I adore yoga and the natural, calm lifestyle it promotes. That’s why I was super excited when I found out dōTERRA, my favorite essential oils brand, released a yoga trio October, 2017. The 3 blends are called “Anchor”, “Align”, and “Arise” respectively. The goal of this blend set is to steady you, center you, and to enlighten you.

“The body achieves what the mind believes.”
Anchor– Steadying Blend
First in the oil trio is Anchor, a grounding blend. Grounding is so important in yoga, because it sets the foundation of/for your flow. dōTERRA’s listing page suggests that “the perfect yoga poses to pair with doTERRA Anchor’s aroma are Seated Meditation, Seated Twist, and Bhu Mudra (one hand on the heart, the other on the Earth). “
What’s inside? Lavender, Cedarwood, Sandalwood, Cinnamon, Frankincense, Black Pepper, and Patchouli in a base of Fractionated Coconut Oil so it’s easier on your skin.
Align– Centering Blend
Align rightfully follows Anchor, allowing you to harness aromatherapy to stack your joints, account for your energy, and lengthen your spine. The poses dōTERRA suggests to use Align with are “Warrior II, Triangle, and [the] Gate pose.” The photo above depicts Warrior II.
What’s inside? *Bergamot, Coriander, Marjoram, Peppermint, Jasmine, and Rose essential oils in a base of Fractionated Coconut Oil so the blend is easier on your skin.
- Bergamot FCF essential oil has had the Bergaptene content (Furocoumarin) removed. This minimizes the oil’s phototoxicity and makes it more suitable for use on sensitive skin.
Arise– The Enlightening Blend
Arise is the final blend in the trio, allowing you to ground, balance, and then ascend to ease your mind. The 3 suggested poses on the site are “standing arms high, standing side stretch, and Half Moon“. The photo above depicts standing arms high.
What’s inside? Grapefruit, Lemon, Osmanthus, Melissa, and Siberian Fir in a base of Fractionated Coconut Oil so it’s easier on your skin.
How to Use
Aromatic use: Apply several drops to diffusing jewelry, natural dolomite, or lava diffusing rocks.
Topical use: Apply one to two drops to desired area with skin sensitivities in mind.

all of these blends smell absolutely wonderful and took me to that happy, light yoga place. Aromatherapy is no joke, especially when they come in a pack of beautifully designed bottles, haha.
Interested? I’m a wellness advocate and wellness customer! Retail is $69.33 (Ouch), but with my dōTERRA Wellness Customer membership I get it for $52 even. That’s almost $20 off.
