How to Balance Chakras with Essential Oils
Thought to have originated in India between 1500 and 500 BC, the chakra system is a collection of seven wheels or spheres found within the body. Each chakra corresponds with a specific organ and the spiritual states surrounding our physical, emotional and psychological well-being.
In order for our bodies to function optimally, our seven chakras need to be perfectly balanced, allowing our energy to flow smoothly throughout our bodies. If one chakra is out of line, our entire body feels it. Essential oils are a great way to treat an unbalanced chakra and promote love, protection, purification, clarity, prosperity and peace. Specific essential oils work well to promote balance in different chakras. This article is going to discuss the best essential oils to use to balance each of your chakras.
Frankincense | Cedarwood
Frankincense provides the perfect balance to help restore balance to the crown chakra. It helps fight against illness, stress and emotional conflict, and provides inspirational vibes.
Cedarwood battles negativity and promotes meditation and stillness within the mind, body and spirit. It can help restore a positive mindset.
Frankincense | Rosemary | Patchouli
The third-eye chakra is located right in the centre of your forehead. It is a representation of knowledge and self-reflection.
A combination of frankincense, rosemary and patchouli essential oils will help open the mind to intuitive thoughts and promote clear-thinking and concentration. Rosemary especially will help open a sleeping third-eye chakra.
If the throat chakra becomes blocked, you may find yourself feeling stressed, anxious and unable to open yourself to new experiences or beliefs.
Ylang Ylang is a known essential oil that helps relieve feelings of depression and anxiety. It relaxes the body and promotes joy and love. On the throat chakra it opens the mind, body and soul to insight, acceptance and faith.
The heart chakra is the centre for compassion, trust, boundaries, judgement and forgiveness.
When utilising geranium as a tool to open the heart chakra, you’ll find yourself feeling more centred and able to process situations with a more empathetic approach. Geranium essential oil will assist in making you more open to self-acceptance, forgiveness and unconditional love.
Eucalyptus | Cardamom
The navel chakra, also known as the solar plexus chakra, is located in the abdomen and spreads up to the breastbone. It is a source of personal energy and relates to the power of transformation and self-esteem.
Eucalyptus and cardamom are known to promote a boost in confidence and a reduction in negative thoughts. They help to balance the navel chakra and allow you to tap into your inner warrior energy.
Sweet Orange | Ylang Ylang
The sacral chakra is associated with creativity, emotional feelings and sensuality. It promotes our personal development and guides how we relate to others.
Sweet Orange and Ylang Ylang essential oils are both sensual and warming in nature and are great for boosting your connection with your sacral chakra, opening it up to promote a steady flow of energy throughout the body.
Cedarwood | Patchouli
Our root chakra is the foundation to all other chakras. If it is balanced, we feel safe, secure and grounded in our entire being. Our energy flows first from the earth, into our root chakra, then up through the rest of our chakras. If our root chakra is unbalanced, it is impossible to fully balance the rest of our chakras.
Cedarwood and patchouli both help centre the mind, calm anger and ease tension, allowing us to fully open up and trust the instincts our root chakra provides.
