Yin Fire Meditation Oil Ingredients Details
Xiang Fu — The deep, smoky, woody scent of xiang fu (Cyperus root) relaxes our diaphragm and opens our chest so we can pause and take a deep breath. The deep heavy nature of the scent draws us into our own dark inner mystery but its spiciness brings that mystery out rather than keeping it locked away. It creates a sense of deep opening around our heart and inside our body and mind as it relaxes us into the present moment.
