At Nature’s Oil we are constantly exploring the special ability aroma gives us to transport in mind. Certain scents can immediately whisk you away to another time or place and others can help ground you and create a sense of calm and relaxation. This aromatherapy experience which is scientific in nature, connects our sense of smell to the emotional center of our brain creating a response linked to emotion and mood.
One way to heighten your aromatherapy experience is pairing your olfactory response with a concentrated meditation. Like aromatherapy, meditation is a way to promote the health of your mind, body, and spirit. There are many different ways to meditate and you have probably done it before without even noticing how you’ve worked to re-focus or center your mind and thoughts. The key to any form of this practice is bringing your mind back to the focus of your meditation even though it will want to jump from thought to thought. Although there is no perfect form and it definitely takes practice, here are some popular types of meditation to consider:
In each form of meditation a concentration is created that can bolster wellbeing. When these practices are paired with a hint of Nature’s Oil, your focus, calm, and balance can be enhanced as well. Just as you would select a certain intention or purpose for your meditative form, try selecting a certain Nature’s Oil aroma to pair with practice. You can diffuse during a seated meditation, or create a roller ball blend to wear during yoga or mindful journey through your day. Shift your mindset and empower your peace with meditation and Nature’s Oil.
