In our day-to-day life, there appears to be numberless stress hidden in every situation. Stress leaves us with the feeling of burnt out, anxiety, and broke by the end of the day. We begin searching for a glass of wine or binge-eating chocolates to find calm, but instead why not try meditation?
Aromatherapy & Meditation has been around for centuries. It can help bring balance back to your mind-body health, calm, and organize your thoughts, redirect negative thoughts to the product solutions, and most of all help regulate stress.
For many, meditation can be a discouraging task leaving us feeling even more stressed out at the prospect of “doing nothing”. How can one simply sit in silence for extended periods of time just listening to their own mind chatter?
Well, let me introduce you to Aromatherapy & Meditation For Stress Release. Meditation allows us to relax our minds, generate positive thoughts, and focus upon a particular point of reference. The act of meditating helps give us a mini-vacation from the stresses of the day. The use of aromatic essential oils during meditation can enhance the experience by grounding you and promoting a sense of calm.
Meditation with aroma oils has a curative effect, not only on our mind but also on our body. Meditating next to an aroma lamp with the right blends helps focus and generate good thoughts.
Now a question may arrive … How do you meditate with aromatherapy?
Two ways of using aromatherapy with meditation are:
- Diffuse the aromatic oil into the air – You can do this by using an essential oil diffuser, an atmosphere mist to promote aromatherapy
- Light Incense Sticks – When you meditate, sit, and relax. Light incense sticks that are safe to breathe and charcoal-free.
Let us take you a little deeper … what exactly is aromatherapy?
Aromatherapy, or aromatic essential oil therapy, is used by holistic health and wellness practitioners to improve mental, physical, and emotional health. Essential oils can help regulate the right mood and bring about a sense of peace, comfort, or help with attention and focus.
Adding essential oils to a mindful breath practice can help our attention to our breath using our sense of smell and touch. Mindfulness is the practice of connecting to our breath and our bodies in the present moment, while taking a look at our ability to practice being non-judgmental in through and reaction, and to bring awareness to all of the sensations.
