What are Essential Oils? Essential oils are natural aromatic compounds forming in the seeds, bark, stems, roots, flowers and other parts of the plant. They can be both beautifully and powerfully fragrant. If you have ever enjoyed the gift of a rose, a walk by a lavendar field, or the smell of freshly cut mint, you have experienced the aromatic qualities of essential oil. Essential Oils can lift the mood, calm the senses and elicit powerful emotional responses. Yet the use of essential oils goes well beyond their fragrant appeal.
Essential Oils have been used in many cultures throughout history all over the world for their medicinal and therapeutic benefits. Modern trends toward more holistic approaches to self care and growing scientific validation of alternative health practices are driving a rediscovery of the profound health benefits of essential oils. Many have powerful cleansing properties and are natural antimicrobial. Their unique chemical structure allows them to pass directly through the skin for immediate systemic response to topical application. Certain oils may be used as dietary aids to promote vitality and well-being.

Essential Oils & Yoga
Yoga and doTERRA essential oils are powerhouses on their own. Combine the two and you’ve got an unstoppable way to transform your health and wellness
The therapeutic benefits of essential oils are an excellent addition to your yoga practice. Specific essential oils help to elevate the mood and energize the body. Other oils are great for calming the body.
Essential oils are great diffused into the air during a class, as well as applied to the feet or neck during a resting position in yoga.
I personally love to use a mixture of Lavender, Meleuca and Eucalyptus essential oil blend on my yoga mat to naturally clean the mat after a class.
There is nothing better than an essential oil to aid your yoga practice and provide peace and tranquility wherever you practice yoga. Please see our events page for more details on our MONTHLY Essential Oil Yoga Workshops.
