I have been incorporating my Essential Oils into my Yoga and Meditation practice, and since doing so, it has turned my Yoga practice upside down. Sometimes even literally. This month, my oils propelled my practice through my increasing pregnancy exhaustion. They gave me the energy and comfort to continue pushing myself. I am not ready to hang up the Yoga mat…and I honestly hope that day never comes. I really do love my Young Living Essential Oils. I try to incorporate a different oil(s) every month into my practice.

This month, I gave the new blend “Peace & Calming II” a try. I put a drop of P&C 2 on my temples to relax me during my practice...because I am now getting to the point in my pregnancy, where I pretty much just want to relax during my Yoga practice. I put 4 drops into my diffuser to diffuse while practicing as well. It filled the air with such a relaxing and pleasing scent! It was just what I needed .


If you are familiar with the original Peace & Calming Essential Oil, but want to know the difference between the two, here’s this:

~The gentle aroma of Peace & Calming II includes Tangerine, Orange, Ylang Ylang, Patchouli, German Chamomile, Vetiver, Cistus, Bergamot, Cassia, Davana, and Young Living’s exclusive Northern Lights Black Spruce essential oils. This proprietary blend creates a relaxing and pleasant aroma when inhaled or diffused. Dilute and apply topically to moisturize and beautify the appearance of skin.* Peace & Calming II includes the naturally occurring constituents germacrene D, linalol, alpha-pinene, and bisabolol.

I am still enjoying this challenge and have no intentions of stopping anytime soon...slowing down perhaps, but not stopping. Pregnancy is NOT a sickness. It is simply a variation of normal. Rest assured though, my Midwife is 100% up-to-date on all the poses I’m doing, and has continued to give me the green light to continue my practice…with some exceptions and modifications thrown in here and there.

I hope you are all doing well, and if you are interested in joining our Yoga For Every Body group on Facebook, you can join by clicking HERE. It is for all levels…from “I have no idea what I’m doing, but I’m interested” to “I own a Yoga studio”. Head on over there and introduce yourself! We love making new Yogi and Yogini friends, supporting and helping one another and finding new inspiration!!!
