Yoga and Essential Oils: A Natural Fit!

Yoga and Essential Oils:
A Natural Fit !



“Dream a little bigger, stretch a little further, breathe a little deeper, and reach a little higher,” affirm the creators of Essential Yoga, designed to bring together the two ancient healing practices of yoga and essential oils.

If you already love yoga, you’re gonna love the idea of bringing essential oils into your practice! “The use of essential oils to enhance and complement the yoga practice dates back thousands of years and originated in India with sandalwood and vetiver,” state Essential Yoga founders Deidra Schaub, Jane Bloom, Stephanie Smith and Marty Harger.

In The Essential Yoga Program, they recommend specific oils to enhance the physical and emotional aspects of a yoga practice. 

Here’s just a sample of how you can incorporate essential oils into your private yoga practice or present them in monthly themed workshops if you are a teacher:

THEME: VISION  Is your yoga practice aligned with your goals?
YOGA FOCUS:  Active flow poses with twists and inversion.
RECOMMENDED OILS:  Juniper Berry, Lemon, Roman Chamomile, Peppermint, Focus Blend, Lavender.

THEME: CONNECTION   Cultivate an Open Heart.
YOGA FOCUS:  Active hatha yoga poses with heart openers.
RECOMMENDED OILS:  Ylang Ylang, Wild Orange, Frankincense, Massage Blend, Geranium, Balance Grounding Blend.

THEME: ALIGNMENT   Balance Body, Mind and Spirit.
YOGA FOCUS:  Head to Toe Yin or Restorative.
ESSENTIAL OILS:  Cypress, Grapefruit, Frankincense, Marjoram, Deep Blue Soothing Blend, Grounding Blend.

THEME: ENERGY   Capture the rejuvenation of Spring
YOGA FOCUS:  Hatha yoga with twists and forward bends.
RECOMMENDED OILS:  Wild Orange, Lime, Cedarwood, Rosemary, Geranium, Peppermint

Other themed classes include:  Renew, Breathe, Freedom, Balance, Foundation, Release, Gratitude and Compassion.

During each class, the yoga teacher will gently rub the appropriate essential oil on the student’s forehead, back of neck, bottoms of feet, etc. while he or she is in a pose. This allows each student to be a passive receiver while enjoying the lovely fragrance and healing benefits of each essential oil. Students love these classes!

Afterwards, they are encouraged to attend an essential oil introductory class and purchase their own essential oils, if they are interested.

It’s a win-win for everybody!

If practicing yoga in the privacy of your own home, you can use an essential oil diffuser with either an energizing oil (like Wild Orange, Peppermint) or a relaxing one (such as Serenity or Balance Blends) depending on the nature of that day’s poses and goals.

Visit www.essentialyogaprogram.com  for more information on designing classes and purchasing the delightful book, The Essential Yoga Program.

The Bites and Stings of Summer: Essential Oils To The Rescue!




 THE BITES AND STINGS OF SUMMER:
Essential Oils TO THE RESCUE!

 Summertime is grand, isn’t it? Warm sun, cool evening breezes, flowers a-blooming and---skeeters a-stinging! Ouch, where did that little guy come from! Well, if you steer clear of standing water and keep those empty flower pots drained, you’ll have less chance of encountering a mosquito And use therapeutic grade essential oils for soothing any kind of... 

INSECT BITE:

Add 5 drops ROMAN CHAMOMILE ESSENTIAL OIL and 5 drops LAVENDER to a small bowl of cold water. Soak a cloth in it and then hold it against the bite for one minute.

For BEE STINGS:

Try the same recipe with LEMON, LEMONGRASS, MELALEUCA, PEPPERMINT OR LAVENDER.

TIP: If the stinger remains in the skin, try rubbing one drop of CLOVE essential oil around the area for a numbing effect.

For SPIDER BITES:

Try LAVENDER, LEMON, LEMONGRASS, MELALEUCA, PEPPERMINT OR ROMAN CHAMOMILE.

And for SNAKE BITES (and let’s hope you never have to use this):

Try MELALEUCA. While most snake bites are innocuous, it’s a good idea to head to the emergency room immediately if you don’t’ know or have any doubts whatsoever.

 Essential oils are naturals for summer stings and bites. Keep them handy in your medicine cabinet!

Email me at GreenLivingLadies@Gmail.com to learn more about these therapeutic grade essential oils. 

 HAVE A GREAT AND STING-FREE SUMMER EVERYBODY!

To your health,

Your Summer Vacation Essential Oil Travel Kit





The kids are out of school and you’re planning some fun, summer vacation travel. Yippee! But what should you put into that all-important medicinal travel kit? Well, if you already have our company's products around your house, you probably have most of the basics!

Here are some suggestions for packing an easy-to-store, convenient travel kit with all-natural remedies:

WILD ORANGE LIP BALM: Having dry, chapped lips from too much sun or wind is no fun while on vacation. Just whip out the amazing Lip Balm with essential oils of Wild Orange & Peppermint for fast relief and protection. Smells awesome too!

REPELLENT BLEND: Keep biting insects away with this 100% natural formula of select essential oils, blended in a base of pure coconut oil. Terra Shield has a fresh citrus smell that we love but insects don’t! Plants use these essential oils to protect against insects—and so can you. No more nasty synthetics or toxins, as in most commercial repellents. Terra Shield is natural and effective. 

PEPPERMINT is the go-to essential oil in any travel kit. You can use it to freshen your breath, and it will soothe tummy aches or digestive discomfort from overindulging at that fabulous new restaurant or ice cream shop. Rub in a circle on your belly and put a drop under your tongue. If you prefer, take 1-2  Peppermint Beadlets for fast relief.


LAVENDER ESSENTIAL OIL is great for any kind of burn, including the kind that comes from too much sun. Put directly on a small burn, such as from a camp stove, or blend with fractionated coconut oil and apply to larger areas of sunburn. You can also put 10-15 drops in 3 ounces of water in a spray bottle, then apply to sun-exposed skin as a soothing mist.

SOOTHING BLEND RUB can’t be beat for your aching muscles or joints after that long hike with a backpack. Massage into your feet, knees, shoulders, or calves and start to feel the comforting relief. Many of us hikers, tennis players, and baby carriers swear by Deep Blue! Also available as a soothing Essential Oil Blend.

 PROTECTING THROAT DROPS: My family never goes anywhere without these tossed into a purse or travel kit. They’ll give your body an extra immune boost to protect you from colds or flu. No one wants to get sick while on vacation! Also great for a sore throat that might come up from too much shouting at that outdoor sports event.
