Add to the countless benefits of meditation by combining your meditation with Aromatherapy. Let the oils assist you in connecting you to your breath, quieting your mind, and relaxing your body.
Place a few drops of essential oils in your Aromatherapy diffuser, close your eyes and take your awareness inward. Choose just one oil or create your own blend.


The warm, spicy-sweet fragranced of Frankincense has been used since ancient times to induce a deep meditative, spiritual state. It soothes the mind, and uplifts the spirit.



Just like Frankincense, the woody, sweet and earthy aromas of Sandalwood induce a deep meditative and spiritual state. It has a long tradition in India and is sacred in many traditions.



Soothing and grounding allow Vetiver to gently calm inner restlessness. The earthy aroma encourages deep relaxation.



Allow your thoughts to drift away as you inhale the the floral aroma of Lavender essential oil. Take in the harmonizing, healing, soothing, calming and relaxing properties.



Vanilla is comforting, harmonizing and calming to body, mind, spirit and emotions. Let the rich and sweet scent of this essential oil take you even deeper into your meditation.



The sweet, cheerful scent of Mandarin is calming and soothing. It help relieve stress and balances the emotions.

May Aromatherapy support and enhance your mediation practice!
