Aromatherapy is a great complement to yoga. Pleasant aromas help encourage deep breathing, one of the eight limbs of yoga. Here are some other ways to incorporate essential oils during your practice.
- Spritz hydrosols (flower water) in the room where you are practising yoga to set the mood.
- Anoint yourself with frankincense or sandalwood oils for meditation.
- Use an antibacterial blend to clean your mat.
- Diffuse oils during practice to create ambience.
