Have you heard the word chakra, but haven’t quite figured out what it means?

We’d like to take a moment to shine a spotlight on your chakra system this morning, in hope to shed some light on energy medicine and the health of your body’s energetic meridians and the energy centers of your body. We’d also like to introduce some essential oil blends that may help balance each of your chakras for a greater sense of wellness and profound peace.

Just like your body’s organs make up your body’s physical system, your chakras are what comprise your body’s energetic system. Both are incredibly important in whole-body and whole-person wellness. This is why we like essential oils so much; they support both the physical and energetic picture of health.

We love Zen Lama World’s explanation of chakras and the the responsibilities of each of the 7 chakras that make up your energetic system: http://bit.ly/1fKOpvZ

We also think Gaiam’s article on the “7 Chakra Sisters” is an adorable introduction to your body’s energy centers: http://bit.ly/1DnpjzM

We feel that this knowledge is incredibly empowering, and we feel that empowerment is a key part of healing. That’s why we love essential oils; they give us the power to shift both energetic and physical obstacles in a gentle and soul-nourishing way.
