Gandha is sanskrit for fragrance and the aromatic substances – seeds, woods, herbs, plants, flowers, roots, and resins. These aromatic plant medicines assist in quieting the mind for the higher purposes of yoga and meditation by pacifying the thinking front part of the brain and connecting with the limbic system- the back part of the brain.
With the exception of the sense of smell, all of our senses pass through the front brain. Scent directly accesses the primal brain – so we can quiet the mind and attune our awareness to Spirit.
