Aroma Inspired Oils for Your Pilates or Yoga Practice

2013-09-18 19.35.13Essential oils have the power to do so much for your life. They can make an earache disappear, boost your mood, relieve anxiety, help your sleep, boost your metabolism, decrease joint pain, detoxify your house, rid the bugs from your garden, the possibilities are endless.

 

How about incorporating them into your Pilates or Yoga Practice?

Calming Blend:

Finding Calming Blend in your practice can some times be the hardest thing. Trying to find clarity and calmness almost seems impossible in today’s chaotic and hectic world. Silencing the chatter inside your head seems nearly unimaginable. Leave the to do list, the hustle and bustle, the racing of the clock, the constant dinging of your phone or email box at the door. Find centering, peace, quiet, and focus on yourself for that one-hour. Add a drop to the inside of your wrists, side of your neck, diffuse into the air, even rub some on the bottom of your feet to reduce anxiety and stress. Calming Blend also promotes a clear open-mind, relaxation, calm, and a stress-free environment.

Citrus Bliss:

Citrus Bliss is a mood booster, it invigorates and is uplifting. It also helps reduce stress, helps with emotional balance, and boosts the immune system. It can be applied to the skin or diffused into the air. Place a couple drops in a spray bottle with some water and spritz onto your mat. Promote happiness, revitalize, distress, and reduce tension. Bring some positivity and uplift to your practice, as well as your day.

 

Grounding Blend:

This is one of my favorite oils. Rub on the bottom of your feet, dab at the wrists, or diffuse into the air. This oil will keep you grounded and into your practice. Grounding Blend also helps create a sense of gentleness, calmness, peace, and relaxation. Use it to harmonize, promote a sense of balance, and tranquility. (Don’t we all need this!) Sometimes I wear this one as a scent or perfume for everyday life.

These are just a few of the oils I use personally and at my studio with my classes, my practice, and I share with my clients. They aid in the healing process of everyday stress and life as well as help take your Pilates or Yoga practice to another level.
