The ancient practice of meditation can be incredibly beneficial for the mind, body, and soul. 

It encourages a deeper understanding of yourself, offers stress release and helps you focus on your personal growth!

There are actually MANY types of meditation that can have wonderful benefits both in the immediate moment and long term that have nothing to do with the impossible task of getting your brain to stop having thoughts and to quiet the chatter.

And, while meditation is a powerful practice on its own, working with herbs can elevate your experience by stimulating your senses, grounding your awareness, and creating a calming atmosphere.

Rose Petals

Compassionate, heart-centered and loving Rose is mood boosting and creates an atmosphere that encourages closeness with nature.

When you need a little help moving into your meditation practice, Rose petals offer a pleasant and serene aroma that is believed to induce feelings of joy, peace, and harmony. 

The familiar sweet and slightly spicy scent of roses is thought to promote relaxation, reduce anxiety, and encourage positive emotions. 


Lavender calming properties have been used for centuries. 

The fragrant scent of lavender is known to have a soothing effect on the nervous system, making it an excellent choice for stress relief and relaxation.

Lavender is gentle and relaxing and can help you focus and calm your mind in preparation for a meditative experience.


If you struggle to get your mind to relax when you meditate, chamomile may be a good partner to prep you for a relaxing meditation.

Chamomile is another herb renowned for its calming effects and for inducing a state of deep relaxation that can help alleviate stress, anxiety, and insomnia.

Tulsi (Holy Basil)

Tulsi, or Holy Basil (“the incomparable one” in Hindu) holds a sacred place in Ayurvedic medicine for its multitude of healing properties dating back 3,000 years ago to ancient India.

It also has adaptogenic properties, which means it can help your body adapt to stress and promote mental balance. 


If you’re getting a bit impatient with yourself as you try to meditate, and just can’t get centered, Hawthorn encourages self-love and self-acceptance…helping you “go easy” on yourself as you ease into meditation.

Hawthorn is known for its heart-supporting properties and is believed to open the heart chakra, fostering emotional healing, love, and forgiveness. 

Lemon Balm

Lemon Balm is a delightful herb known for its uplifting and calming properties. 

Its invigorating citrus scent can uplift your spirits and calm your mind, making it an excellent addition to any meditation practice. 

When using herbs to support meditation…

What’s special about each of these herbs is you can choose to work with them individually, together, as teas or a special blend of loose incense. 

Or all of the above!

While these herbs can greatly enhance your meditation experience, it's essential to note that they are not a requirement. 

They serve as valuable tools to support and deepen your practice. 

Remember that meditation, at its core, is about connecting with your inner self, and these herbs can aid in creating a warm environment for that sacred connection.
