COBRA pose -Bhujanjasank is renowned for its opening of the heart chakra, Anahata. So this month we are featuring the OM Blend as part of our Yoga Scents to be used in conjunction with your yoga practice.
Essential oils are used to enhance the vibration of intention, creating sankalpa, and OM is the mantra or vibration traditionally chanted at the beginning or end of a yoga session.
The OM Blend contains essential oils of Rose & Bergamot which are used to soften the armour around the heart, opening heart felt desires, vibrating love and compassion.
Cleopatra used to bathe in Rose oil and petals, which is why it is known as the “Queen of essential oils.” There is no better oil than Rose to connect with the heart. Rose brings comfort and warmth to those who have grown emotionally cold, healing emotional wounds. Rose oil comes from the steam distillation of the whole flowers, needing 4000kgs of flowers to make 1kg of pure Rose oil, hence the oil being one of the most expensive essential oils.
Bergamot oil used to cheer your heart and soul, releasing blocked emotions. It helps spark that enthusiasm for life again, assists in feeling refreshed and uplifted, regulating emotional turmoil. Bergamot oil is also used in Earl Grey tea produced by cold pressing the rind of the Bergamot citrus plant.
To use, place the OM oil on your heart space and allow your heart to open allowing you to embody the pose of the cobra, shoulders back opening through the chest and opening up your heart, visualising a green light in the centre of chest, allowing it to shine.
