Use it when… you want to create a state of focus in the body, or when you’re needing a nudge to rise up—whether it’s first thing in the morning or when discouragement and opposition are hampering your capacities. “I love Arise prior to morning meditation,” says Brower. “I put a drop on the center of my forehead and a drop on my upper lip, just under my nose. It’s uplifting, and makes me really happy.”
Practice with purpose: This scent can also be particularly helpful when you’re practicing poses you find challenging, to feel a sense of acceptance and enlightenment in the moment.
Repeat this mantra: “I am awake and alive.”
