Essential Oils and the Chakras

Sometimes, our chakras can become blocked or unbalanced and that is when dis-ease can occur. There are a number of ways to help activate and balance the chakras, and one of our favorite ways is by using essential oils.

Chakras are, “energy centers within the human body that help to regulate all its processes, from organ functions to the immune system and emotions.

Seven chakras are positioned throughout your body, from the base of your spine to the crown of your head. Each chakra has its own vibrational frequency, color, and governs specific functions that help make you, well, human.”

Using essential oils to balance the chakras is an amazing way to learn about a number of different oils and their powers. It’s also a great way to understand the chakras and associate certain oils with each. When we are mindful of how our mind, body, and soul is feeling, we are able to observe where we need balance. By understanding our needs, we are able to utilize tools that help us heal.

Each of the seven chakras is associated with certain concepts. Below, you will read about the chakras and their concepts, as well as oils that help balance each. I challenge you to be mindful of these seven areas throughout the body. If you feel blocked or unbalanced in one or more areas, try one of these essential oils!
