Balancing The Chakras With Essential Oils

Posted by terrepruitt on April 11, 2013

We have energy running through our bodies.  I mean literally we have electric currents in our bodies.  Some people believe there are specific points where these energies converge and concentrate.  The points, called Chakras, “correspond to vital points in the physical body i.e. major plexusaes of arteries, veins and nerves.”  (According to Wiki.)  Energy flows through our bodies and often with the belief of these energy points or chakras there is the belief that they can be blocked or imbalanced.  With the belief that the flow of energy can be blocked or chakras out of balance there are beliefs that they (the chakras) can be cleared or put back in balance.  I believe that there are at least as many beliefs of ways to open the chakras as there are the cultures believe in this type of thing.  There are exercises one can do to get energy moving again.  There are meditations one can do.  I wrote a post about sounds one can make to help heal and open the chakras, you can see that post by clicking here.  Another way to deal with imbalances is with essential oils.

There are many ways this treatment can be done.  The one noted below can be done on oneself, it is an adaptation of the one in the doTERRA Spa Manual.  The oils used in this treatment are blends from doTERRA, but there are single oils that can be used in association with each chakra.  That will be my next post.

Chakra Balancing with doTERRA Essential Oil Blends

60 minutes

Create chakra balance by applying specific oils to assist and support spiritual development and awakening of the chakra energies.

Step 1:  Start by lying face up.  Check your chakras by using a pendant over each of the 7 chakras.  Look for movement of the pendant:

Clockwise circles = an open, balanced chakra
Counter clockwise or oblong circles = imbalance
No movement = blocked

Dance Exercise, Nia, Nia at the City of San Jose, Nia classes in the South Bay, Nia Teacher, Nia Class, San Jose Nia, Nia San Jose, Nia workout, Nia, ZumbaStep 2:  Apply OnGuard on the crown for protection, as you are creating some vulnerability by working on chakras.

Step 3:  (To avoid mixing the oils use a different finger with each oil application.)  Apply oil directly to chakras in clockwise motion.  For the Root chakra apply the oil to the feet.

1.    Crown (#7):  apply Elevation
2.    Third Eye (#6):  apply Serenity
3.    Throat (#5):  apply Whisper
4.    Heart (#4):  apply Breathe
5.    Solar Plexus (#3):  apply Digestzen
6.    Sacral (#2): apply Citrus Bliss
7.    Root (#1):  apply Balance

Step 4:  Check the chakras.  If they are not in balance, apply Purify to the chakra that did not clear, then apply the oil for that chakra again.  Repeat until chakra clears or consider other options, such as discussing the emotions or relationships associated with that chakra or doing the exercise associated with that chakra.

Finish by sitting cross legged and just hold your feet and close your eyes until you feel ready to move into your day/evening/night.

This might be something that could help you if you are interested.  I am interested in chakras and essential oils.  I hadn’t really thought of them together until one day when Marlies came to one of my Nia Classes.  After class several of us were discussing essential oils and chakra balancing came up.  She sent a copy of this treatment to me and I immediately asked for permission to share it on my blog.  I thought it would be something of interest to my readers.

As I stated the oil mentioned in the above are blends from doTERRA.  But a little bit of research on the internet and I found several sites that had lists of oils associated with the different chakras.  I am sure you could order the blends or the individual oils from Marlies.  I am preparing a list of individual essential oils associated with each chakra for my next post.

When Marlies attended my Nia class she brought me a sample of Elevation.  She also gave me another sample but I don’t think it is a blend.  I love the way Elevation smells.  I have the little bottle in my living room and I pick it up and sniff at it all the time.  It is such a lovely scent.  If I had a diffuser I would definitely enjoy having that aroma fill my home.  Other than that, I have not yet tried these other blends.

Well?  What are your thoughts?  Do you have any thoughts on chakras?  What about balancing them with essential oils?
