Essential oils are so much more than a pretty scent! The aromas of the various essential oils are therapeutically powerful and when applied to the skin or inhaled, their chemistry can create a beneficial impact on the limbic system. The limbic lobe in the brain is capable of directly activating the hypothalamus – often referred to as the “master gland” – which acts as the hormonal control center affecting everything from sex drive to energy levels. By combining the use of EO’s with a yoga practice in this workshop, we activate and utilize the limbic system when we create a “scent memory”. This helps you later to connect to your breath and recall the moment of presence you experienced on your mat when you use those same oils outside of the class.
