Aromatherapy Meditation

Oxford Botanic Garden | Wellbeing | £20

An hour and a half of meditation and discovery in the Garden, using the power of plants and their essential oils to enhance your experience and connect more deeply with nature. The plants themselves will be celebrated, with some discussion of their known effect on mind and body. We will move gently through the mood spectrum: citrus for invigoration, rose and geranium for self-love and nurture, finishing with lavender for relaxation; meditating on each in turn. Essential oils will play a part through self-anointing (applying on pulse points) and diffusion.

Please bring a firm cushion/yoga block and a blanket, and a bottle of water.

 

Please advise in advance of any allergies. Citrus oils in particular can be photo-sensitive. Application of (diluted) oils to the skin is optional. 

For meditation: although it is a generally safe and enjoyable practice, we ask that you check with your GP concerning any mental health conditions before booking.
