‘Chakra’ or the ‘wheel of energy’ is believed to be the energy center in the human body according to Hindu Vedas. Vital energy, called the ‘Prana’ in Sanskrit flows through 7 Chakras and balancing of the Chakras helps energy to flow in unison throughout the body. This can be achieved through meditation and yoga that is practiced with the aid of the right aroma for each of these Chakras. Let’s get a grip on the art of Chakra balancing and how you can do it with the help of the 7 Chakra Essential Oils.
What is Chakra Balancing and is it Beneficial?
Chakra Balancing is a kind of Vedic energy healing process that focuses on channeling energy into the seven chakras of the human body. Sometimes, these Chakras or energy channels get blocked and this leads to disturbances in the body’s natural processes.

Swadisthana Chakra Essential Oil
The Swadisthana Chakra or the Sacral Chakra relates to the autoimmune system, lower abdomen and other connected organs.

Doing the standing wide forward and sitting wide forward bend in a room filled with the relaxing aroma of the Swadisthana Chakra Essential Oil helps deal with emotional turmoil, procreation and desire.
Manipura Chakra Essential Oil
The Manipura Chakra, also called the Solar Plexus Chakra controls the effective functioning of the upper abdomen, gallbladder, liver, middle spine, kidney, adrenals, small intestines, and the stomach. An imbalanced Manipura Chakra could lead to ailments related to these organs. Balancing this chakra with the aid of the blissful aroma of Manipura Chakra Essential Oil while practicing the sun salutation, bow and boat yoga poses also helps deal with a sense of belongingness, mental understanding of emotions, and defines self-esteem in an individual.
Anahata Chakra Essential Oil
The Heart Chakra or the Anahata Chakra relates to the functioning of the heart, rib cage, blood, circulatory system, lungs, diaphragm, thymus gland, breasts, esophagus, shoulders, arms, and hands. If not balanced it is believed to aggravate issues of the thoracic spine, upper back, shoulder, heart, lungs and shallow breathing. Creating an ambience brought to life by the empowering fragrance of the Anahata Chakra Essential Oil while practicing Pranayamas (alternate nostril breathing), the camel pose, or the cobra pose helps balance this chakra influencing traits like trust, forgiveness, unconditional love, wisdom and compassion.
Visuddha Chakra Essential Oil

An imbalanced Visuddha Chakra could impact thyroid dysfunction, sore throat, stiff neck, mouth ulcers, gum or tooth problems, laryngitis, and hearing problems. Diffusing the soothing aroma of the Visuddha Chakra Essential Oil while practicing yoga poses such as the fish pose, cat stretch and bridge pose also helps with effective communication, creativity, faith, truthfulness, self-awareness, and expression.
Ajna Chakra Essential Oil
The Third-eye Chakra or the Ajna Chakra controls the functions of the brain, eyes, ears, nose, pituitary gland, pineal glands, and the neurological system. Any kind of imbalance in this Chakra amplifies headaches, poor sleep, eyestrain, learning disabilities, panic, depression, or spinal ailments. Practicing the child pose, eye exercises and meditation, in the aura manifested by the calming aroma of the Ajna Chakra Essential Oil helps deal with self-awareness, wisdom, intellect, clairvoyance, implementation of ideas, detachment, insight, understanding, and intuitive reasoning.
