Chakras are spiraling energy centers that regulate the flow of information through our physical, emotional, mental and spiritual bodies. Each chakra governs a set of aspects relating to our perception of reality. Balancing chakras with essential oils is about getting the right combination of essential oils to encourage the particular chakra into balance.
There are 7 main chakras, and if any of them is imbalanced, it can cause physical, emotional, mental and spiritual issues of the type specific to each chakra.
A few years ago I spontaneously received a download of essential oil combinations for each of the 7 main chakras, and many people have experienced the benefits, myself included. They have since been added to our product line of essential oils for balancing the chakras.
Which properties and issues relate to each chakra? I’ve written up a guide for each chakra under each of our product descriptions. Here’s a brief summary, along with a link to the full product description and related chakra information:
1st (root) chakra. Located at the base of the spinal cord, the root chakra relates to feelings of protection, security, self-confidence, abundance, stability, and primal procreative urges.
2nd (sacral) chakra. Located in the lower abdomen, about an inch above the navel, the sacral chakra governs issues regarding interpersonal relationships involving passion, sexuality, and creativity.
3rd (solar plexus) chakra. Located in the area of the solar plexus, which sits between the navel and digestive system, the solar plexus chakra regulates the feelings of self esteem, self respect, self discipline, ambition, and courage.
4th (heart) chakra. Located in our heart center (which is in the center of the chest and just between the shoulder blades, slightly above our physical heart), the heart chakra governs our ability to unconditionally love.
5th (throat) chakra. Located in the back of the throat, the throat chakra syncs the powers of our heart, our personal domain, and our mind, our physical domain.
6th (3rd eye) chakra. Located in the center of the forehead, the 3rd eye chakra involves intuition, clairvoyance, imagination, mental abilities, reasoning abilities, and wisdom.
7th (crown) chakra. Located at the top of the head ,the crown chakra is the main hub of spirituality and how we connect with the Divine.
As I mentioned, trouble starts when your charkas are not balanced — when they are spiraling too quickly or too slowly. There are many different ways to balance the chakras, including energy work, meditation, prayer, and yoga. Diffusing essential oils is another wonderful approach to balancing chakras, and can even be used as a complement to other modalities such as meditation.
