Essential Oils are a great tool to help with physical ailments and spiritual growth.
These oils have been around for centuries and are making a comeback into our modern day lives. Use these oils in addition to yoga and meditation to help bring balance to your chakra system. Emotional Balance with Essential Oils has become a passion for me and I have seen the huge benefits for my clients. Read about it HERE.
The essential oils can be mixed with coconut or olive oil, and applied topically by rubbing on the feet or corresponding chakra area. Alternatively, try an aromatherapy approach by using a diffuser, or or diluting in tea or water. You can also ingest these oils in capsule form.
Many essential oils are reputed to help balance the chakras, some of which are shown below. When creating a blend, this should, of course, meet the person’s needs, provide a pleasant aroma but not produce sensitivity or be contra-indicated for their use. Essential oils are separated into three classes: top notes, middle notes and base notes. While there are many ways to blend aromatherapy oils, a simple way to achieve a synergistic, balanced blend is to use a top, middle and base note in the ratio 4 drops: 8 drops: 2 drops. It is worthwhile noting, however, that this is not always possible, for example, there are no top note essential oils for the root chakra. This is probably because the oils that resonate most with this chakra are grounding rather than uplifting and so will be mainly base and middle notes. In such situations, it is acceptable to use more drops of the middle or base notes. Essential oils should never be used neat, but added in the correct proportion to a suitable carrier oil (or an alternative base such as a cream or lotion). I recommend halving the number of drops of oil to the number of mls of carrier oil, so, if using 14 drops of essential oil, use 28ml of carrier oil / base.
1. Root Chakra (Muladhara)
Located at the base of spine in tailbone area, this is where our sense of security lies.
Use patchouli for an enhanced sense of grounding and stability.
2. Sacral Chakra (Svadhistana)
The lower abdomen, about 2 inches below the navel and 2 inches in — our creativity and sexuality.
Ylang Ylang and sandalwood both act as an aphrodisiac to aid in our sexual and reproductive energies.
3. Solar Plexus Chakra (Manipura)
The upper abdomen, in the stomach area — our self-esteem and confidence.
Use cinnamon to help heat up this power center, or peppermint to cool any excess fire in the system.
4. Heart Chakra (Anahata)
Located in the center of chest just above heart.
The scent of rose is related to our heart, and enhances romance and love. It is also helpful for alleviating depression and insomnia.
5. Throat Chakra (Vishudha)
Located in the throat — the center for self-expression.
Use eucalyptus to help clear sinuses and cure a sore throat or coughing, allowing this passageway to become free and clear for self-expression.
6. Third Eye Chakra (Ajna)
At the forehead and in between the eyes is the gateway to our intuition.
Lavender oil is incredibly calming and great for headaches; a common occurrence whenever your third eye is blocked. We can calm the active mind with lavender to reach a higher state of consciousness.
7. Crown Chakra (Sahasrara)
The very top of the head is our universal connection to beauty and spirituality.
Frankincense is one of the most spiritually-charged oils. It has been around for thousands of years, and brings us mental peace and clarity.
