“Chakra“, the Sanskrit word for “wheel“, refers to seven site specific concentrations of energy emanating from the body that spin in opposite directions creating energy or Chi…
Contrary to most language around we do not have open and closed Chakras…as if we had a closed Chakra we would be dead…
These chakra points refer to our organs and glands and meridian lines throughout our bodies. They can be expanded further and utilised more but are never closed, but energy can be trapped or lacking in flow to that area. The spinning motion can slow or spin to fast. Each Chakra is positively charged and negatively charged but should have a balance of both continuously…when this flow isn’t happening an imbalance occurs in the body and negative emotions can arise leading to sickness and disease. All babies are born with a complete open Chakra flow, but over time this can be blocked by traumas, their needs not being met or societies conditionings or patterning imprinted on them.
Things that support our Chakras are movement, mediation, nutrition, nature and I have found Essential Oils also help to support them to. Think of your body like a recorder with holes on both side not just one side, your chakras or energy centres shine through both sides of your body legs and arms. So you heart charkas has a point on the front and back of your body. This is handy to remember when applying essential oils. Your Crown Chakra is above your head in your energy body and you have ones below your body to. The leg and arm Chakras are less talked about but can be delved in to once you get comfortable with your 7 main Chakras.
The idea is to apply activating essential oils to energise a sluggish Chakra function or calming oils to quiet the over-active ones. Balancing oils are good for maintaining support of well-regulated Chakras. A combination of both activating and calming oils will tend to have an overall balancing and supportive benefit to the Chakras. This is an ever-flowing journey…some days one is more activated than another, depending on what life presents and how we are emotionally and physically…and what our environment is.
This is a guide to the oils that have worked for me. Each persons needs are different, so I invite you to really choose an oil that makes you feel good and you represent to it in some way, be it colour, smell or emotion connection. There is no right or wrong in using oils for emotion support…DM me if you would like to attend a Chakra emotions education class.
Charkas and The Corresponding Oils:
CROWN CHAKRA SUPPORT (7th Sahasrara) –
Myrrh and Salubelle are great oils to encourage energy and flow in your crown chakra. This is especially helpful if you are feeling depressed or low in energy. Using some on the crown of your head or in a diffuser will help you feel activated here.
Neroli and Cedarwood ground you in this area, especially if you are open in the Crown Chakra before your Root Chakra has expanded you may receive lots of tension headaches or find you get very dizzy. Using these oils will balance this. I like to Diffuse them in my home. It is important to work on your lower Chakras before you expand your Crown and Third eye, so you have grounding and balance and do not feel away with the fairy’s with no clarity.
Frankincense is my favourite oil to maintain a connection to my soul and the universal energy and keep my Chakra line expanding and spinning with ease. This is a daily oil for me no matter what else my body needs. Using this oil while you practice daily EFT is helpful to your spiritual expansion.
THIRD EYE (6th Ajana) –
Rosemary and Patchouli will help break down the Fluoride and awaken your penal gland adding Coriander can help with heavy metals in this area to. Using these oils regularly in a rollerball can prevent headaches from this Chakra needing more energy flow.
Bringing balance and stabilizing this area if it has been activated to fast or over used I find Roman Chamomile, and Clary Sage helpful.
For clarity and clear vision I suggest using Frankincense and Sandalwood on your third eye…especially before mediation or if you need clarity in your day.
THROAT (5th Vishudda) –
Energise: Making a spritzer spray with Lemon and Basil oil and water will help an under active Thyroid and energise this area and expand energy to this area and your self expression.
If you have an over active Thyroid then using Roman Chamomile and Jasmine will help slow the thyroid production down and balance the energy to this area.
Maintenance: Coriander and Clary Sage essential oil is great to keep an even expression of the Thyroid/Throat Chakra.
HEART (4th Anahata) –
Massaging Forgive and Basil on to your heart space in a clockwise motion will activate this area…while you visualise sending out light to others and the planet will help to bring in more energy and expand this area helping with depression.
If you are over activated in this area and need a calming affect and healing oils I suggest using Lavender and Marjoram worn as a daily perfume to overcome heartache.
Geranium and Rose is a great way to keep balance and activation with lots of light energy pouring in keeping you content and joyful.
SOLAR PLEXUS SUPPORT (3rd Manipuri) –
Because this is your energy field around your gut using Eucalyptus, Peppermint, Juniper Berry and DigestZen with gentle massage anti- clockwise will help to activate a sluggish digestive system and bring more healing light in to this area.
And to calm this area if there is too much energy flow and you have an inflamed gut use Vetiver and Helichrysum, this will help with self esteem and judgment.
If you have good balance in this Chakra use Lemon, Bergamot, Fennel and Grapefruit to keep the flow of energy in maintenance with Castor Oil packs and Massage.
SACRAL CHAKRA SUPPORT (2nd Svadishana) –
Massaging spicy hot oils like Cardamom, Pepper and On Guard will help active a sluggish energy or diffusing them while you meditate.
While Neroli and Ylang Ylang will calm an over activation in this area allowing a calming effect and a reduction of Anxiety.
And Wild Orange and Sandalwood will help with maintenance once this area is in balanced for a sense of self.
ROOT CHAKRA SUPPORT 1st Muladhara –
Awaken your root chakra with Clove, Cinnamon and On Guard by placing some in a diffuser and moving your body with dance…especially thumping tribal dance where you activate you base area.
Using Patchouli and Vetiver in a daily foot massage with Fractionated Coconut oil will help bring balance to your Root Chakra. Especially while you visualise the life you want to live.
Once this area is balanced supporting the energy with Bergamot and Lavender Peace with nurturing warm salt baths.
LEGS/ARM CHAKRA SUPPORT –
We have arm and leg Chakras and also energy wheels that are below our feet as we know above our heads. These can be supported with dry brushing the whole body with Fractionated Coconut oil and Cedarwood and Wild Orange. Saunas, movement and massage.
“The Patala, located in the soles of the feet, is said to be aligned with malice and hatred as well as forgiveness. The Mahatala is located more centrally in the foot near the arch and is aligned with a sense of entitlement and lack of conscience as well as expansiveness. The Rasatala is located in the ankles and is aligned with selfishness and charity, while the Talatala is located in the calves and is aligned with a materialism for the self and an awareness of being conscious. Sutala is in the knees and is aligned to inadequacy, inferiority, but also self-confidence. Vitala in the thighs aligns with blind wrath while also aligned to forgiveness. Atala in the hips is aligned to lustful promiscuity and the ability to be healthily sexual.”
Enjoy experimenting with which oils work for you and support your journey to health. Remember to dilute with a carrier oil when using on your skin and especially on children.

We have used CBD oil to support Edward respiratory weaknesses and his energy and to help detoxify his body….we have found it to be so helpful over the years, and also in my energy levels to. But it is expensive and as not legal here yet so hard to get.
So you can understand my excitement for my family and my ASD families I work with when this oil got realised from doTERRA!!
CBD oil is distilled directly from the cannabis plant, this natural botanical concentrate is non-psychotropic, which means it does not cause the euphoric high that is commonly associated with cannabis when smoked. Copaiba essential oil is not hemp-based but is distilled from the gum resin that is tapped from the Brazilian Copaifera reticulata tree. Amazingly, however, these two oils are incredibly similar in their properties and give similar results! But It’s more cost effective and MUCH easy to get and you can travel with this interstate.
The main component of both oils is beta-caryophyllene, which has been extensively studied for it’s massive anti-inflammatory properties and for it’s ability to modulate the body’s response to injury and irritation. It is a very power aid in supporting the central nervous system….it’s anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, anti- phlogistic, cooling, a decongestant and a great disinfectant and high anti-oxidant…. a great balancer for the whole body.
We all have cannabinoid receptors in our bodies and they are super important for homeostasis. They are found all over the body, in the brain, organs, tissues, glands and immune cells. By using CBD oil or now Copaiba oil the benefits include pain relief, reduces anxiety, effective against cancer, treats seizures and other neurological issues, prevention of diabetes through lower insulin levels and promotes cardiovascular health. This is the power of cannabinoids!
While CBD oil contains a strong amount of beta-caryophyllene at about 30 %….Copaiba essential oil contains a whopping 40-70 %! What that means is just a few drops of this amazing oil can have all the benefits of CBD oil and then some, so you get a stronger therapeutic component while using less product and again more affordable. Team this with the ASD power houses like InTune, Vetiver, Frankincense, Lavender, On Guard, Wild Orange, Easy Air, Zentocrine, DigestZen and Peppermint and your family will have natures force on your side…to cope with emotions, immune support, Detoxification and behaviours.

doTERRA have so many beautiful oils for supporting your family. At the start of our journey I was hesitant to use Essential Oils (EO’s) as we were so sensitive to everything and didn’t understand how they could help us. However Autism has a habit of introducing you to things you never knew existed. Slowly I have introduced the oils into my home and over time began to adore them and their properties. Like all things it’s a balance . . . so no EO will be the “CURE’ to your condition or symptom, but they can help calm your children, detox your bodies, clean your home and break energy.
Dr. Mark Hyman says, “Autism is not a brain disorder, it’s a disorder that affects the brain.
So let’s use Essential oils to support the brain and nervous system!!
Each doTERRA essential oil is also carefully and thoroughly tested using the strict CPTG Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade® quality protocol. … The essential oils are liberated from the plant and carried away by the steam. When the steam cools, the water and oils naturally separate and the oil is collected, as you all know by now only the purest best food or water will enter our lives and thats why I will only ever recommend this company. They are ethical, vegan, sustainable and eco friendly. They give back to the planet and look after their members. To retail purchase these beautiful oils you can contact me on 0414967763 or if you would like to join the beautiful doTERRA family and have a wholesale account with no lock-in reorders and with the opportunity to get free monthly oils and incentives and grow a business please email me on firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss this more.
How to Apply Essential Oils.
Topically, by mixing a few drops with fractionated coconut oil then applying to the base of the neck with a roller ball.
Adding a few drops to a diffuser (make sure the diffiser is in the same room as the child)
Adding one or two drops directly on the child. (Be careful with this as some oils are considered hot and can burn, so look at the label beforehand.) These are my favourite oils that I use daily.
Since many with ADD/ADHD, aspergers, or autism are highly sensitive to odours and sometime touch, do not force the application of oils if it is a negative experience as this will build experiential resentment towards their use in the future. Many times it is successful letting them make their own selection from a few choices of oils. Some kids with autism/sensory processing/sensitivities are particularly sensitive to smell and may resist the use of oils. Applying to the feet, even after they are asleep, or put the diffuser inn the hall way to start or in their room after they go to sleep…there are ways can get you over this problem.
Here are my favourite oils to support Autism, ADHD and ADD and to support ASD parents.
One of the first oils we tried was peppermint. My youngest used to get chest infections and high fever, and since I didn’t want to use medications. I used peppermint as a fever reducer and it works! It also helps with migraines, increasing oxygen if your tired and stomach pains. I put a drop right on his forehead. But it is ideal to have a roller bottle with a mixture of the peppermint oil and a carrier oil like doTERRA fractionated coconut oil. You can then rub this mixture on the forehead or the back of the neck.
Another essential in your house and a regular in my home and handbag would be Lavender. It works great for relaxing and winding down before bedtime as it relaxes the nervous system. This is a great oil for those kids that can’t go to bed or don’t sleep well during the night. Using lavender helps you sleep longer at night, it also helps you sleep deeper. Lavender alone may not be enough for you so I would suggest for those really wired kids using Vetiver too. I put the diffuser on at night and this helps as well as putting some in a spray bottle with water to mist the pillow cases and sheets or dab it directly on the pillow or their soft toy. Lavender is great for cuts as it stops the bleeding, and for bites, eczema (use in the bath or with a carrier oil) and bruises. You can also add it to your face cream for extra moisture too ladies!
Vetiver as I just mentioned is amazing for deep sleep and great for those who have insomnia. Vetiver is psychologically grounding, calming, and stabilising for the nervous system. It helps with night terrors, restlessness, balancing emotions and ADHD. It was studied by Dr. Terry Friedmann for improving children’s behavior with ADD and ADHD in 100% of children in his study aged between 6-14. It may help people cope with stress and recover better from emotional trauma and shock. This oil helps quiet an overactive, exhausted or stressed mind. Also, it a great choice in helping to control anger, irritability, or neurotic behavior. We have found it helpful for calming William from his meltdowns when he was younger and currently if he gets over excited or worried and his nervous system gets overwhelmed. Watch how they source this amazingly powerful oil here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pFYFgNSxYxk For school children that need help during the school day or may have ADD or need improved concentration, a necklace with a pendant that will absorb the oil can make it available all day or a sandalwood necklace that will absorb the oil or even dabbing some on there shirt collar.
Console Touch is one of my ultimate must have oils for kids. This oil has stopped more meltdowns than I can count and fast!! Console promotes feelings of comfort and hope during times of loss or sadness. This proprietary blend combines the sweet and musky aroma of dōTERRA Console essential oil blend with Fractionated Coconut Oil for gentle application. Apply to the heart when feeling worried, sad, or unsettled. I don’t leave home without it!! Balance this with InTune Touch to for magic duo!
Cedarwood I use in combination with Lavender. Cedarwood helps to stimulate the pituitary and pineal glands. It can also aid in increasing melatonin levels naturally starting to calm the kids down ready for dinner, bath and bed routine. It also can help with good sleep at night and focus during the next day. I pick the kids up from school when they are tired but excited and this if not managed can lead to meltdowns as they are often hungry too. So I hang my ‘smelly balls’ http://www.cocodaydream.com.au/smellyballshop in my car with cedarwood and lavender on them and within 5 minutes of them being in the car they both start calming down and talking about there day. If they are not at school I use this combination in my diffuser. Cedarwood is also great for edema and achy legs.
Frankincense the king of oils and my favourite!! It’s my go to oil for everything from cuts, anti-ageing and skin issues. It is extremely helpful in regenerating cells, calming and relaxing and promoting higher levels of consciousness in mediation as it stimulates the limbic system of the brain. This part of the brain controls instincts and mood and helps with epilepsy. It is very good at bringing a hyper or excited child down into his or her body and grounding them again. You can get it in a roller ball blend called InTune which is great to carry for trips to the supermarket or outings that might send your child off into a meltdown or into stimming. InTune is a special blend (Amyris, Frankincense, Lime, Patchouli, Roman Chamomile, Sandalwood, Ylang Ylang) prepared to enhance focus and support healthy thought processes, good for homework and concentration at school or the office. Don’t be put of with the price of frankincense as it is such an all round oil it will be an essential to your families needs.
Helichrysum italicum is considered a medicinal plant with many promising pharmacological activities because it operates as a natural antibiotic, antifungal and antimicrobial. Allergies, acne, colds, coughs, skin inflammation, wound healing, constipation, indigestion and Acid Reflux, liver diseases, gallbladder disorders, inflammation of the muscles and joints, infections, candida, insomnia, stomachaches
and bloating . . . wow thats one oil! Yup its up there with frankincense and the go to oil and a must for an ASD family. Best of all is is a blood coagulant which means when your child is upset abd has a bloody cut it will stop the blood fast without the need for plasters or intervention that could cause the meltdown to get worst.
For frustration, impatience, and anger use oils and blends that calm. Like Balance,Serenity, Lavender, Ylang Ylang, Console, Intune or the kids Range. Applying to the feet, back of the neck, behind the knees, and diffusion are all suggested.
You can make up blends to help with calming, relaxation and serenity within the home. This is one of my favourite to make up in a rollerball.
On Guard is the only medical first aid kit you will ever need! It helps boost your immune systems and protect against flu, colds, and viruses. As this is a hot oil (meaning it feels warm on the skin, always dilute it for kids. Adults can have it neat on their feet) Simple add 5 drops to 15 drops of fractionated coconut and rub on your kids feet at night once they have gone to bed. You can also get beedlets that you swallow too and throat sweets or you can make up a throat gargle with it too. You can dilute it with water and use it to clean your kitchen with and it’s ideal for your diffusers, killing of all bad bacteria and microbes and moulds and kill air bourne pathogens. It’s great to clear stuck energy too and I often use a spray bottle with water to clear a room. It works as great hand sanitiser and i make up a small 15ml spray bottle with 10 drops of oil and carry it in my bag.
DigestZen and Zendocrine in combination with On Guard these are powerful combination to support the gut flora and reduce unwanted parasites, bacteria and yeast overgrowths. I get my kids to swallow veggie capsule with these in but before they could I use to run these eon their feet or spines or use them in tea or smoothies.
The doTERRA detox/cold/flu support. “It really, really works!! A more natural alternative to the toxic flu shot.”
3 drops Oregano
5 drops OnGuard
5 drops Tee Tree (Melaleuca)
5 drops Lemon
3 drops Peppermint
2 drops Oregano
2 drops Frankincense
2 drops OnGuard
Put this in a Veggie Cap and take every 3 to 4 hours or as needed.
Another way is applying topically with fractionated coconut oil. This is great for using on young children.
Another way is for children to put oregano, melaleuca and OnGuard essential oil blend on their feet (1 drop of each and apply every 2-3 hours).
You can also can add 2 to 3 drops of On Guard essential oil blend.
Basil is great for those kids on the spectrum who are low functioning as it stimulates the nervous system and wakes up the brain, and helps with concentration, increases focus. We used this on Edward lots when he was behind on his fine and gross motor skills and speech.
DDR Prime is my newest favourite oil. The Cellular Complex blend also includes essential oils from Frankincense, Lemongrass, Summer Savory and Niaouli leaf, which help support a healthy immune response. I have found that DDR Prime is calming to the nervous system of sensitive kids. Soothe the body and the mind by taking a drop internally or combine with a carrier oil and massage into the skin. Supportive to the health of the brain and nervous system, and has had great results with speech days and brain function…use DDR Prime as daily overall wellness support.
Supports healthy cellular integrity
Protects body and cells from oxidative stress
Promotes overall cellular health
Supports the health of the brain and nervous system
Aids in a healthy immune response
Recipe: Fill a 10 ml roller bottle halfway full with fractionated coconut oil, then add 4 drops of Frankincense essential oil, 4 drops of DDR Prime essential oils, 2 drops turmeric 2 drops Zendocrine and 2 drops Copabia. Roller on the neck or spine twice a day.
Oregano the queen of oils. It’s anti-bacterial, anti-fungal and a anti-septic to the respiratory system also antiviral and an immune stimulant. There is no need for antibiotics from the Doctor when you have this oil. 1-2 weeks of taking this oil before winter and you will sale through with no nasty bugs. If you come down with gastro, a virus or cold or flu start taking this for 3-4 weeks. It is also very good for wounds and fungus infections.
Tee Tree (Melaleuca) is amazing for ear infections. Either run a bath and get you child to bath there whole head in covering the art or simple place some diluted around the outside of the ear. In extreme cases you could add 1 drop in a carrier oil and drop it in to the ear canal it self.
Breathe/Easy Air is the perfect blend for asthma, croup, colds, exercising, coughs, tightness in the chest or for sore throats and the elimination of bacteria and viruses from the body as it opens up the airways. Simple put a diffuser in your child’s room with 5-10 drops in and let them fall asleep. You could add a few drops to there pillow too.
Copaiba is a resin, which Copaiba oil originates from, has been used medicinally since at least 1625 for the natural treatment of health concerns like bronchitis, chronic cystitis, chronic diarrhoea and haemorrhoids. Along side Easy Air I have found this to be a essentail oil for our home. It’s properties are also great for the skin and acne and soothes the nervous system and is anti-inflammatory. I love it with Turmeric and frankincense for its anti-inflammatory effects. Learn more here: https://nourishtohealth.com.au/2017/10/09/copaibavs-cbd-oil/
These oils are mazing and along side a healthy raw vegan plant lifestyle, fresh air and clean water they are there to support your families needs.
