It’s been awhile since I talked about aromatherapy which is hard to believe because it’s actually one of my favorite alternative therapies. “Aromatherapy is an alternative healing therapy that uses natural plant extracts called essential oils to promote health and well-being.” As a certified clinical aromatherapist, I’ve been using essential oils in my aromatherapy practice since 2000 through many uses. Some essential oils, such as Lavender, can be used directly on the body while others need to be diluted in another substance like a carrier oil. There are many benefits to incorporating essential oils into your daily practice. Aromatherapy can help ease stress, anxiety, depression, improve sleep and fight bacteria, fungus, viruses and inflammation when used on the skin.
One of the ways in which NUBODI uses essential oils is on the Chakras. While it is believed that there are 114 Chakras through out the body, those who work with the Chakras tend to focus on the main seven. The main seven are from bottom to top; Root Chakra, Sacral Chakra, Solar Plexus Chakra, Heart Chakra, Throat Chakra, Third Eye Chakra and Crown Chakra. “The seven chakras of the body are understood to be spinning discs of energy that should be open, aligned, and balanced for they have the vital task of absorbing our vital energy (prana) and redistributing it.”
Some essentials oils that can be used on each Chakra are as followed:
Root Chakra: Cedarwood, Frankinsense, Black Pepper, Patchouli, Spikenard, Vetiver and Sandalwood
Sacral Chakra: Ylang Ylang, Rose, Sweet Orange, Tangerine, Patchouli and Helichrysum
Solar Plexus: Sandalwood, Myrrh, Lemongrass, Ginger, Geranium, Mandarin, Juniper Berry
Heart Chakra: Rose, Jasmine, Melissa, Lavender, Rosewood, Rose Geranium
Throat Chakra: Blue Tansy, Eucalyptus, Rosemary, Peppermint, Frankincense, Cypress
Third Eye Chakra: Juniper Berry, Lavender, Clary Sage, Frankincense, German Chamomile
Crown Chakra: Lavender, Myrrh, Neroli, Spikenard, Vetiver, Sandalwood, Galbanum
Essential oils are powerful tools to use in healing as the benefits affect the mental, emotional, spiritual and the physical. There are many ways to use essential oils aromatically. “Essential oils enter the body primarily in three ways—applied to the skin, inhaled, or ingested. Within each of these, there are many different kinds of application methods. For example, you can apply essential oils topically using compresses, sprays, baths, or massaging them into the skin.”
