There’s nothing quite like reclining flat on your yoga mat in a darkened room at the end of a grueling and exhilarating round of yoga. That routine can require all your mental energy, strain your body, and push you well beyond your perceived limits. But it also fills you up somehow — it settles your spirit firmly back into your strained arms, tired legs, and shaky core … and keeps you coming back for more. We want to lend our support in pursuit of this amazing passion as we celebrate World Yoga Day. Part of that is offering a BOGO on our Yoga Blend!
Whether you are a beginner or already a hard-core yogi, you’re our kind of people — looking to naturally care for mind, body, and soul. We know that incorporating essential oils into your practice can deepen your experience, calm your nerves, and support your body. We’ve compiled specific products to support both your body while you stretch and refine your muscles, tendons, and joints — and for your soul, to deepen the inevitable path your spirit must negotiate as you persevere in the practice of yoga.
Below we’ve outlined more about each product to give you a feel for how it can help you to progress from the downward-dog-stage of your yoga experience to Gandha Bherundasana (Formidable Face Pose….We had to look it up too).
Yoga Essential Oil Blend is a calming combination of superior-quality essential oils crafted to melt away tension and help you to connect to and embrace your world. A delicious combination of Sweet Orange, delicate Ylang Ylang, refreshing Clary Sage and grounding Sandalwood make this blend perfect for inner peace and outer physical resiliency. Use the full-strength blend to diffuse during your workout. Add a few drops to an ultrasonic diffuser for an ambiance of warm relaxation as you ease into any pose with the help of Pido Yoga Blocks. Or use the Ready-to-Apply roll-on before your workout to focus your goals and boost your energy. Don’t forget! We still have a Buy One Get One Free!
Awaken Essential Oil Blend is a bracing blend of bright citrus and pure mint, carefully crafted to keep you on your toes and ready for action. This kit offers both the full-strength and ready-to-apply version of this effective blend, so you’ll have the flexibility to use it in the air, on your skin, and in whatever dilution works best for your body. Rely on it to be physically and mentally ready for an early-morning workout, or to easily transition into your day after an especially effective Dead Man’s Pose. Put a few drops of the full-strength oil on a cloth or even your AzureLife Stretch Straps and keep nearby for an occasional boost.
Here are a few more ideas on how to incorporate these blends into your practice.
- Set the mood by adding 5-10 drops of Awaken or Yoga essential oil blend to any diffuser.
- A great way for the whole group to receive aromatherapy benefits.
- Massage diluted oils or ready-to-apply blends into chest, shoulders, and the base of the neck.
- For a more mild experience, apply to wrists and chest.
- If the ready-to-apply blend is gone, simply add 9 drops of the undiluted blend to the bottle and fill with your choice of carrier oil.
- A way to cleanse aromatically by applying oil to the corner of your Pido Yoga Mat, around the room, or on clothing.
