With the world slowly returning to normal and our schedules starting to get busier, you may be keen to find different ways to relax and optimise your spare time. Whether you are familiar with meditation or seeking new ways to clear your mind, we’ve got you covered on how to enhance your meditation practice by introducing an aromatherapy balm.
What is Meditation?
The practice of meditation is believed to have originated around 5000 BCE and is still practiced today worldwide, which comes as no surprise due to its ability to improve your happiness as well as having many health benefits. It is important to remember that the purpose of meditation is to be focusing your attention and increasing awareness of your thoughts and feelings rather than trying to alter them. Meditation is a skill that can take time, practice and consistency to master. Try adding our DE-STRESS aromatherapy balm into your routine for the ultimate meditation experience. Designed to promote relaxation, the soothing blend provides the ideal stress relief helping you to switch off from any nervousness or worry, allowing you to fully immerse yourself in your meditation practice with minimal distraction.
Why use aromatherapy in meditation?
If you are someone who often feels disconnected, incorporating aromatherapy into your meditation practice is an excellent way to maintain focus and keep you grounded. The natural plant extracts in our aromatherapy products help to promote a clearer mind and positive change in your mood. Aromatherapy is thought to be effective in encouraging feelings of positivity and eradicating negative thoughts, helping you feel calm and centred.
Applying the DE-STRESS Balm
Before your meditation practice apply the DE-STRESS balm following our Scentered ritual:
Stop - Apply a balm directly to your wrist, neck and temples.
Inhale - Raise your wrists to your nose and deeply inhale, visualising the mind state you wish to achieve in this moment.
Reset - Exhale deeply as you step into the next moment of your daily journey.
Benefits of moringa, shea butter and candelilla wax
Made from a 100% natural oil blend, the ingredients of the DE-STRESS balm are carefully selected to promote relaxation and relief from stress. With its excellent calming and energizing properties, it comes as no surprise that moringa is one of the main ingredients of the DE-STRESS balm, as it helps to calm the mind making it a great ingredient for meditation practice.
Another essential ingredient in the balm is shea butter. Not only does it offer excellent antioxidant properties, but it is also extremely soothing and may help relieve any muscle aches and pains caused by stress, helping you achieve the ideal mindset and reach optimal comfort for your meditation practice.
The main binding ingredient in the balm is candelilla wax, which is a plant-based, environmentally friendly and sustainable sourced ingredient making it an ideal product for those with sustainability in mind. Candelilla wax also benefits from soothing and moisturising properties so is an excellent ingredient in a balm, allowing for an easy and smooth application.
