Improve Your Meditation Practice With Aromatherapy

Meditation can be challenging, but just a few drops of essential oils can help you improve your meditative routine.

The busy modern life catapults the importance of meditation. And although this practice allows us to relax our mind and take a little vacation from stress , it is not always easy to create a meditative routine and promote healthy and positive mental contemplation.

The secret to making this process much easier and more beneficial may lie in one of our five senses: smell. When we focus on the present, our ability to feel intensifies, so by using aromatherapy to complement our meditation, we can achieve greater clarity and peace of mind, promoting our spiritual connection and relaxation.

STIMULATE THE SENSE OF SMELL

The scientific community has discovered that there are some aromas capable of slowing our heart rate and helping the body to relax, such as lavender, known for improving sleep quality, reducing anxiety and combating insomnia.

In addition to wearing comfortable clothes, having your space organized and having the ideal music (or desired silence) for your meditative practice, including a specific aroma in this ritual will enrich it and make it even more special. Try massaging your temples with lavender essential oil to slow down your nervous system. Gently inhale this essence and let your mind and body enter a journey of deep serenity.

ESSENTIAL OILS IN MEDITATION

Incorporating essential oils into meditation can help center the mind and dispel negative energy. We can choose to use an aromatic diffuser to let the essential oil release into space so that we can inhale it. This inhalation can help stimulate the senses, leaving us more serene and creating the necessary concentration environment so that the focus remains on the present moment. We can also apply essential oils directly to the skin during any meditative practice: on the palms of the hands, pulse points or temples, for example.

Try our essential oils to obtain all the therapeutic benefits during your serenity rituals and improve your meditations with our products, which are completely natural and suitable for this purpose.

Because essential oils are extremely pure, they must be diluted in a carrier oil (example: coconut oil) or skin cream to ensure their safety. Test a small area of ​​your skin with the diluted oil and, if it reacts, you will need to dilute the oil further or choose a different scent. If you are pregnant, you should consult your doctor before using any essential oil.

THE BEST SCENTS FOR MEDITATING

According to several aromatherapy experts, lavender and peppermint are some of the best essential oils to help us relax, thanks to their calming properties.
