Essential Oils for the Solar Plexus Chakra
The Solar Plexus Chakra is the third chakra and it is located in the abdomen, centered between the sternum and navel. This chakra is also known as Manipura, a Sanskrit word that means “lustrous gem”. The Solar Plexus Chakra is the center of our inner power and the place where our self-confidence manifests. It controls how we regulate our physical and mental energy and keeps us in a balanced, productive state. This chakra controls how we value ourselves and how we choose to spend our time, in our hobbies, careers, and relationships.
When the Solar Plexus Chakra is in balance, we experience a sense of inner peace that allows us to be comfortable in our own skin and fully trust our intuition. This strengthened trust and empowerment give us a boost of patience and motivation to reach all of our goals. A balanced Solar Plexus Chakra calms our demeanor while helping to wash away unnecessary worries and emotional blocks. We are able to be flexible and patient with others and trust ourselves to be good leaders and friends.
A blocked Solar Plexus Chakra can leave us stressed and overwhelmed by negative emotions. This blockage can cause an extreme shift in our self-image. We can be left feeling self-conscious and desperate for approval or arrogant and believing the world should revolve around us. An imbalance in the Solar Plexus Chakra can lead directly to an imbalance in our emotions and we may have difficulty understanding and controlling our feelings during this time.
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 Solar Plexus Chakra.
