Have you been curious about aromatherapy and have wanted to include essential oils in your practice or yoga or meditation? If so, this episode is for you.

For today’s episode, I sat down with Laura Colucci. Laura is a trained yoga teacher and owns a yoga studio in West Sussex where the Spritz Wellness brand was born. Spritz Wellness was one of our sponsors for our 100th episode giveaway. Laura splits her time between London and her beach house and the inspiration for the Spritz Wellness products comes from a combination of yoga, nature, and the sea. She uses aromatherapy as one way to be grounded and find calm in a very busy world.

1- Some scents ground you, others revitalize you, they reactivate memories and experiences in your body, and bring emotions back up to the surface.

3- The more you use them, the more your brain recognizes the smell as a cue to trigger a physical response.
