Chakras are energy wheels that run through the center of your body, from the base of your spine to the top of your head. They are connective energy channels between our physical and spiritual self, working as psychic filters to balance our energy fields.
Each chakra is connected to emotional, physical and spiritual areas of your life. They absorb and filter all your thoughts, actions and behaviors. When we come into contact with negative energy throughout our day, our chakras can become clogged up. This may cause you to feel unconnected to yourself and others. You may begin to indulge in negative self talk or find it hard to speak out. These are a few signs that your chakras need a cleansing.
Below are some essential oil blends for chakras, which should help to get your wheels turning again!
