Yogic tip for today

Frankincense oil is now found even shops like FabIndia. The other day I picked up a kerchief roll -- but it had a deep sweet smell, a bit off frankincense. If u are serious about using it for meditation and tweaking your higher chakras (crown center oil:) then buy the essential oil. Sandalwood, frankincense, ylang ylang and myrrh all have a hypnogogic effect which induces a trance like state... In aroma pots. Or, incense is also a great way to invite these exotic fragrances into your practice. Though Sivananda style itself is rather austere, I remember reading the Sadguru often suggesting that you sit for your meditation after lighting up some incense:)
