Lavender essential oil is widely known as the “universal oil” and the “all purpose oil,” due to its array of medical benefits and chakra balancing characteristics. The name lavender is derived from the Latin word lavare, meaning, “to wash,” as the oil is anti-bacterial and has a nice and clean aroma.

     A French chemist by the name Rene-Maurice Gattefosse was working in a factory and had burned his arm, with nothing around him but a large tub of lavender essential oil. By reflex, he dove his arm into the tub and discovered how relieving the oil felt on his burnt skin. Soon enough, he had also realized how quickly his burn had healed, without any scarring left behind. Gattefosse then started experimenting with not only lavender, but also all different essential oils and their therapeutic properties.

     Lavender essential oil promotes the opening of the heart and stimulation of the crown chakra, which when stimulated, one is more open to recieving the world and its wonderful gifts it has to offer. Regular use of 100% Pure Lavender Essential Oil will provide for optimal health and well-being.

Heart Chakra!

The fourth spiraling energy center in our being is the Heart Chakra. The Sanskrit name for this chakra is “Anahata,” which means, “stillness.” The heart chakra is in the middle of all the chakras and is our main emotional center. When the heart chakra is balanced, it is able to help propel our emotional development by recognizing that love is the most powerful energy we have and by learning how to embrace this energy.

 

Location

The Heart Chakra is located in our heart center, which is in the center of the chest and just between the shoulder blades, slightly above our physical heart. Since this energy center is located in the middle of the other chakras, the higher and lower chakra energies are integrated at the heart chakra. Therefore, when the fourth chakra is balanced, one will have more compassionate and positive emotional perceptions through all other chakras, allowing a great improvement in the quality of life.

 

Governs

The Heart Chakra governs our ability to unconditionally love. With this ability, we are able to accept and appreciate any challenges we are faced with, and understand that they will contribute to our conscious evolution. As the first three chakras focus on our loving connection with the physical world, the fourth chakra focuses on our loving connection with ourselves based on our feelings of our own thoughts and emotions. The most physical and spiritual act to improve our feelings about thoughts and emotions is forgiveness. Forgiveness is one of the most effective ways to love and nurture yourself. By forgiving yourself, as well as others for the past or the present, emotional healing begins. Attaching to emotional wounds involving others may only hurt ourselves, as they are our personal emotions, therefore, forgiveness and release of the attachments to these emotional wounds will allow us to be free of the pain and suffering by acting out divine love and compassion!

Solar Plexus Chakra!

The third spiraling energy center in our being is the Solar Plexus Chakra. The Sanskrit name for this chakra is “Manipura,” which means, “lustrous gem.” The solar plexus chakra relates to our personal fire connecting and relating with the world around us. The third chakra is our power center that produces the fire in the belly, the magnetic core of personality and ego.

 

Location

The third chakra is located in the area of the solar plexus, which sits between the naval and digestive system. This energy flows through vital organs, such as the liver and gallbladder. When there is an imbalance in the third chakra, one will most likely experience digestive disorders and/or eating disorders. The solar plexus senses include sight and cognitive thinking, which is why the phrase “gut feeling” came about.

 

Governs

The Solar Plexus Chakra regulates the feelings of self esteem, self respect, self discipline, ambition, and courage. When the solar plexus chakra becomes imbalanced, fears of rejection, criticism, obesity, and aging begin to kick in. A healthy amount of self esteem as well as our intuitive voice are developed in a well balanced solar plexus. Our intuitive voice provides guidance throughout life, and will be as strong as the solar plexus is balanced. This chakra also holds our intuition and independence, which allows us to take risks and flow with “gut feelings.” As we evolve into the feelings of self-empowerment, we must first shed the fears that block us from the realization of pure living beauty!

Sacral Chakra!

The second spiraling energy center in our being is the Sacral Chakra. The Sanskrit name for this chakra is “Svadhisthana,” which means, “dwelling place of the self.” The second chakra focuses on passion and emotional health and well being. A balanced sacral chakra will lead to ultimate communication with all other chakras.

 

Location

The sacral chakra is located in the lower abdomen, about an inch above the naval. Aches, pains, and tingles in the lower abdomen region are a sign of an imbalance in the sacral chakra. As soon as the emotional issue is resolved, the symptom will be relieved. The sacral chakra is associated with the reproductive organs, hips, sacrum, low back, and kidneys. It also is involved with all of the liquids in the body including, the circulation of blood, urine, menstruation, and tears.

 

Governs

The sacral chakra governs issues regarding interpersonal relationships involving passion, sexuality, and creativity. This chakra holds an inherent duality, also known as yin/yang. Understanding these dual energies is the key to attracting relationships, which help us to better understand ourselves. Likewise, these opposite energies allow us to make the choices of interacting with others whom support spiritual development and releasing relationships, which stunt personal growth.
