Essential Oil Recipes for Balancing the Chakras

Topical Essential Oil Chakra Blends

I personally find that the best way to bring balance to a clogged or congested chakra is to work directly on the chakra by applying a suitable essential oil blend. Below is the general method in which I prepare my own aromatherapy chakra blends:

Ingredients

  • 1 oz. Pure Carrier Oil
    Jojoba is a good choice as it is nutritive for the skin and is a more stable carrier.
  • 10-15 drops Essential Oil
    Select essential oils that are shown to help balance the chakra that you want to focus upon and clear. Each of the individual chakra pages located on AromaWeb list the essential oils known to help balance that particular chakra (scroll down on this page to view the links). Bear in mind that some oils listed for each individual chakra are not the gentlest on the skin or can be contraindicated in some situations. For instance, Rosemary Essential Oil is known to help balance the Solar Plexus Chakra, but it's best to avoid Rosemary Essential Oil if you are pregnant or have epilepsy. Cinnamon is another essential oil known to help balance the Solar Plexus chakra, but it's best to dramatically limit the use of cinnamon and other spicy oils in skin applications and instead, reserve such oils for the diffuser. Since you will be applying this blend directly to your skin, be sure that you select a single essential oil or a combination (synergy) of essential oils that are not irritating to the skin.
  • 1 oz. Clean Dark Glass Bottle
    I prefer to use bottles that have either an orifice reducer or treatment pump top.

Directions:

  • Add the carrier oil and essential oil to your bottle and label it. The blend does not have to be highly aromatic to be effective. Remember to never apply essential oils to the skin without first diluting them. Read AromaWeb's Safety Information for general safety information in working with essential oils.
  • In a quiet, peaceful setting, add 2-3 drops of your Topical Chakra Blend to your fingertips and then lightly apply the Chakra Blend to the associated chakra in a clockwise direction.
  • For the root chakra, I usually apply my blend either to my feet and/or to my lower back, near my tailbone, but not directly on it.
  • Do not apply your blend on your genitals. Keep your blend away from mucous membranes, your eyes or any areas of your body that have damaged skin or are prone to sensitivity or irritation. Discontinue use of the blend if you discover irritation.
  • Once you have applied the blend, focus upon positive thoughts and intentions aimed towards balancing the chakra.
  • Ideal times to use the blend are during times of meditation or while practicing yoga, listening to peaceful music or relaxing.

If you prefer not to create your own Chakra Blends, SunRose Aromatics offers a very nice collection of ready-made Chakra Blends and a charming book on Chakra Balancing. Read more about the book and Chakra Collection on AromaWeb or go directly to SunRose Aromatics.

Essential Oil Diffusion

Another helpful method that can help bring balance to your energy centers is to diffuse particular essential oils that are known to help restore balance to the chakra(s) that you are working with. Each individual Chakra page on AromaWeb lists the essential oils known to bring balance to that particular chakra (see the links below). Simply diffuse one or a combination of the essential oils while you meditate, practice yoga, listen to peaceful music or relax. Be sure that you refer to the directions that came with your particular electric or passive diffuser. If you are new to the idea of diffusion, visit AromaWeb's All About Diffusers article.
