Aromatherapy for Meditation

Aromatherapy for Meditation

Sometimes it is just not easy to quiet the mind and sink into a deep meditation. To the rescue, an aromatherapy blend with essential oils. Try diffusing some of this beautiful Meditation Aromatherapy Blend on those difficult days.

The blend of seven essential oils includes frankincense and myrrh, which have been used throughout time for spiritual transcendence. Rose is known to unite physical and spiritual love, and sandalwood to instill inner quiet.

4 drops myrrh essential oil
5 drops sandalwood essential oil
10 drops frankincense essential oil
2 drops clove essential oil
2 drops cistus essential oil
5 drops clary sage essential oil
2 drops rose essential oil

Combine the oils in a small dark glass bottle and shake well.

To use: Add to a diffuser and use to support and enhance meditation.

A note about diffusers: Diffusers disperse essential oils into the environment via an air jet pump connected to a glass bell. A modern aromatic diffuser is a natural alternative to aerosol deodorizers and chemical air fresheners. A diffuser is a safe and convenient method of dispersing essential oils throughout a home, school or workplace. Note that candle burners and lightbulb rings can overheat delicate essential oils, changing their chemical makeup.

Wow- can one just choose one single essential oil, increase the concentration before putting in the diffuser? Kinda expensive to have all these oils at once. I have used bergamot, and lavender oil. I do burn oil-dipped incense. I locew sandalwood and clary sage.
