Today’s Aromatherapy Tip of the Day: December 11, 2013 is Using Essential Oils in Meditation Practice.
USING ESSENTIAL OILS IN MEDITATION PRACTICE
Meditation is trying to create stillness and peace in the mind, beyond the usual chatter and clutter that usually fills it. This is not to say meditation is about nothing. Meditation is about everything.
In meditation, we come into contact with a vast reservoir of energy, passing through ever deeper layers of ourselves. Fragrance provides something spiritual to focus on.
Among the floral essential oils, Jasmine, Linden Blossom, and Rose Maroc make particularly good meditation oils, either individually or in blends. Some people might find these aromas too heavy. Lighter floral essential oils, such as, Neroli and Rose Otto may feel more appropriate.
Any essential oil can be lightened by diluting it with a carrier oil.
