I am already a HUGE fan of Essential Oils and diffusing them in my house and was SO excited to learn about GuruNanda Essential Oils and diffuser. And at the price range of it makes it very affordable. I received two 10ml bottles of Essential Oils...one lavender and one peppermint. Lavender is my favorite and I love to diffuse this in the evening to help us wind down and relax. It is such a soothing scent. I have really enjoyed using the diffuser from GuruNanda with the lavender oil. The diffuser is so awesome. It features a 3 color changing LED light that really is nice when using in a dimly lit room. I have it in my bedroom and have really enjoyed laying in the bed and being able to see it. Very relaxing. I also like to rub a little on my chest and feet right before bed. I think that it helps me fall asleep. I haven't used Peppermint much in the past, but I had developed a cough the past couple of days and looked up a good oil to use to help calm it. I kept seeing Peppermint pop up on many different sites. I decided to use the Peppermint to see if it would help my cough. I had some 3ml roller balls so I did 4 drops of Peppermint topped with Avocado Oil as the carrier oil. I rubbed my new roller ball on my neck a couple of times a day and I really think it helped to soothe my cough. It was a nice smell and I think it helped clear up my stuffy nose also. So, this is a roller ball that I now carry in my purse to have at all times!! Essential Oils and diffusers are kind of pricey but GuruNanda offers an affordable aromatherapy starter kit that makes a great holiday gift for anyone on your list. It comes in a nice package that is ready to be gift wrapped. You can find this gift set at your local Walmart with a MSRP of $19.95.

Some information on GuruNanda....
GuruNanda, also known as Puneet Nanda, is a successful entrepreneur-turned-yogi. His business accomplishments, including the successful oral care brand, Dr. Fresh, earned him 2011’s Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of the Year Award and an active position with the Young Presidents Organization (YPO). However, 16-hour workdays filled with stress, poor eating habits and lack of exercise took a dire toll on his life and his health. After an emergency trip to the hospital with chest pains during what turned out to be a severe anxiety attack, he rediscovered the yoga he loved as a child growing up in India.
His transformation included a 40-pound weight loss, which helped significantly lower his cholesterol and optimize his blood pressure. His commitment to yoga, yogic breathing, meditation and an Ayurvedic diet has helped him combat a host of prior health issues, such as back pain, insomnia, depression and sleep apnea, virtually without medications. GuruNanda’s self-realization has been so profound that he sold his former business and is now committed to sharing his journey with everyone. First, as a full-time yoga student, he expanded his knowledge through reading, attending seminars and traveling to ashrams around the world in order to deepen his practice and meditation. He used his passion for medical studies to research the science behind each yoga pose and how the moves benefit the human body. After studying with many yogis around the globe, he became an accredited yoga instructor officially affiliated with the Yoga Alliance.
GuruNanda’s hard-won philosophy is all about enjoying life without judgment or expectation. He is a huge proponent of ancient India’s laughter yoga, which has been proven to possess a variety of total body-mind-spirit benefits. His simple yogic approach to life serves to foster greater happiness, well-being and peace of mind. He and his company strive to develop resources and products based on this positive and holistic foundation.
Inspired by his personal transformative experience, GuruNanda has developed GuruNanda’s Happy Breath Yoga, a unique form of yoga and yogic breathing that can be easily incorporated into today’s extremely busy lives.
His new book, GuruNanda’s Happy Breath Yoga: Wall Street Yoga, the first in the GuruNanda’s Happy Breath Yoga series, presents the most efficient 14-minute combination yoga, yogic breathing and meditation routines for everything from insomnia to back pain to road rage. He believes that so many people are Type A “Wall Street personalities" like himself, even if they don't work in finance. Multi-tasking stay-at-home moms, students who are studying hard while working to pay off loans, and freelance creatives meeting rapid fire deadlines are all prone to the physical and psychological fallout of a harried and high-pressure world. The efficient and effective routines, advice and tips in this book are designed to turn distress into de-stress.
Often times we think that living a healthy lifestyle means leaving behind all of the things that make us feel comfortable. Our favourite foods, our usual routines, even our most beloved recreational activities start to feel threatened by the decision to become “healthy”. But the truth is that the decision to live a healthier lifestyle doesn’t have to bring us so much anxiety. There are tons of small steps we can take today to move us closer to the holistic way of life we may be admiring from a far.
Anything is difficult if we try to tackle it all at once. That’s why so many people give up on achieving a healthier lifestyle. Crash diets, for example, may help you lose weight quickly, but they are never sustainable. We at GuruNanda are here to help you to approach a healthy, more natural lifestyle one step at a time!
Approaching The Natural One Step At A Time
One way to approach the natural is to replace something you do anyway, with a healthier version of that same thing. Many of us don’t realize all of the little things we have right in our home that could be causing us harm. Take air fresheners for example. What could be the harm in filling your space with your favourite aroma? But when is the last time we actually looked at the sprays and fragrances we pump into our homes? Many are packed with chemicals…chemicals that we ingest every second that we are relaxing inside of our homes without even realizing. Instead of eliminating air fresheners altogether, you can try replacing them with a more natural version, like a ultrasonic air diffuser.
GuruNanda is committed to providing people with simple, convenient, safe and resoundingly rewarding resources and products.
Move. Laugh. Breathe. That’s the GuruNanda key to life.
