Throat chakra is also known as Vishuddha chakra from the sanscrit. This energy center is located at our throat area between collar bones, the color is blue, the sound is HAM. The physical body parts that are associated here are shoulders, neck, throat, jaw and mouth, ears. Glands which are associated with this energy centers are thyroid and parathyroid.
When we talk about our throat chakra, we also talk about our communication, our purity, honesty, integrity, personal truth, sense of inner freedom, our ability to express ourselves, our creativity through the sound, language and communication.
As a center of communication it includes our ability to speak, to write and what is really important here is our ability to listen. To listen with understanding, without any judgement, to listen not only to others but also to listen to ourselves, to our personal needs, our personal inner truth. That is also our ability to listen what is beyond the veil, what is beyond these physical realms, to listen with our psychic senses. That is also a center of our clairaudience.
When this energy center is in it’s full alignment that is when we are self-expressive, we can communicate with clarity and understanding, we are good listeners, we are in alignment with our personal truth. We have this inner sense of independence and inner freedom.
When this energy center for some reason is falling out of it’s alignment that is when we may experience such issues like lying, gossiping, arrogance, judgement (towards others and towards ourselves), berating others and ourselves, difficulty in sustaining and maintaining healthy boundaries, inability to fully express ourselves, our personal needs and desires, excessive shyness, fear around communication and speaking in general, feeling of inner detachment from our personal truth, detachment from our purpose in life, detachment from our emotions, inhibited creativity.
So which essential oils are really good for this energy center? There are few oils which I personally find to be fantastic when it comes to working with our throat chakra. And most of these oils are, interestingly enough, helping us to be in alignment with our Higher Self, our personal truth, they are encouraging communication, self-expression, promoting creativity. These are:
- chamomile german and roman
- peppermint or spearmint (whole mint family)
- blue tansy
- laurel leaf
- palo santo
- spike lavender
How do you select your essential oil? I would personally encourage to spend some time and to smell every single essential oils, perhaps even meditate with oils, let yourself to feel these oils, notice what kind of feeling does it bring in you, do you like this oil, does it give you a plesant feeling or in some way it doesn’t seem to be attractive to you, does it resonate with your particular needs in that moment of time. We are all very different, our energy is different and it is changing constantly. Spending time with oils and letting yourself to completely sink into the energy of the oils will help you to intuitively know which oil is the best for you in that time.
How to use these oils for aligning your throat chakra.
One of the best ways is of course to use these oils during the meditation, especially when you practice meditation for chakra alignment. Use these oils on a background in diffuser or oil burner. You can also inhale the aroma during the day time. You can make yourself a roller ball blend and that is the one I really love to make. This is also one of the best and safest way to apply essential oils topically because it is already pre-diluted with carrier oil and the whole process of creating the roller ball blend is already like a healing itself.
The process of creating your blend can be considered as a healing. You can select one essential oil or several and really place intention which you want to achieve by making this blend. Play around with oils, see how they are communicating with each other, how they are combining, how their aromas are changing. How these aromatic molecules creating a dance between themselves and how they are changing its texture and energy and aroma. It’s very important to notice how does it make you feel like, is it pleasant, what emotions does it bring, is it calming or does it seem to be aligning you with your Higher Self or maybe your purpose or maybe its encouraging the communication or creativity within you.
Placing the intention into your blend is very important. You probably heard about the famous experiment with water, your thoughts have power, texture. When you’re placing right intention into your blend that is the energy you’re charging your blend with and that is the energy you will be transferring towards yourself. Charge it with love, joy, that extra creativity and have fun blending.
Have a wonderful day,
