Have you heard the news? Chasing Nirvana Yoga is adding an essential oils expert to our yoga teacher lineup, and we couldn’t be more excited to welcome Crystal Carden to the team!
Crystal, a Massachusetts native, dove headfirst into her yoga practice and essential oil studies about a year ago. Her journey began when her family started a keto diet variation that helped her lose over 60 pounds. She was inspired to continue finding new ways to be the happiest and healthiest version of herself. After trying just one yoga class, she was hooked!
Crystal started her teacher training around the same time she began learning about essential oils as natural solutions for health issues and substitutes for chemical-laden products. Once her family was paying more attention to the food they put in their bodies, she wanted to take the effort one step further and cut out unnecessary chemicals. Crystal was able to replace a lot of her family’s everyday items and medications with essential oil rollers. From headaches and muscle pains to anxiety and fatigue, the ailments that can be treated by essential oils are endless.
“When you find something you love, you want to share with people. I believe in this too much to fail. And I give the oils to my kids, so you know I truly believe in them.”
Because essential oils only take about 20 seconds to enter the bloodstream, they’re perfect for fast relief and benefits. She says anything you would ingest as a plant can be ingested as an oil. Plus, her oils are certified as non-GMO, so you can trust that none of the crops were treated with chemicals when they were being grown.
Something Crystal loves about her work with essential oils is tailoring the concoctions to individual people; it makes her feel like a Harry Potter of holistic wellness. For example, she recently created an essential oil solution for a woman who wanted relief from asthma and allergies. Even her husband, who was skeptical of Crystal’s oil voodoo at first, finds himself asking for the “magic potion” for his neck. Meanwhile, citrus blends work nicely for her 12-year-old son, Brennan, who tells me that lime is his absolute favorite oil.
“When you start to see what you do benefit other people, that’s the cool piece. You become an inspiring person for people, who then want to make healthy changes for themselves. That’s the neatest part for me.”
