Chakras are the energy centers of our bodies. When balanced, we experience physical, emotional, and spiritual harmony. When imbalanced, we can experience undesirable issues.
The Root Chakra (Sanskrit name Muladhara) is located at the base of the spine and the groin area and is associated with the color red. When balanced, we feel grounded, healthy, and have high physical energy. Alternatively, when the Root Chakra is out of balance we can experience mental fatigue and lack focus, feel restless, and have difficulty achieving goals.
There are many methods for balancing our chakras, including aromatherapy. To use, dilute a drop of essential oil with a carrier oil (oils like coconut, grapeseed, jojoba, almond, etc.) and gently massage in the area of the base of the spine. The following essential oils are helpful for balancing the Root Chakra:
