Energetics, Emotions and Chakras
7th Chakra – Mental, Physical, Emotional and Spiritual
The emotional roots are often associated with distrust of self or others, guilt and shame. This can be released with the assistance of Tea Tree. In the centre of our bodies, are the 7 chakras that our inner- body energy flows through. The oil will actually expand all the chakras and then align them with the Crown Chakra.
The Crown Chakra is the highest and symbolizes the ability to be connected spiritually. This chakra represents inner and outer beauty. The location is magically on top of your head.
The corresponding chakra colours are yellow and blue. Yellow represents our Solar Plexus Chakra and the location is upper abdomen in your stomach. This affects you worth, confidence and esteem. Blue is the Throat Chakra and symbolizes communications and self-expressions. It signifies trust and keeping secrets.
