Stop & Smell the Roses: Refresh Your Skin & Soul During National Meditation Month

Photo by Tevaprapas Makklay

Say it low and slow..."Ommm." Feel the healing vibrational energy?

The sacred seismic chant of om helps you gently reverberate your way into a soulful meditative state. This single-syllable mantra comes in handy this month as May marks National Meditation Month. The celebration encourages us to still our busy lives through relaxation, which helps restore a sense of inner peace and balance--and ultimately improves our overall health.
