These oils are nourishing to the soul and enhance the present moment.

Mindfulness can be practiced in small things like:

  • Eating food

When we are present in the moment, we enjoy each and every second of it. Similarly, when eating our food if we are mindful, we relish every bite of it. The gratitude associated with having food on the table gives meaning to life and the soul. Essential oils like Frankincense oil can be diffused in the dining area to make the whole eating experience a calming one.

  • While sleeping

Sleep is an essential part of one’s routine. It is rightfully said that good sleep is better than a hundred medicines. Hence, diffusing your bedroom with essential oils like chamomile oil can help create a relaxing atmosphere to facilitate a peaceful sleep.

When massage is combined with aromatherapy and panchakarma, people can enjoy the benefits of better health and wellness.

Similarly, Panchkarma benefits include purifying your body and enhancing overall health and well-being. Using essential oils when massaging your body can be deeply relaxing.
