Incense sure smells nice, but it frankly gets in the way when you're trying to get your ujjayi on. Why not exchange smoke for aromatherapy? Create an inspiring atmosphere that is conducive to the flow of your breath and energy with the awakening and focusing yogi mist. Spray in the room, on yourself, or, our favorite - on your mat (thanks to the choice of essential oils, the mist sanitizes without jarring chemicals).
Frankincense and myrrh creates a warm, golden, spiritual base with a heart of herbal rosemary that opens up with uplifting citrus notes which purify the air. A soulfully balanced potion for all aspects of your practice!
What's in the bottle?

Frankincense is, traditionally, the scent of the Western sun gods, often used together with saffron, musk, and myrrh. The oil is obtained from the resin of the Boswellia trees. In the past, the resin was burnt to bless and inspire people with the scent of divinity. The power it held would cause evil forces to disperse and induce a focused state of contemplation. To this day, frankincense holds a place in skin care as a rejuvenant of skin cells, particularly for dry skin.
Botanically related to frankincense, myrrh is a resin from a tree (commiphora myrrha). Myrrh is known for being one of the three gifts that were brought to jesus by the three wise men. In biblical times, myrrh was used for many things, for example as a natural remedy, a spice, and to purify the dead. Today, we know that myrrh has antioxidant capacities and can even fight some parasitic infections. One of the active compounds in myrrh oil (sesquiterpenes) bears effects on our hypothalamus (deals with emotions, among other things), causing it to help us remain balanced and calm.
