Using Essential Oils With Your Mala
Our volcanic mala are the perfect way to wear your essential oil blends. The body naturally heats the mala and diffuses the oil. Wondering what Essentials Oils are and what they can do for you? It is pretty amazing. Here is the break down from Ronni Pitiger, a Certified Holistic Health Coach, Lifestyle Consultant.
Here are 3 Ways to Use Essential Oils:
- Essential Oils can be diffused directly into the air by using a cold water diffuser. Not only do you get the medicinal benefits, they add moisture to your dry living space.
- Essential Oils can be applied topically, or used “neat” directly onto the skin. One or two drops of these powerful oils on the soles of your feet is all you need.
- Essential Oils can be consumed internally. A drop of lemon in your water is a great way to stay hydrated and boost your immune system.
Some of the health benefits of aromatherapy include its ability to reduce anxiety, ease depression, boost energy levels, speed up the healing process, eliminate headaches, boost cognitive performance, induce sleep, strengthen the immune system, reduce pain, improve digestion, and increase circulation. www.organicfacts.com
To use essential oils with your Seeds of Change Mala simply put a few drops directly onto the volcanic stone beads.
Our favorite place to put the oil is on the back of the necklace where it directly touches your neck. The oil will soak right into the stone. It will not stain clothing or leave residue on your skin. *We do recommend testing your individual oil blends to make sure that they will not stain or damage fabrics. The mala strongly carries the scent for a few days. The essence lasts up to a week. Change essential oil blends any time, using different oils on the same mala.
We have incorporated anointing our mala with essential oils before we begin a meditation as part of our morning practice. The scent triggers our senses deepening our meditation sending us directly to a sacred space. Wearing the mala throughout the day with the scent reminds us of our dedication to our practice. A calming reminder we are supported and surrounded by the divine.
