oil diffuser you can saturate the environment with pleasant natural fragrances that favor our state of serenity and tranquility.

Relax and focus your mind

Meditation and Yoga teach practitioners to relax, manage stress and increase the ability to focus and concentrate on themselves. Regular practice reduces muscle tension but it mainly reduces mental tension. During meditation you learn to observe and control your mind and the ability to focus your thinking on something allows your brain to concentrate. This also eliminates problems such as anxiety and overthinking. But it is way more than that. A clear mind also increases your ability to learn and store new information. Pranayama and meditation helps develop some areas of the brain that are not usually used. Awakening these areas increases your intuition as well as your ability to be fully present at any time of your life! At any moment and in any circumstance, even the hardest one!

Reduce Stress! Be healthy!

Reducing stress and anxiety leads to better overall health because you learn to slow down the pace. You learn  to breathe deeply and do one thing at a time to train your mind to focus on the very present moment. Also breathing consciously lets you eliminate all the unnecessary problems of everyday life. Giving you a whole new perspective and mindset to a more balanced and productive strong mind.

Yoga, meditation and essential oil diffuser: your best allies for a better health

Have you been longing for some relaxation? If the answer is yes I recommend using the right essential oils with a soothing, positive and anti-stress effect.

Here is a list of essential oils for your oil diffuser:

  • Sweet orange is used to combat depressive states,
  • Mandarin, lemon and lime have a stimulating and relaxing effect,
  • Cinnamon and vanilla have a relaxing effect, reducing stress and negative thoughts.
  • Lavender, patchouli and ylang ylang, which promote relaxation and improve mood.
  • Eucalyptus and Cypress amplify the breathing process.
  • Cedar, Incense, Mirra, Sandalwood to promote centering.
  • Basil, Peppermint, Rosemary to promote awareness in the breath.

How to get started

You can use essential oils in a wide range of applications. Use a single oil or multiple oil blends! Be creative and find out what you like! Our sense of smell influences many physiological pathways, including the stimulation of hormones and other processes in our body.

Aromatherapy is based on the predictable response of the body to specific olfactory stimuli.

This means that by breathing their scent we can stimulate or calm our mind during the activity of yoga.

  1. Try starting your yoga session by applying a drop of sweet orange essential oil to your wrists and inhale deeply. With each movement of your arms you will feel the energizing and exciting perfume of the essential oil that will give you energy and good mood.
  1. Pour 2 drops of your favorite essential oil in your oil diffuser to harmonize your environment.  
  1. Pour 2 drops of Ylang Ylang essential oil in a tablespoon of jojoba oil and apply a few drops on the arms spreading gently. Its perfume will help you relax and strengthen your thinking even in the most demanding positions that require greater concentration.

Best yoga and meditation practices with essential oils

One of the best yoga practice suitable with essential oils is yin yoga. Yin yoga is a great discipline to relax and to finally slow down your daily frantic rhythm. The yin is the opposite of the yang, to relax is the opposite of contracting. And it is precisely on relaxation that yin yoga is based. It seems like nothing, but requires a patience that needs to be acquired.

During yin yoga classes you will not find bodies covered with sweat: with this discipline you do not strengthen the muscles nor go in search of balance by performing complex positions. Instead, the meditative current of yoga is followed to find peace and regeneration.you
