are you balanced? bring balance to your chakra

Feeling off recently? It may be your chakra is in need of some major attention. The seven chakras are the centers in our bodies in which energy flows through. Blocked energy in our seven chakras can disrupt our system, lead to illness, and leave us feeling generally off. 

Because your chakra influences your physical body, it's important to understand what each chakra represents and what we can do to keep this energy flowing freely. 

To keep your chakras active and healthy, you can practice yoga, meditation, and by using essential oils. Simply apply essential oils directly to your chakra area, hands or pulse points to encourage enlightenment.

7 essential oils to promote balance

  1. Root Chakra
    The 1st chakra, also known as the base or root chakra, is positioned at the base of the spine and associated with the color red. It is linked with our vertebrae, bladder, and colon, and governs feelings of security and basic survival needs.

    When the base chakra is in balance we feel safe and at home in the world. When out of balance, we may feel insecure, ungrounded, negative, greedy, and unable to move forward. It is impossible to fully balance the other chakras if the root chakra is imbalanced.

  2. Sacral Chakra
    The 2nd or sacral chakra is positioned between the pubic bone and naval, and associated with the color orange. It is linked with our sex and reproductive organs, and lower abdomen. It governs feelings of sensuality and creativity, and relates to our emotions and relationships.

    When the sacral chakra is in balance, we take pleasure in life and creative expression, feel abundant, and have a healthy sexual appetite. When out of balance, we may feel stuck, overly dependent, over-indulgent, or lacking in sexual desire.

    It governs feelings of self-esteem, identity, and will. When the solar plexus chakra is in balance, we feel confident and powerful. When out of balance we may feel manipulative, selfish, and lack direction or ambition.

    It governs feelings of love, joy, compassion, and inner peace, and strongly influences our ability to give and receive love in a healthy way. When the heart chakra is in balance we feel compassionate, insightful, peaceful, and able to cope with sadness. When out of balance we may feel defensive, jealous, isolated, and hold grudges.

    When the throat chakra is in balance, we feel expressive, communicative, and creative. When out of balance we may feel out of control, unable to listen to others, have a fear of speaking, and lack of purpose in life.
