Today I’m making a blend to strengthen Manipura chakra, also known as a Solar Plexus chakra, which is located around our waist area, about 2 fingers above the belly button, and its element is fire.
Manipura chakra is mainly associated with our will power, self-esteem, self-identity, confidence, ambitions, courage, feeling of guilt and shame. On a physical level it’s associated with our digestive system. When this chakra is out of alignment we may experience feeling of shame, helplessness, excessive control over things, manipulation, lack of confidence, lack of courage and the list goes on.
To strengthen manipura chakra we can use aromatherapy. Essential oils that are associated with this chakra are the ones that are empowering, helping to build confidence, courage and self-esteem and courage and to protect us from the influence of negative energy. These are my favorite oils: rosemary, cedarwood atlas, frankincense, juniper, pine, lemon, ginger, vetiver, hyssop, peppermint and helichrysum.
To make a blend you will need a dark glass empty bottle (15 ml), carrier oil, roller ball fitment, your choice of essential oils and creativity.
Personally I always use my intuition when it comes to choosing essential oil for using it on energy or subtle level. It always depends on how I feel emotionally at this specific moment, what kind of energy I have right now, my preferences at this time.
Today I’m using Ginger for its really empowering, energetic, warming and stimulating power. Also Hyssop for its also empowering and energy cleansing and protective properties (known to be a strong psychic cleanser), Grapefruit for its very uplifting, sweet aroma, which I find to be great to balance the blend and soften the sharpness of ginger, and Juniper for its slightly sweet, grounding and protective properties.
- Ginger – 3 drops
- Hyssop – 2 drops
- Grapefruit – 7 drops
- Juniper – 5 drops
- in 15 ml carrier oil
The blend turned out to be really empowering, stimulating, uplifting, energizing, mix of sweet and spicy notes, which are inspiring you to take action and builds up the confidence.
Have a good day,
