Aromatherapy is deeply connected to chakra healing, and using the two in concert with each other can be enormously beneficial.

Essential oils are not just a combination of alcohols, phenols, and terpenes. Each oil is also considered to have its own pranic—also called chi—energy, and frequency, and these silent sounds or vibrations make our chakras “sing” again, when, otherwise, they might remain silent or mute. Think of essential oils as tuning forks for your chakras.

Essential oils change our emotional profile and can help charge our energy centers, not just because their sweet smells charm our senses but also because their small molecules penetrate our blood-brain barrier—which otherwise keeps most everything from coming into contact with our neurons—to effortlessly target our brain on a biochemical level. It’s almost like chocolate for the nose.

Think of essential oils as tuning forks for your chakras.

Never forget the importance of following your nose. Just as we are drawn to certain flowers, colors, and even animals, we are also intrinsically connected to certain scents. The more you dive into the smells you are attracted to, the more clues you will get from your soul about what it craves, what serves you and what does not, and what you need more of to live in line with your purpose.

Experiment, play around, screw up (one day I accidentally covered myself in basil oil instead of sandalwood; I smelled like pizza all day)—and use whichever method ends up being best for you.

Many of the essential oils associated with each chakra overlap, so it may be a good idea to keep notes on which oils and blends you use for each one. Remember that people do react in different ways to essential oils, so it is important to use your intuition and try different blends.

By influencing our emotions through aromatherapy, we bring balance and wholeness back to our bodies’ energy centers, removing hidden blockages, fine-tuning our emotional and physical harmony, and connecting with the scents our souls crave on a deep, spiritual level.

So, oil up, soul searcher!
