Take a Closer Look

Let's take a deeper dive into this blend and its single oils

Fractionated Coconut Oil

Unlike regular coconut oil, Fractionated Coconut Oil has had its long-chain triglycerides removed, making it a lighter and more stable oil. This leaves primarily the medium-chain triglycerides, which gives it a longer shelf life and enhanced absorption properties.

Contribution to the Blend: Acts as a carrier oil, ensuring that the essential oils in the blend are diluted properly for topical application. It helps in the even distribution of the oils and reduces potential skin sensitivity.



Extracted from the rind of the bergamot fruit, this oil carries a fresh and citrusy aroma.

Contribution to the Blend: Its uplifting and calming qualities make it ideal for achieving balance during yoga. Bergamot can promote feelings of joy, thereby enhancing focus and clarity.


Derived from the coriander seed, this oil has a warm, spicy, and slightly sweet aroma.

Contribution to the Blend: Recognized for its grounding properties, coriander can offer emotional release, allowing for a deeper yoga experience.


This oil carries a warm, woody, and herbaceous scent.

Contribution to the Blend: Its stimulating properties can heighten focus and awareness, essential for maintaining alignment and posture during yoga.


Description: Geranium oil offers a sweet and floral aroma, reminiscent of roses.

Contribution to the Blend: Often used for its emotionally uplifting properties, geranium can promote a sense of stability and comfort, facilitating a more grounded yoga practice.


Basil oil boasts a warm and spicy, yet herbal aroma.

Contribution to the Blend: With its ability to reduce feelings of tension, basil brings a sense of peace and relaxation, perfect for unwinding into yoga poses.


One of the most prized essential oils, rose has a deeply floral and romantic scent.

Contribution to the Blend: Celebrated for its harmonizing and balancing properties, rose adds depth to the blend, allowing users to connect with their emotions during yoga.

Why Essential Oils Impact Emotions Profoundly

The profound effects of essential oils on emotions can be traced back to the intricate workings of our brain, particularly the limbic system. Here's how:

  1. Limbic System Connection: The limbic system, which includes structures like the amygdala and the hippocampus, plays a crucial role in our emotional responses, memory, and motivation. When we inhale the aroma of an essential oil, the scent molecules travel up the nose and interact with olfactory receptors. These receptors send signals directly to the limbic system.

  2. Immediate Response: Given the direct pathway to the limbic system, the effects of essential oils on our emotions can be almost immediate. For instance, calming scents might quickly ease anxious feelings, while invigorating ones can provide an almost instant uplift in mood.

  3. Memory and Association: The hippocampus's role in memory means that certain aromas can evoke powerful emotional memories. A scent can take us back to a cherished memory, infusing us with the associated emotions.

  4. Hormonal Impact: The limbic system also influences the hypothalamus, which can trigger the release of hormones. Certain essential oils can, therefore, indirectly impact the release of hormones like serotonin or cortisol, further influencing our emotional state.

  5. Holistic Experience: Essential oils provide a holistic experience, harmonizing both physiological responses and psychological perceptions. Their multi-dimensional impact makes them a potent tool for emotional and spiritual wellness.


The inherent properties of individual essential oils, coupled with our personal memories and experiences, make each person's experience with an oil unique. As such, essential oils can be powerful tools in emotional wellness, aiding in relaxation, mood regulation, and overall emotional well-being.
