The Story Behind Sacred Yoga Scents
Hello! I'm Sharen Turner, a fully qualified Aromatherapist and Feng Shui consultant, and the founder of Secret Scent. I started at SYAMA – Sunrise Yoga and Meditation Academy, as I wanted to further my knowledge for both my modalities Aromatherapy and Feng Shui. Learning more about chakras, yin and yang yoga terms, elements within the body to help with my Aromatic blending & Feng Shui consultations.
I wasn’t much of a yogi but more a yoga latte, after my first SYAMA experience I discovered “santosa” contentment, being at peace with what is, which immediately become something I wanted to create in my life and in my yoga practice to help others, so I designed a blend which did just that, Santosa .
I became addicted to yoga as I loved the people and the practice, as well as what it taught me spiritually and mentally. It helped me to become disciplined, for which I am very grateful.
Chakras are the energy centres in our body, energy is “vibration” (also known as "chi" in Feng Shui). Each essential oil has a chakra and colour vibration.
Essential oils are used to enhance the vibration of your intentions through physical senses of touch and smell. By adding the ritual of anointing the body with the essential oils it enhances our intentions. For example, if your intention is heart centred, you would apply the OM blend to empower your intention, the scent would be a physical reminder to help manifest your heart's desire.
The Science Behind How Aromatherapy Works
The Aroma enters your nose and travels through the cranial nerve to the olfactory bulb which is part of the limbic system “the emotional centre of the brain” which activates a positive connection "trigger response" to your intention and is activated once re applying in future a positive emotional experience into your conscious awareness by recalling the original aroma, it triggers the set intention which can impact mood and behaviour.
So yoga lovers, as you enter a calmer more relaxed and contented yoga practice by applying the essential oils it will not only raise your vibration but also initiate an associated learning experience.
