When it comes to meditation, it doesn’t get much better than sandalwood. This ancient oil is known for its cleansing properties and can break up negative thoughts that cloud the mind. If you’re feeling overwhelmed or stressed, sandalwood can help clear up the chatter.


If you’re sick or for some other reason have a lot of obstructed breathing, eucalyptus can really help. It’s actually defined as an expectorant (something that loosens mucus), so it helps to clear the air passages, allowing you to breathe deeper and more easily in meditation.


For the spirit, frankincense is the most powerful essential oil. It brings about grounding, balance, and openness. It also helps to stabilize the root chakra. It also has numerous holistic benefits: it reduces inflammation and pain, relieves stress, and clears the nasal passage. All of this is a big distraction during meditation, so it’s great to use just before you practice.


Neroli is all about love. Used during meditation, it promotes self-love and acceptance, and inspire creativity. Interestingly enough, it also decreases blood pressure and cortisol levels and is known as an anticonvulsant. Neroli has a profound impact on meditation and can really help you find a deeper level of mindfulness and clarity.

Clary Sage

Clary sage has been known for thousands of years as a way to clear negative energy in a space. It can also help to take the mind away from distractions, as it’s been linked to antidepressant properties that lift the mood for a positive meditation experience.


If you want to soothe your nerves, lavender has you covered. It’s one of the best essential oils for meditation because it puts the mind in the right perspective. If you notice your meditations are too restless, use this oil so you can truly balance and focus.
