Chakras are spiritual energy centers in our bodies, and each of the seven chakras is associated with a specific energy and healing theme. Essential oils, flower essences, and other botanicals can work with these healing themes to bring us into balance and flow.
Stability. Rootedness. Security. Sustenance.
The first chakra is the seat of our connection with the earth, and it holds the energy of our survival needs. Balancing this chakra allows us to feel safe and at home in ourselves. We can let go of a scarcity mindset and live instead from a place of trust and abundance.
