Understanding and Harnessing Your Chakras

One of the many alternative healing therapies that have become popular in the last thirty years or so includes the art of balancing chakras. However, for most people, knowing about them in detail is still a foreign concept.


Originating from South Asia, chakras are linked to our existence, body, mind and soul, which makes healing and empowering them so important. Let’s look at how holistic aromatherapy products can achieve that.


Chakras 101

Chakras are essentially part of an ancient text called the Vedas that emerged from the region known as India today between 1500 and 1000 BC. The word chakra comes from the Sanskrit word meaning wheel and refers to wheels of energy that reside at different parts in our body that are meant to spin continuously.


The chakras are the seven power points in the human body that circulate energy or the life force, also known as "prana". They are vertically aligned in the center of the body close to the spine. Keeping our physical body alive, healthy and functioning well is a complex exercise in balancing (homeostasis) and keeps all the chemicals, hormones, and processes of our body in harmony with each other. If our body deviates from a state of homeostasis, we are having problems. In the same way, our chakras must be in balance and aligned with each other. When our chakras (or any aspect of our energy system) are out of balance, it can have a deep impact on our physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual health. 


The essential oils used in my aromatherapy sprays can help ease the physical as well as mental manifestation of a problem.

Harnessing Chakras with Aromatherapy Sprays

Let’s look at the holistic aromatherapy products I offer to balance your chakras:


      • Root Chakra Spray: The root chakra relates to how grounded and stable we are, which is why oils like cedarwood and vetiver can help stabilize your being. A rhodochrosite crystal at the bottom of the bottle aids circulation.

      • Sacral Chakra Spray: The sacral chakra corresponds with creativity, passion and sexuality, which is why sandalwood, bergamot, clary sage and wild orange work in harmony to revive this energy. The crystal here is a clear crystal quartz.

      • Solar Plexus Chakra Spray: The chamomile and rosemary soothe the digestion and help open up self-expression for this chakra that relates to self-confidence. The peridot crystal's energy adds support.

      • Heart Chakra Spray: Jasmine, lavender and sandalwood are perfect here, to help people increase their capacity for loving others and themselves. A rose quartz finishes off the concoction.

      • Throat Chakra Spray: With frankincense and eucalyptus to help open up creativity and confidence and lavender that underpins self-care and love, speaking the truth and being your authentic self becomes easier. Amazonite boosts this process.

      • Third Eye Chakra Spray: Seeing the truth is not easy, but this spray uses carrot seed to enhance intuition, palo santo for letting go of toxic emotions, petitgrain to relieve mental fatigue and amethyst to harness higher knowledge.

      • Crown Chakra Spray: Similar to the last, the petitgrain here relieves a clogged mind, but the bergamot brings us back to our origin and cedarwood grounds us, thus creating the perfect mixture to harness the ultimate truth. The clear quartz in this bottle unleashes clarity.
