The Seven Chakras Simplified


For a long time now, I’ve been reading about the seven Chakras and their meanings for our over all well being. I’ve compiled a tremendous amount of information.

In Sanskrit, the definition of the word Chakra is, a wheel like disc. These wheel like discs are the spinning energy centers that correspond to specific nerve bundles and major organs of the body. There are seven main chakras that run along your spine. They begin at the root, or base of your spine and extend up to the crown of your head. For you to function at your optimum best, your chakras need to stay open and balanced. If a Chakra becomes blocked or unbalanced, you may experience physical or emotional symptoms and distress related to a specific chakra.

I’ve simplified the definitions with corresponding beneficial colors and essential oils for each Chakra.

  1. Root Chakra is located at the base of your spine. This Chakra provides you with the foundation for life, and it helps you feel grounded and able to withstand challenges and is responsible for your sense of security and stability. Color: Red. Patchouli Essential Oil releases negative energies and promotes an overall grounded well being.

2. Sacral Chakra is located right below your belly button. This Chakra is responsible for your sexual and creative energy. It’s also linked to how you relate to your emotions and the emotions of others. Color: Orange. Orange Sweet Essential Oil soothes & balances the reproductive systems, emotional health, addictive behaviors, promoting creativity playfulness and a healthy libido.

3. Solar Plexus Chakras located in your stomach area. It’s responsible for healthy digestive function, self confidence, self-esteem and self control. Color: Yellow. Lemon Essential Oil is uplifting, energizing & supports healthy digestion, cleanses the liver, gallbladder and banishes negative energies.


4. Heart Chakra is located in the center of your chest and is all about our ability to love and show compassion. Color: Green. Eucalyptus Essential Oil balances immunity & relationships, opens the heart, chest & lungs allowing the flow of positive energy.


5. Throat Chakra is located in the throat’s vocal cords and is about our ability to communicate effectively. Color: Turquoise. Peppermint Essential Oil is invigorating & balances metabolism, stimulates self expression and open communication.


6. Third Eye Chakra is located between your eyes. This Chakra is responsible for intuition, self and situational awareness as well as imagination & creativity. Color: Dark Blue. Clary Sage Essential Oil balances emotional stability & clarity, awakening the third eye, promoting self & situational awareness.


7. Crown chakra is located at the top of your head. This Chakra represents your spiritual connection to yourself, your life’s purpose, to others & the Devine. Color: Purple. Lavender Essential Oil balances the mind, promotes unity, soul purpose, calmness & peace.


Lavender and Patchouli essential oils are universal for balancing and nourishing all seven Chakras. I’ve made a blend of both essential oils and use it for personal, daily use aromatherapy and self care products to keep my Chakras aligned and balanced. I find the blended essential oil scent truly a positive and calming one!
