The Throat Chakra is the fifth chakra and it is located at the center of the base of the throat. This chakra is also referred to as Vishuddha, which means “especially pure” in Sanskrit. The lower chakras are more grounded and connected to the earth while the upper chakras are tied to spirituality and intellect. The Throat Chakra is believed to be the link and gateway between these two differing realms. This chakra is how we express our true selves to the world and turn our creative ideas into reality. The Throat Chakra helps us to live authentically and seek open and honest communication with others.
A balanced Throat Chakra helps us to communicate with clarity and speak fearlessly about our deepest thoughts and ideas. It also allows us to openly listen to and work to understand the people around us. This balance helps us to have the courage and self-confidence to express our needs and desires in life and to always trust our inner voice. When the Throat Chakra is strong we tend to choose our words carefully and speak kindly and truthfully, expecting the same in return.
When the Throat Chakra is blocked, we may doubt ourselves and feel misunderstood or judged by others. We can have difficulty translating our thoughts into words and remain silent rather than share our opinions and feelings. In contrast, a blocked Throat Chakra can also talk too much and say things that may not reflect our true beliefs. Both outcomes come from self-doubt and negative thoughts that can ruin our creative nature.
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 Throat Chakra.
Frankincense Essential Oil is believed to strengthen our spiritual connection and intuition which can bring our Throat Chakra back into balance. It helps to focus our intention while improving concentration and memory retention.
Geranium Essential Oil can help to restore our self-confidence and inner strength when our Throat Chakra is out of balance. It works to reduce stress and tension while improving cognitive function and balancing emotions.
Bergamot Essential Oil can help to strengthen the connection with our authentic inner self when a blocked Throat Chakra has us feeling distant and alone. It helps to uplift the mood and alleviate anxiety so that we have the joyful tranquility to speak our truth.
