What Essential Oils Are Best for Yoga?

There are so many essential oil options to choose from to assist the body with natural health and wellness that at times, the choices may be overwhelming. Here I share 5 favorite essential oils for yoga that will enhance your experience and effects. 

1. Lavender Essential Oil

This essential oil is a must-have for any home due to its versatility. It is the top choice for offering a relaxation effect. Lavender essential oil is popular in making people feel calm and stress-free.

Many yoga classes incorporate lavender oil during Shavasana to calm the students after practicing. It can be used with a diffuser or applied topically to the hands, shoulders, and neck. It is best to dilute before applying to the skin.

2. Sandalwood Essential Oil

Another essential oil that can promote relaxation is sandalwood. But, it’s often used to help people concentrate. Using this at the start of a yoga session would make it easier to bring consciousness into the moment. This is useful especially for people who have a lot of worries and distractions.

This is a great choice for men who practice yoga. It doesn’t have a dominant floral scent that some men don’t prefer. Instead, it gives an earthy scent with a hint of sweetness.

3. Peppermint Essential Oil

Yoga requires focus and breathing is a big part of it. If someone has respiratory problems, it would be impossible to get the best out of yoga.

Fortunately, peppermint oil can be used to help improve breathing and other respiratory problems. It’s because peppermint oil has natural anti-inflammatory properties. Incorporating this oil during or after yoga can likewise support muscle recovery after a session.

4. Clary Sage Essential Oil

Clary sage can improve mood and emotional wellness. Like most essential oils, it can relieve stress. But, one of the best uses for it is to uplift someone’s spirits. 

This floral oil is known to improve a person’s emotions during challenging situations. It may also help in increasing energy levels. For people who do yoga to kickstart their day, try adding clary sage oil into the mix.
