Chakras are wheel-like circles of energy that run along the center of your body from the base of your pelvis to the crown of your head. Each chakra contains attributes that connect to your physical and emotional self. The goal is to find balance in each chakra to feel balanced in life. Things that can cause an imbalance can be: stress, changes in life, guilt, emotional attachment, & detachment from life. Essential oils are one of the best ways to find balance. You will see each chakra listed below, as well as the excessive and deficient characteristics. Regardless of where you are in each chakra, these oils help to bring balance. You can diffuse the oil to find balance or rub it in the area of the chakra.
