The Crown Chakra is the seventh chakra and is located at the top of the head. This chakra is also referred to as Sahasrara, a Sanskrit word that means “a thousand petal lotus”. The Crown Chakra is the pathway to our inner self and spiritual understanding. This chakra is strongly connected to our minds and can influence cognitive functions such as memory and focus. It is also what helps us understand our place in the universe and how it is intrinsically connected to all living things.
When the Crown Chakra is balanced, we tend to have a more positive and uplifted outlook and can avoid negative emotions and stress. This state of balance allows us to be comfortable in our own skin and aware of our relationship with all parts of the world. When the Crown Chakra is strong, we are detached from our ego and able to live with a sense of purpose and confidence. It also helps us to form deeper connections with others and act more selflessly.
A blocked Crown Chakra can result in disconnection from our inner self as well as those we normally hold close. This blockage can cause us to feel a sense of loneliness and can make us lose sight of our purpose in life. This sort of disconnection can result in overwhelming emotions and difficulty thinking clearly. We may cling to our viewpoints without the ability to see others’ perspectives and withdraw from loved ones rather than connect with them.
Essential oils are great tools for supporting our physical, mental, and spiritual health and can help to improve the balance of all of our chakras. Here are a few essential oils that can help to unblock the Crown Chakra
