If you have an interest in natural healing and wellness, chances are you’ve come across chakras before. Which might have you wondering: What are they exactly?
Coming from Sanskrit, “chakra” is translated as “disk” and refers to an energy center in the body.
While many believe that there are a large number of chakras, most agree that there are 7 major chakras. These are:
- Root Chakra
- Sacral Chakra
- Solar Plexus Chakra
- Heart Chakra
- Throat Chakra
- Third Eye Chakra
- Crown Chakra
They move from the bottom (the root chakra) to the top (crown chakra) of your body.
Each of the major chakras has a different energy associated with them, and these energies can become unbalanced through a number of factors, which can lead to problems with physical and mental health.
While many remedies exist to help balance one’s chakras, essential oils have often been found to be one of the most effective.
