Chakra wise balancing

A room diffuser having the appropriate essential oil can balance the transcendent Crown chakra. This chakra is located in the middle of your head and the oils appealing you the most can be diffused into the air to get the well functioning of the crown chakra.

Third eye chakra can be balanced by applying the oil or balm on the forehead area with inhalation or simple diffusion. For example, the sleeping third eye chakra can be opened by rosemary essential oil. In the routine activities, we apply body spray or perfume near the throat area for influencing the throat chakra and soothes the communication. The balance makes it easy to express the thoughts with vocal cords in the appropriate way.

Heart chakra benefits from the massage of essential oil to the mid or back area of the chest or direct application of perfumed oil into the breast bone. There are many oils to open the heart chakra or you can even make it quieter with some therapeutic property oils. Heart chakra can well function with the choice of right oil.

Solar plexus chakra can be smoothened by the gentle tummy massage for improving the working. Application of helichrysum or vetiver can calm the chakra and juniper berry and eucalyptus can activate it. The balancing oils can really make the functioning of solar plexus positive.

Your sensuality is affected by the Sacral Chakra, which can benefit from the massage of the lower back area. Again, the oils for activating or calming are different. You can maintain a well-functioning sacral chakra with the right application of sandalwood, ylang ylang, neroli or cardamom essential oils.

Root Chakra can be balanced by the calming massage on foot area. It can make you stable and the essential oils can really leave a positive impact on the functioning of this chakra.

Choosing the right oils is a matter of research and practical implementation. There might be an oil type suitable for me, but it is quite possible that it doesn’t appeal anyone else. Hence, it is important to make the right choice for the appropriate chakra of the body.
