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.
