Lift Your Mood and Help Balance Some of Your Chakras with Citrus Burst

Posted by Katie Zapotoczny on 18th Jun 2018

Our new line of essential oil blends includes the Citrus Burst full strength blend and Pre-Diluted Roll On. This bright, slightly spicy blend combines lemon, orange, grapefruit, styrax benzoin, lemongrass, and lime essential oils to help lift the mood and balance several of the energy centers- or chakras- within the body. 

So just what are chakras, and why would you want to balance them? Located in various parts of the body, from the base of the spine to the crown of the head, the seven main chakras can be thought of as "energy points or channels that give life and vitality" When the energy in a particular chakra is blocked, this blockage can manifest itself as a physical and/or emotional issue. However, when you bring the energy in your chakras back into balance, the physical and emotional issues can dissipate more easily.

Essential oils emanate different vibrational frequencies, just as the chakras do. So when an oil matches the natural frequency of a chakra, it "tunes" it when it's out of balance, helping to bring harmony to the body. 

Lemon essential oil has a fresh aroma that is energizing and uplifting. This essential oil can help to balance the fourth, or heart, chakra. As you might guess, this chakra relates to love for and between people; this chakra influences our ability to give and receive love in a healthy way. 

Orange oil has a cheerful, uplifting scent that can help bring balance to the second, or sacral, chakra as well as the heart chakra. Located just below the navel, this chakra is responsible for personal creativity, including artistic expression and creative problem solving. When this chakra is balanced, you experience feelings of wellness, pleasure, abundance, and joy. 

Grapefruit essential oil has a sweet, citrusy aroma that is uplifting, energizing, and invigorating without being overpowering. It is also a wonderful oil for helping to clear mental chatter and ease feelings of tension. In addition, grapefruit essential oil can help balance the third, or solar plexus, chakra (located above the navel). The solar plexus chakra relates to your sense of identity. When this chakra is balanced, you tend to feel comfortable in your own skin and confident without being arrogant. Balancing the solar plexus allows you to find the momentum you need to move forward and to take the steps necessary to reach your goals. However, imbalances can lead to low self-esteem or- the opposite- arrogance. You may also experience nervousness or a feeling of being stressed out. 

Styrax benzoin helps to open the first, or root, chakra. This chakra is all about our needs for survival and security; when the energy in the root chakra is balanced, you generally feel grounded and supported. Keeping this first chakra open is especially important, as blockages in lower chakras can lead to imbalances in other ones. With its calming, grounding properties, it's not surprising that benzoin can help keep the energy flowing freely through the root chakra. 

Lemongrass and lime essential oil both help to balance the solar plexus chakra. As noted above, this chakra is the source of your individual power and ability to make commitments. Lemongrass also aids in the release of regrets and resentment and promotes feelings of hope, optimism, and courage. 

Caution: Essential oils are highly concentrated and should be diluted with a carrier oil before applying them on the skin. Test on a small area, and wait at least 24 hours before applying to larger areas of the body.
