Spending more time at home means I’ve been playing around with my essential oils a little more. I love how versatile essential oils are and that they can be used to help open and align our chakras. With all the turmoil in the world currently, I’ve found it important to actively keep myself grounded, and one way I do this is to work on balancing my chakras.
Chakras are centers of energy that move within us that connect our physical bodies with our consciousness. We have seven chakras; Root, Sacral, Solar Plexus, Heart, Throat, Third Eye, and Crown. Each chakra has different properties from love to intuition and expression.
Today I’m focusing on the Heart Chakra. I think it is important to focus on love and keeping myself open to love during this time. It’s easy to focus on all the negatives happening in the world, so instead I’m challenging myself to see all the good I have in my life and all the love I’m surrounded by. When the Heart Chakra is blocked or imbalanced, we can tend to be too judgmental of ourselves and self critical. We may also find ourselves suffering from loneliness and isolation, and with quarantines currently in place we don’t need to feel anymore isolated than we already are.
An easy way to help open and balance the Heart chakra is with essential oil blends. One of my favorite essential oil combos is Rose, Tangerine, and Lemon. Alone all of these oils work wonders at opening the Heart Chakra, but together they also have a pleasing scent.
Rose essential oil helps open the Heart Chakra and allow us to feel unconditional love as well as creating a sense of well-being. Lemon essential oil helps to bring clarity and to lift spirits with it’s bright citrus scent. Lemon essential oil is also known to be a natural stress reliever, which we can all use right now. Tangerine essential oil, like lemon, is known to calm as well as lift your mood.
Here is what I put in my diffuser to help with balancing and opening my Heart Chakra. Five drops rose, 5 drops lemon, 5 drops tangerine.
I hope you find this essential oil blend useful and experiment with different blends that you love.
