“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.”
