Aromatherapy and Chakras
Balancing Your Body's Energy Centers for Optimal Health and Wellbeing
Within Aromatherapy and Chakras, aromatherapy educator and author Salvatore Battaglia offers us a solid foundation into the origins of the chakras. He includes a detailed section for each chakra and he explores how essential oils can be used for chakra balancing. As you may know if you've read any of Salvatore Battaglia's other aromatherapy books, Sal's writing style is comfortable, personable and easy to grasp.
Aromatherapy and Chakras is a work of art in itself. This lovely hard cover book is beautifully laid out with ample color illustrations and photos. The organization of the book, font size and other thoughtful details enhance the learning experience and make the book an even greater pleasure to read.

From the Back Cover of Aromatherapy and Chakras by Salvatore Battaglia:
The aromatherapy and chakras workshop that I have been teaching for over 20 years has always been my most popular workshop. It is an excellent way to incorporate my passion for essential oils within a holistic framework to promote personal and spiritual growth.
Many of us are aware of chakras and have some understanding of how they influence our wellbeing; however, the origins of chakras are shrouded in mystery.
In Aromatherapy and Chakras - balancing your body's energy centers for optimal health and wellbeing, I will demystify the origins of the chakras. I share with you my personal journey into the chakras and provide you with my interpretation of how we can use chakras to reconnect our body, mind and spirit. I hope that this book provides you with insight to use essential oils within a holistic framework of the Western concept of chakras as psycho-energetic centers and energy medicine.
I introduce you to the principles of subtle therapies and energy medicine. We examine the scientific evidence for the existence of chakras and review the results of a study that confirms the relationship between the chakras and essential oils. We examine how modern Western psychology and transpersonal psychologists are using chakras to provide us with a more holistic framework of understanding human consciousness.
We examine each of the major seven chakras in detail, examining the influence that each chakra has on our psyche and wellbeing, what to expect when the chakra is balanced or not balanced, and most importantly, strategies to keep the chakras balanced using essential oils.
