Essential oils are powerful tools to be used in helping us to align the energy of the Solar Plexus chakra. Before starting using essential oils it’s essential to understand what Solar Plexus is about. This chakra basically represents the measure of a degree of control in our daily life; it also represents the vibration which aligns our consciousness to the feeling of knowing of our position in life.
The element of Solar Plexus is fire, it’s located just above the navel around our solar plexus area; and it’s also associated with our adrenal glands and pancreas. It’s all about self-identification. Solar Plexus represents our self-esteem, will power, self-identity, courage, control.
When it’s in alignment that’s when we feel we are in control of our lives, we have clear sense of direction and purpose in life, we have strong self esteem, sense of self-worth, we know when and how to surrender to life. Surrendering doesn’t mean to give up, but rather being in alignment with life. We also have good digestion, not just physical but also emotional and spiritual, ability to digest information we receive from the outside world.
Solar Plexus is also associated with our intuition. There is a saying like I feel it in my guts. It’s also a center where we receive psychic hooks and energy cords.
When this chakra is out of alignments we may feel shame, anger, being powerless, out of control, being a victim, feeling of being manipulated by others or by life or Universe, we may have control issues like being overly controlling, critical, digestive issues, nervousness, resistance.
From essential oils here we want to bring the energy which are good for digestive system, energy that helps us to be more centered, focused, to have better sense of direction and purpose, courage, to have stronger self-esteem and self worth, empowering essential oils.
Essential oils that have strong affinity with Solar Plexus chakra are aniseed, cardamom, tarragon, peppermint, lemon, grapefruit, cedarwood atlas and virginian, pine, juniper, frankincense, hyssop, helichrysum, roman chamomile, vetiver, ginger.
In general you can use any of the oils which have affinity with this chakra, and they will affect the energy and help to balance it. But also it’s essential here to pay attention to the physical condition (if you have any of the digestive issues) and have a look at your emotional side. What do you feel, what emotions do you experience on the level of Solar Plexus chakra.
For example, if you experience anger and have heartburn, bringing the energy of roman chamomile and peppermint can be beneficial. Roman chamomile helps to cool down the anger, it helps us to surrender to life, also it helps with digestion, physical, emotional and spiritual. Peppermint also helpful for digestion and it brings us to have more sense of clarity and direction that we need to take in life.
If, for example, you feel you’ve been manipulated by people or by Universe itself, it may be also related to psychic hooks or energy cords that you have, then bringing the energy of pine essential oil (especially if you’re an empathetic person) may help you to feel stronger energetically on order to defeat yourself, be strong enough not to allow other people to take advantage of you, not to allow yourself to be that much affected by the emotions of other people or energies around you. You can bring the energy of juniper essential oil which have energy clearing properties and it can give us this sense of self-worth and strength within you.
If you have control issues, if you’re overly controlling (on the bottom it relates to low self-esteem or self-worth issues), hyssop essential oil can bring us more clarity and better self-esteem; cedarwood atlas or ginger can help us to feel stronger.
To check the energy of your chakras you can do intuitive body scan or use pendulum. Using pendulum for reading chakras is very good option, it’s not only gives us the idea if the energy is aligned or not, but also it shows us where do we have a conflict if we have one.
Diffusing essential oils in a room is one of the best ways to benefit from the energy of essential oils in my opinion. Diffuse them during meditation, it’s very powerful, you can also apply them on your body, topically in a diluted form, apply on your wrists, neck, at the area of Solar Plexus chakra, to enjoy its aroma and benefit on emotional side and energetically.
Good idea is also to combine oils with minerals. They have their own beautiful energy and their ow consciousness. Citrine is very powerful, it’s my meditation crystal. Yellow aventurine is another my favorite stone, which I love to carry with me in a pocket.
Have a beautiful day,
