My Routine for Balancing Chakras with Essential Oils

I love yoga. Pre pregnancy I practiced Bikram Yoga on average 4x a week. I loved what it did for my body, flexibility and most importantly my mind. I began incorporating oils into my yoga practice- because well they were a part of my everyday routine in every other aspect of my life. I first started with applying Breathe™ to my chest to help increase my intention of deep belly breaths during my practice. I eventually began researching more into balancing my chakras for more emotional healing. This brings me to what I have found that works for me best in my daily routine.

“Never use more than three oils in your routine, because there is a lot of energy being processed in a  yoga session, and you want to prevent overload. Also, make sure that you ask about sensitivity  to essential oils before you begin. You will need to pay attention to the general feeling of the class to determine which oils to use.” -Adabelle Carson doTERRA Diamond & Yoga Expert

Essential Oil Routine

Example: Mood Balancing

Begin with Breathe™. To connect yourself more deeply to your breathing, place a drop or two in your palms and bring them in a tent to your face. Close your eyes and focus on your breathing.

Use Peppermint to get going. Place a few drops at the top of the mat and create a circle. Peppermint works a lot like a mantra; it helps you to focus and has calming properties. It also is a great reminder to breathe.

Use Balance™ right before corpse pose. Place the oil on your feet to help you relax into the pose.
