Yes, there is a precise way for using essential oils in your yoga practice to help you become more present, more empowered, feel blissful and inspired.

When you wake up some mornings, do you ever wonder, “I just woke up; why do I feel so tired?” or, “How am I going to muster the get-up-and-go I need for the day?” Let me share a few simple, yet powerful, Aroma Yoga® exercises that may help stoke your inner fire and energize your body and mind so you can start your day with an extra boost!

The essential oils I recommend for these exercises are Young Living’s Bergamot essential oil (for its uplifting and invigorating scent) mixed with Eucalyptus Radiata essential oil (for its stimulating and refreshing fragrance). Combining these essential oils with the following movements may foster that spark you need to start your day energized.

Each day that you practice, you can set a new intention or stay with one until you see it become manifest. I also suggest putting three to four drops of each essential oil used above in your diffuser to continue anchoring your olfactory experience throughout the day.
