7 Essential Oil Blends to Balance Chakras

Did you know we have these energy centers in our bodies called chakras? They're like the traffic cops of our internal energy flow, keeping everything moving smoothly. But when they get blocked up, it's like rush hour on the freeway - chaos!

Luckily, essential oils are a natural and effective way to unblock those chakras and get everything flowing smoothly again. These little bottles of plant power can help us achieve balance and harmony in our lives, and who doesn't want more of that?

So let's journey through the different chakras and see which essential oils can help us. Get ready to feel that energy flowing, baby!

What are Chakras?

Oh, you want me to explain chakras? Well, listen up. In ancient India, way back in 1500 BC, people were already talking about chakras. They're like energy centers in your body; opening them up can help you reach a higher level of peace and transcendence. Nowadays, you might hear about chakras in yoga or meditation classes because they're super important for getting that good energy flowing and becoming more self-aware.

So, chakras are like these little energy hubs in our bodies located all up and down our spines. Think of them as the control centers for physical, emotional, and mental health. When they're all in sync and balanced, we feel like Wonder Woman. But when they get blocked up, it's like we've been hit by a kryptonite truck.

So, there are seven main chakras, each with its own unique set of attributes. And when these bad boys work in harmony, we feel like a million bucks. But we can experience some pretty gnarly health issues when they're not. So let's balance these chakras and get back in the game with some essential oils!

The Seven Main Chakras and their Essential Oils

Each chakra has unique attributes that contribute to our overall sense of balance and well-being. So, get ready for an informative ride! Here's a more detailed overview of the seven main chakras:

Root Chakra (Muladhara) – “I Am”

Associated Color: Red

Associated Gemstone: Coral, ruby, garnet

Experience of the Self: Self-respect, self-importance

Like the roots of a tree, the root chakra is essential to keeping us grounded. This chakra forms during ages 1-7 and is located at the base of our spine. It plays a significant role in maintaining feelings of security and confidence, especially during challenging situations. A blocked root chakra may lead to fear, insecurity, and uncertainty about one's purpose.

Balancing the root chakra is crucial before opening any other chakra, as it is the body's foundation. Our Breathe blend, containing Black Pepper, Ravintsara, and Eucalyptus essential oils, helps to stimulate vital life forces and open the root chakra, bringing back feelings of safety and security. These essential oils also help achieve overall balance in all seven chakras.

Sacral Chakra (Swadhisthana) – "I Feel"

Associated Colour: Orange

Associated Gemstone: Carnelian, fire opal

Experience of the Self: Self-gratification

The sacral chakra is below the belly button and influences creativity, positivity, and sexuality. An imbalanced sacral chakra can result in a sense of withdrawal, lack of control, fear of intimacy, and vulnerability. Our Sunshine blend, consisting of Sweet Orange, Mandarin, and Bergamot essential oils, helps to rebalance the sacral chakra by uplifting emotions and sensations, leading to a more positive outlook and inspiring creative problem-solving.

Solar Plexus Chakra (Manipura) – “I Do”

Associated Colour: Yellow

Associated Gemstone: Topaz, amber, citrine

Experience of the Self: Willpower, motivation, positivity

The solar plexus chakra, which is situated in the upper belly and stomach, is essential to sustaining a positive sense of self. Imbalances in this chakra may lead to self-doubt and powerlessness in one's abilities. Our Muscle Ease blend contains Ginger, Juniper, Helichrysum, and Myrrh essential oils that connect with the solar plexus chakra to produce anti-inflammatory and healing effects, calming our muscles, metabolism, and nervous system. These oils also alleviate digestive issues and nausea in the stomach region of the solar plexus.

Heart Chakra (Anahata) – "I Love"

Associated Colour: Green, pink

Associated Gemstone: Emerald, jade, peridot

Experience of the Self: Self-love, gratitude

The heart chakra, located in the middle of the chest, is linked to our capacity to give and accept love as well as endure heartache. An imbalanced heart chakra may lead to feelings of loneliness, grief, depression, and jealousy. Our De-Stress blend, consisting of Frankincense, Lavender, and Ylang Ylang essential oils, works in coordination with the heart chakra as they are familiar scents that alleviate emotional distress, heal feelings of anger and despair, and open our hearts to more profound compassion, empathy, and love.

Throat Chakra (Vishuddha) – "I Talk"

Associated Colour: Blue

Associated Gemstone: Blue topaz, sapphire, turquoise

Experience of the Self: Loyalty, trustworthiness, affection, care

The throat chakra gives voice to our inner selves, allowing us to express our thoughts, feelings, and beliefs clearly. An imbalanced throat chakra may lead to difficulty in communicating. Our Detox Blend, containing Cardamom and Geranium essential oils, dispels toxins from our thyroid glands and stimulates the glands to encourage more expression, making it easier to speak up.

Third Eye Chakra (Ajna) – "I See"

Associated Colour: Indigo

Associated Gemstone: Azurite, iolite

Experience of the Self: Perception of expression

Located between the eyes, the third eye chakra is regarded as the "eye of the soul," relating to our memories, imagination, wisdom, and dreams. It helps us see beyond what is visible to the naked eye and follow our intuition. An imbalanced third eye chakra may manifest physically, leading to headaches, eye strain, and other symptoms.

How to Use Essential Oils for Chakras

All right, folks! So now that you've got the lowdown on which essential oils are buddies with each chakra, you're probably thinking, "How the heck do I use these things?" Fear not, my dear friends! Here are some legit ways to make use of those magical oils:


Aromatherapy is a simple and effective method of using essential oils to balance your chakras. You can simply add a few drops of the appropriate essential oil to a diffuser and inhale the fragrance.

Topical Application

Topical application is another way to use essential oils for chakras. To massage the skin surrounding the relevant chakra, combine a few drops of the essential oil with a carrier oil.


Putting a few drops of essential oils in your bathwater is also a great way to use them for chakra balancing. As you soak in the bath, the essential oils will be absorbed into your skin and help to balance your chakras.

Chakras and Mental Health

In addition to their presence in historical practices, being mindful of our chakras can also be beneficial for maintaining positive mental health and overall holistic well-being. According to research by Philippa Sue Richardson, who possesses a doctorate in Metaphysical Sciences, an imbalance of the chakras can create instability in our mood, mental stability, and psychological well-being.

Let's face it, all of us have an experience with mental illness, whether we have seen someone we love struggle or have battled it ourselves. However, it is important not to hide in fear or shy away from mental health issues but to take action to heal our minds and bodies. 

Essential Oils Can Restore Balance

Richardson emphasizes using aromatherapy and essential oils to achieve optimal health and balance in our chakras to combat these imbalances. Essential oils are an excellent way to restore chakras balance because they have a powerful, practical impact. This is because our sense of smell can ignite solid and meaningful messages in our brains and significantly influence our moods and activity. 

We have all experienced this. The slightest hint of Lavender reminds me of my grandmother (Lavender was her favorite scent); this smell brings fond memories and feelings from my time spent with her. I invite you to think of a scent that evokes happy, joyful memories!

It is also vital to note that since each of the seven chakras has different locations, purposes, and meanings, there are also different essential oils for each. We believe in helping others achieve a holistic, healthy, and natural lifestyle. Even our packaging incorporates layers of meaning, from chakra colors to healing affirmations.
