How To Use Essential Oils in Your Meditation Practice?

Incorporating essential oils into your meditation practice is simple and can be done in various ways. First, you can diffuse your essential oil of choice through a diffuser. It’s one of the most effective ways to enjoy the benefits of aromatherapy during meditation. Add your chosen essential oil to the diffuser, and let the aroma fill the room. If you don’t have a diffuser, or don’t want to use any special equipment, you can add a few drops of essential oil to a cotton ball or tissue and place it in your space. Breathe deeply!

You can also apply topically to the skin, although the essential oil shouldn’t be applied directly to the skin unless it is diluted. Ensure you dilute your essential oil with a carrier oil, such as coconut or safflower oil first. Then apply it to pulse points like your wrists, temples, and the back of your neck. This allows the aroma to stay with you throughout your meditation session. If you’d prefer not to dilute the oil, you can inhale it directly from the bottle.

Experiment with different oils to find the ones that resonate most with you, and discover the powerful synergy between meditation and aromatherapy. Your mind, body, and soul will thank you for it.
