Each blend combines different essential oils known to target the particular requirements and effects of each chakra. Using essential oils in this way helps to re-balance our chakras by directing specific energy towards reformatting old patterns in each one.
The root chakra oil blend is the first in the series and is said to be located at the base of your spine, with the intention to spiritually ground you. Root chakra essential oils tend to be earthy and warming with the intention to uplift.
The remaining chakras travel up your body and are said to target varying factors of mindfulness from creativity and identity to love and communication.
How do I use chakra oils?
As with many essential oils, the most common way to use chakra oils is through diffusion, allowing the scent of the blend to fill the room as you conduct your practice. Alternatively, some people prefer to add the oils to water or to a carrier oil in a spray bottle and spray around the room.
Our chakra aromatherapy kit can also be applied topically to the relevant chakra points in the body, however, we always advise conducting a patch test before use in this way, as well as ensuring the oil is diluted with a carrier oil before application.
