Essential Oils for the Heart Chakra
The Heart Chakra is the fourth of the seven chakras and is located at the center of the chest, in line with the heart. This chakra is also referred to as Anahata, which means “unhurt” or “unbeaten” in Sanskrit. The Heart Chakra is the center of love and compassion and reminds us of our spiritual connection to those around us. It is what influences our sense of love for ourselves and what helps us move through life with love. This chakra controls our compassion for others and helps us to feel connected to them.
When the Heart Chakra is balanced, we can exhibit unconditional love for others as well as ourselves. This balance allows us to live in harmony with those around us and forgive small transgressions more easily. We act with kindness and compassion that helps us to form and maintain healthy relationships. An open and balanced Heart Chakra makes us feel like we are part of something larger and encourages us to trust our hearts.
A blocked Heart Chakra can leave us feeling disconnected from others, causing us to isolate ourselves and exhibit antisocial behaviors. We may feel jealous of those around us and have difficulty forgiving and getting close to people. When the Heart Chakra is blocked, we may lose our sense of self-love and self-confidence, causing us to seek validation and positive affirmations from others. A blockage in the Heart Chakra can occur when we experience a difficult emotional situation or tragedy.
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 Heart Chakra.
