You chakras are the primary energy centers through which life force energy flows and circulates throughout your entire being. When one or more chakras become blocked, congested, or out of balance, physical challenges, mental turmoil, or emotional imbalance may manifest as a result.
There are many ways to heal the chakras and restore their balanced energetic flow like angel energy healing, yoga, crystals and meditation.
You can also use essential oils to bring harmony and balance to your chakra energy centers.
There are multiple ways you can use essential oils to balance your chakras. You can diffuse essential oils into the air, mix them with a carrier oil like coconut or olive oil and apply them topically in the area of the chakra you’re working on, or you can even ingest some of them like lemon or grapefruit in capsule form, or diluted in tea or water. (Only ingest the purest, food grade essential oils, as others may be toxic.)
I’ve selected some of my favorite essential oils, which correspond to the chakra energy centers and help to restore balance.
Earth Star Chakra- Bottom of your feet.
This is your direct connection to the Earth that allows your entire energy body to be restored and rejuvenated with pure Divine light direct from Mother Earth.
Essential oils like myrrh, cedarwood, purification and vetiver will help to clear this energy center and restore balance to the light at the core of the Earth through your Earth Star Chakra.
Root Chakra- Base of the spine, in the area of your tailbone.
The foundation for your entire chakra system, this is where your sense of security, stability, energy, and survival are located.
Essential oils like patchouli, cedarwood, sandalwood, thieves, grounding, and frankincense will help to restore balance to your Root Chakra.

This if your communication center, and it oversees the ability to listen, to express your truth and to clearly communicate.

Soul Star Chakra- About a foot above the top of your head.
This chakra is like the chalice for your soul light. It is your connection to compassion, unconditional love, higher consciousness, and pure Divine Presence.
Essential oils like jasmine, rose, neroli, peppermint, copaiba, joy, and sacred frankincense will balance and harmonize your soul star chakra.
Keep in mind, the essential oils you can use to balance your chakras aren’t limited to the ones above. Follow your intuition and use good judgement. Be sure to read the labels and only use the highest quality and purity oils within their range of specific use.
Another important thing to keep in mind is the power of intention. When you’re rubbing a drop of lavender on your forehead in the area of your third eye, place the intention for the lavender to help balance and harmonize your third eye chakra.
