Chakras and Essential Oils

Chakras and Essential Oils

Thought I’d talk about Chakras this time as we have got some new fabulous laminated posters for sale.

The 7 Chakras are the energy centers in our body in which energy flows through.

Blocked energy in our Chakras can often lead to illness so it’s important to understand what each Chakra represents and what we can do to keep this energy flowing freely.

Root Chakra

The Root Chakra centres upon our core needs for survival, security and livelihood. When the Root Chakra is unbalanced, you will feel ungrounded, confused and lack the ability to move forward. Without a balanced Root Chakra, it is impossible to fully balance the other Chakras.
