If you’re not sure where to begin with using lavender essential oil, just use it in your yoga practice. I for one am a huge yoga lover, and that’s why I will tend to use lavender essential oil to enhance my practice. People always ask where they need to place the drops if they are using essential oils within their yoga session, but that’s what is so great about oil diffusers. They help you to nourish your senses and really get into the experience without having to worry about stains and drops on your mat. A diffuser is out of the way and can be turned off when you feel like there’s enough scent in the room. The crazy thing about essential oils is that you can really feel it building up in the room and feel the effects that they have on your mental health.
I myself know that when I use lavender essential oil I feel instantly more relaxed. Maybe that’s because of my associations with the oil but either way it works. And if it works, it works – you can’t argue with the facts. There are many people who are skeptical about the benefits of this oil but the truth is that there are many oils besides lavender essential oil that you can use in your practice if this one doesn’t speak to you.
I like to think that everyone would love some eucalyptus essential oil in their yoga practice because this is the oil that is used in many perfumes. If you don’t like it or you don’t want to get into a relaxed state through your yoga practice and are looking for something a little more invigorating why not try a minty essential oil in your diffuser or something citrusy like lemon essential oil.
Let me tell you a little more about my yoga practices before I return to lavender essential oil. I try to make time for practice at least once a day, and if that doesn’t happen then I can really tell the difference in my flexibility. People think that yoga needs to be this drawn-out process, but even just ten minutes of daily stretching can help you to see quick progress. The important thing with exercise is to do it consistently in order to see improvements. When you stretch daily, in just one week you should be able to see visible improvements in the depth of your stretch. The good thing is that the more relaxed you are the deeper you are able to stretch. Lavender essential oil helps you to relax, which means that diffusing it in your practice can genuinely improve your movement. When I use lavender essential oil while I do yoga, not only do I feel more relaxed, but I’m able to get deeper into my stretch and achieve more in each practice. That could just be my own personal experience, but you’ll have to try it for yourself to see if it works for you.
