Chakra is a Sanskrit word meaning wheel and refers to the wheels of light energy located along the midline of our body. The chakras regulate our flow of energy and reflect how we choose to respond to situations and conditions of our life.
Beginning with the root chakra at the base of the spine and continuing up the spine to the crown at the top of the head, these chakras are energy portals through which psychological and spiritual energies flow in the mind-body interface. Each chakra has its own interaction with a part of the body and its own purpose.
When each of the chakras are openly radiant and not excessively dominant, then the chakra system is balanced, creating harmony between the physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual aspects of a person. The use of essential oils is a wonderful way to balance and cleanse the chakras and attune to love and light.
