Chakras and Essential Oils

Have you ever felt unbalanced in some aspect of your life? Of course you have, we all have. Our chakras, or energy centres of the body, can help us identify where that imbalance is. There are many tools to get each chakra back in balance and flowing. Essential oils are a great way to rebalance our chakras and get stagnant energy moving.

How to use:


Smell the oil straight from the bottle as needed.

Diffuse the oil in the room with an essential oil steam diffuser.

Add 10 drops to 100 ml water and spray around the room.

Blend several oils together and use smell straight from the bottle or diffuse.

Make a reed diffuser: Add 50 drops essential oil to 50 ml perfumer’s alcohol, add a bunch of bamboo sticks.


Add 2-5 drops to 10 ml roller bottle (one drop is enough for children under the age of 12, never use essential oils on children under the age of 5). Add carrier oil (fractionated coconut oil, grapeseed oil, jojoba oil) to the bottle. Invert 50 times to mix. Apply to the wrists, top of spine or just smell it straight from the bottle.


I do not recommend ever taking essential oils internally. It can be very dangerous and should not be done without direct instruction from a licensed physician. The response to essential oils aromatically and topically is much more immediate and effective, there is no reason to take them internally. Essential oils should be considered like a DRUG and children should NOT handle pure essential oil bottles - EVER.
