Aromatherapy and Yoga
Each of the five LIGHT EOB, Inc. essential oil blends is based upon a Kundalini Yoga Mantra or concept. Sweet kirtan fills the air as each synergy is hand blended and bottled. This week I’d like to tell you more about the Creation Blend.
The Creation Blend (Ek Ong Kar) is composed of Lavender, Rose Geranium, Palmarosa, Grapefruit and Peppermint essential oils. The carrier oil is Marula Oil, rich in anti-oxidants and easily absorbed by the skin.
Lavender Essential Oil: Most people are familiar with Lavender essential oil, as a calming, sleep-inducing oil. Lavender essential oil is probably the best known and most widely used of all essential oils. It is also anti-inflammatory, cooling, anti-microbial, immune-enhancing and hormone-balancing. In small amounts, it can safely be applied to the skin without being diluted with a carrier oil. Lavender essential oil opens all of the Chakras and balances the emotions, promoting a Heaven and Earth connection.
Rose Geranium Essential Oil: Rose Geranium essential oil shares the calming and balancing (of the emotions and hormones) properties of Lavender Essential Oil. The intoxicating scent is a natural aphrodisiac! It acts upon the Heart Center, while increasing creative expression centered in the Second Chakra. We feel supported on our spiritual journey to well-being and joy.
Grapefruit Essential Oil: It’s not surprising that Grapefruit essential oil is known for its uplifting and purifying effects. It is a mild euphoric and a detoxifier; refreshing and cleansing without being irritating. Grapefruit essential oil is a “releasing” oil, benefiting those that tend to be self-critical and ‘blaming’, harbor resentment or keep emotions bottled up inside .
Peppermint Essential Oil: This oil is a stimulator and refresher to the Mind,
a great aid in the absorption of information and new ideas. Peppermint essential oil stimulates kundalini energy and promotes clear thinking and confidence, tolerance and self-expression. It is a good balancer of the nervous system, helping us to concentrate, and taking the edge off headaches.
When placed in a blend, these oils have a synergistic effect. We are calm, balanced, clear- minded and creative. Calmly energetic!
The blend is also called Ek Ong Kar. You can anoint yourself, do direct palm inhalation or diffuse the Creation Blend during the Mul Mantra portion of your daily sadhana practice; while chanting the Magic Mantra (Ek Ong Kar Sat Gur Prasad) , the Adi Mantra or 2 ½ hours of Long Ek Ong Kars. The added benefits of the aromatic oils will enhance the benefits of your practice! Try it and let me know what you experience.
