I really love YOGA. I’ve been practicing yoga for 15 years, studied vinyasa, and became a teacher and then found Kundalini Yoga– which completely changed my life- it was the yoga I’d been searching for.
I meditate a lot in class, and I have my own home practice, so I have a particular spot in my apartment where I practice. Along with meditating in the same place, I like to incorporate scent into my yoga practice. The scent is powerful. Keeping the scent the same when you meditate is an excellent way to quickly get into the space to be still.
I love scenting my home with candles and incense, but meditating early in the morning or late at night I am a bit worried about leaving a candle burning. When I had pets I was even more terrified that one of them would leap into a candle and be a flaming ball of white fur. The opposite of stillness. While I still love and burn candles, this roll-on oil has pretty much solved my early AM and late-night fire OCD.
I love Palo Santo. It is earthly magic- warm, inviting, and mysterious – it is also what my favorite yoga studio burns, so it instantly puts me in a calm meditative space. This one by Aster + Bay really nails the Palo Santo without it smelling fake by incorporating white sage, frankincense, and myrrh into the mix. Pure magic.
