Many yoga practitioners are also wholesale yoga supplies and one of their many products are essential oils for yoga and meditation
The use of essential oils in yoga as a healing tool is considered an entirely new branch of natural medicine. This is because essential oils offer the yoga practitioner an incredible diversity of both practical and esoteric health effects.
Essential oils can be used for healing injuries to muscles, tendons and ligaments. We have also investigated the use of essential oils for immune support, as well as detoxification.
Attending yoga classes regularly during the Winter is so beneficial. However, we are more likely to find ourselves next to someone with a cold. Those with a family will probably have children coming home with the latest thing that’s going around. And as travelling to retreats and workshops becomes more popular, they are bound to need a little immune boost from the stress of travelling.
Using a diffuser with doTERRA essential oils for yoga
To get the best out of your yoga session it is highly recommended to use doTERRA essential oils for yoga. doTERRA offers the world’s best, high quality and its aromatic powers.
One method of using doTERRA oils for cold and flu prevention is by inhaling essential oils or applying topically during the session. The most effective method is to have a diffuser running when you start the class to enhance antimicrobial, immune-support.
Run the diffuser on a timer (5-10 minutes every hour) or continuously on its lowest setting, all the hours you and your clients are in the yoga class.
Inhalation essential oils such as eucalyptus have been scientifically validated to support the immune system. The vapour from essential oils have been proven to eradicate microbes both in the air and on surface area.
Applying doTERRA essential oils for yoga topically
Sometimes it is not practical to use a diffuser so it is possible to apply the oils topically. This can be as simple as applying a couple drops on each wrist Then rubbing them together, then on your neck and chest. Do this a few times during the yoga class.
Essential oils are rapidly absorbed through the skin and will be distributed throughout your bloodstream in this way.
Please note: While many people have no problems with using a few drops of undiluted essential oils, some with more sensitive skin will. In these cases you need to dilute with a carrier oil such as coconut oil.
Out of the many doTERRA essential oils for yoga in use today research and wisdom points to a particular few:
- Eucalyptus essential oil
- Lavender essential oil
- Melissa essential oil
- Lemon essential oil
- Frankincense essential oil
- Aromatouch blend oil
Combining these oils can produce a potent, wonderful smelling synergy of protection from infectious illness. You can use equal parts of all if you like. However, if you find that Melissa is not cost-effective, simply use about 1/10th as much. Even a few drops of oil can help boost the immune system efficacy.
For additional support in doTERRA essential oils for yoga
During your yoga session consider using a little lemon essential oil in your water. Lemon has excellent purifying properties, both for the water and on our bodies. Add 5 or so drops of oil to each large glass of water and drink throughout the class. This can synergies with the other immune supportive practices for a greater overall protection from infectious illness.
Starting a wholesale yoga supplies business also includes essential oils
A big issue during my discussions with many yoga teachers is the low wages and incomes. There doesn’t seem to be enough hours in the day or enough customers willing to pay enough for a comfortable living.
So what is the key to running a successful yoga business?
This means adding value to your already existing business. If you are using essential oil during your classes then sell essential oils after your classes. There is no doubt that if one or more of your clients feel their lives have been enhanced from this service they will tell others. This is because you have offered them a new essential oils experience and one that has made their live better than it was yesterday.
The reality is that running a yoga class needs more than one income stream. This means that creating an additional stream with wholesale yoga supplies at it center as a doTERRA distributor could be the options.
Once you have started using essential oils in your yoga classes clients will want to know where they can get them from. This means offering quality and professional help about the best practices when using essential oils.
There is a lot of information available for those yoga teachers who are looking to diversify into aroma yoga. So consider sharing essential oils with your next class.
Sharing such a great service with your customers that only has a positive outcome in regards to health and wellness. It is also a wonderful way of connecting with others on an emotional level.
