What are Essential Oils?
Essential Oils are extracted from some flowers, leaves, roots, trees, grasses, and fruits. Because they are extracts, they are highly concentrated. They can be used for flavor in foods and drinks, used for aromatherapy, and can be used in wellness practices.
How do I use them in class?
I typically add them to my diffuser and allow the scent to waft through the studio space. This enables my students to have a welcoming feeling as well as marking that they are entering a space where they can drop their life at the door for the next hour. Depending on the day, I may use scents to allow people to find a meditative state, a scent to calm the senses, a scent to invigorate, or a scent to ease discomfort. I tie them in with the intention I am setting for class.
