What are chakras? Many of us have maybe only heard the word once and are not familiar with its meaning.
Chakras are referred to as far back as approximately 1000 B.C.
The word chakra means “wheel” in the sacred language of Hinduism and Buddhism. Eastern religions believe that we have seven energy centres called chakras.
Each chakra resembles a colored wheel. These wheels spin in a clockwise direction at different speeds, and are located at different locations of our body.
Essential oils help restore the balance of each chakra.
First Chakra (Muladhara)
This is the root chakra and is situated at the base of the spine.
It represents Tribal power. During the process of spiritual development we are challenged to retain those influences that form our roots or childhood that are positive and to get rid of the negative influences.

Second Chakra (Svadisthana)
The sacral chakra is situated in the lower abdomen and represents relationships and sexuality as well as creativity.
Third Chakra (Manipura)
The navel or solar plexus chakra is situated in the upper abdomen and represents personal power and self esteem.
Fourth Chakra (Anahata)
The heart chakra is situated above the heart in the centre of the chest and represents emotional power.
This chakra mediates between the body and the spirit and determines their health and strength.
The most powerful energy is love.
Fifth Chakra (Vishuddha)
The throat chakra is centred at the centre of the throat and represents power of will and self expression.
Sixth Chakra (Ajna)
The brow chakra (third eye) is situated at the forehead between the eyes and represents the power of the mind.
Seventh Chakra (Sahasrara)
The crown chakra is situated at the top of the head and is our spiritual connector to our spirituality.
Yoga also helps balance the seven energy centres or chakras of the body.
It is important to balance our physical, mental and emotional centres to lead a beautiful, happy and fulfilled life!
