Oils for Yogis

Hey everyone! As someone with a passion for oils, I couldn't help but look into how I could enhance my yogi experience with oils! After some research and experimenting, here are my top 5 favorite oils and combinations to enhance your yogi experience!

Lavender is an extremely relaxing, grounding scent that will create a peaceful, serene environment. A peaceful environment is key to help you focus on the present instead of dwelling on what was and what is to be.

Peppermint is a clean, refreshing scent. Diffuse 3 drops of Peppermint and 3 drops of Lavender to promote awareness of the breath and movement of the body. Promoting awareness will allow you to not only discover a sense of unity within the body, but it will allow for the discovery of comfort within your yogi experience.

Frankincense will promote spirituality, positive thinking, balance, and inner strength. These are the most important benefits of the yogi experience. Direct inhalation prior to your grounding will ensure that you get the best experience.

R.C. is a very beneficial oil when focusing on opening up the chest and getting in touch with the spirit. Applying R.C. to the chest and feet will allow for a deeper sense of grounding and it will promote an openness within the body to enhance movement and strength. Combining R.C. and a carrier oil will create a soothing massage oil for relaxing the muscles after your yogi experience.

Thieves is an oil that promotes clarity and cleanliness. Cleaning your yoga mat, carpet, blanket, and/or floor is something that is often looked past. Keeping our area clean and fresh is essential maintaining a healthy, balanced, and productive yogi environment. Mix 2-3 drops of Thieves into a cup of distilled water. Put this mixture into a spray bottle and spray it onto your yoga accessories that you have used. Follow the spray with a dry cloth and store these in a well ventilated area to deter the growth of bacteria.

BTW! You can use these for regular workouts, relaxing, massages, and cleaning! That's the beauty of using oils – they are SO versatile! Let me know what you guys think in the comments below!

Cooking Chicken with Essential Oils

Hey, guys!

I’ve been experimenting with different Vitality Oils in my cooking for the past few days and I’m pretty sure that you will drool over this chicken! I am nowhere near a chef-level cook, but I felt like it after serving this to the boys. Do you know what is even better? It is healthy! Below you can find what I did, but feel free to tweak it to your liking!

  • 1 Tbs Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 3 Chicken Breasts
  • 1 Pinch Salt
  • 1 Pinch Pepper
  • 1 Tbs Oregano
  • 1 Tbs Meijer Chicken Seasoning
  • 3 Drops Lemon Essential Oil (Vitality)
  • 1 Cast Iron Pan
  • 1 Ground Garlic Clove
  • 1 Meat Thermometer

  1. Base the pan with extra virgin olive oil and put it over medium heat.
  2. Combine the seasonings in a small glass bowl and mix until blended well.
  3. Rub this blend onto both sides of each chicken breast.
  4. Place each chicken breast in the pan and after approximately 15 minutes, flip each breast over.
  5. When each breast is at about 140 degrees, add one drop of Lemon Essential Oil to each breast and spread the ground garlic clove on the base of the pan with the Extra Virgin Olive Oil.
  6. When each breast is about 165 degrees (generally takes about 5 minutes in a covered pan), remove the pan from the heat, cool as desired, and serve!
