If you've always wondered how to balance your chakras, but never knew how, you've been called to this article. Welcome.
We all crave balance and equilibrium in our lives and in our bodies. We can feel if something is off-kilter. Maybe you start making silly mistakes, or perhaps you're getting sick over and over again. Sometimes, you just can't shake that feeling that something just isn't right.
It's time to stop living a life of low-vibrations- being full of fear, anxiety, and sadness. When your chakras are in balance, your soul will feel free! Let's talk about a few scents that will help awaken & align your chakras so you can begin living a life of growth, positivity, and healing.
The root chakra is associated with roundedness and stability; think of the roots of a tree or flower. This chakra is located at the base of the spine. When it's in balance you'll feel a sense of confidence, loyalty, and courage. You know that feeling when it seems like you're in the right place at the right time, amongst the right people?
You feel "at home" in your literal home, your body, and your spirit. To achieve this balance, go for vetiver, patchouli, myrrh, frankincense, and Sandalwood scents. You could rub down your feet with essential oil or burn incense to help keep you grounded.
Have you ever woken up in the morning and felt amazing? It's hard to explain, but you're just having an "on" day. Your seasonal allergies disappeared and you're feeling healthier than ever. You have the energy and passion to do something creative- sing, dance, draw, whatever floats your boat.
All of your senses are heightened. When you hold your partner's hand you can feel the connectedness reverberate in your bones; this is a sign that your sacral chakra is activated. This chakra is connected with sexuality, sensuality, and health, as it's located in the pelvis.
The scents that are known to appease the sacral chakra are Sandalwood, Rose, and clary sage.
The solar plexus is located in the stomach, and is associated with feelings of confidence, intellectual abilities, and qualities that make a good leader. Sometimes we feel that burning instinct to follow our own path, make the life that we want, and come into our full potential.
We want our authentic self to shine through. If you're feeling like this chakra may be off balance, try our our Lemon incense cone. Citrus scents, cedarwood, juniper, and ginger will help the solar plexus find symmetry.
This chakra brings to mind exactly what you're thinking: love. It's not necessarily exclusively reserved for romantic love; it's an all-encompassing type of love.
What about compassion for all beings, feelings of peacefulness, forgiveness, acceptance of the self, and appreciation of beauty in the world? If you want to awaken your heart chakra, you'll enjoy Rose and Jasmine scents.
Are you able to communicate your authentic voice effectively? When you're able to vocalize your true intentions, thoughts, and feelings with ease, life feels a bit easier. Still, it's not all talk, talk, talk!
When your throat chakra is in sync with the universe, you'll be able to listen to others with more ease. Having open dialogue and communication will allow you to be true to yourself. You'll be able to express yourself more fully when your throat chakra is in alignment.
This chakra has an interesting duality; when aligned, it gives us the courage to speak our truth & heart, yet also provides us the wisdom of when to remain silent.
Try our Sandalwood scents to open your throat chakra.
When your third-eye is open, you'll feel more imaginative and intuitive. This is the chakra of wisdom and insight. Have you ever felt that you must follow your instinct? A message is communicated to you that you can feel deep inside your soul.
Your mind feels open to possibility. You know in your heart that you have to seek your personal truth. To open your third eye, try out cedarwood, rosemary, chamomile, and Sandalwood scents. You can smell it directly from an essential oil bottle, a diffuser, or one of our incense burners.
We all deeply desire a sense of "here-in-the-now", or "being present". When you're not concerned about the future or reliving past memories, you're in the moment. That's when you're living your best life- when you let yourself to just be.
It may take many lifetimes to activate your crown chakra, but once you do, you'll feel more spiritually connected and aware of your surroundings as well as yourself.
If you wish to feel more present, you can't go wrong with Lavender and Rose incense.
