Lavender Essential Oil
Lavender essential oil is a favorite at our studio. We mix a few drops in some water & use as a calming spray that helps deepen sivasana. Lavender has some hormone-like effects, but with few bad side effects. It may improve the quality of life for cancer patients by relieving their stress & anxiety. Lavender has been proven to enhance relaxation, relieve anxiety and help with depression. The scent of it has even been proven to enhance sleep.
I like lavender essential oil, especially during these cold winter months. It helps my mood, and calms my monkey-mind.
