Using Essential Oils for Balancing Chakras; 5th Chakra or the Throat Chakra

If you missed part one, see it here; Essential Oils and Chakras Part One; Introduction to Using Essential Oils for Balancing the Chakras and Part Two; Using Essential Oils for Balancing Chakras; The Root Chakra ,and Part Three; The Sacral Chakra. , and Part Four; The Solar Plexus Chakra , and Part Five; The Heart Chakra .

The Fifth Chakra (Vishudha) or Throat Chakra;
The fifth chakra is also known as the throat chakra or in Sanskrit- Vishudha (which means ‘pure’) and relates to communication and divine will, creativity, self-expression and the search for truth. It is where we speak our truths and take responsibility for our words.
The corresponding body parts associated with the throat chakra are the throat and neck, esophagus, mouth, teeth, upper lungs and respiratory system, ears, thyroid and parathyroid glands. The throat chakra also corresponds with the element of ether.
The corresponding colors associated with the throat chakra are blue, and sky blue. Blue symbolizes inspiration, devotion, infinity and religious goals, and the color blue also produces a calm and peaceful feeling.
The throat chakra enables us to communicate our thoughts and feelings, and is directly connected to the ability to express inner creativity. Both our teaching and learning are affected by the balance of the throat chakra. A strong throat chakra encourages leadership, the spirit of truth and listening to one’s intuition.

essential oil recipes for new beginnings

Here we are at the beginning of a new year. I love new beginnings. It’s like a fresh start; a way to press the re-start button on a whole new life. We have the chance to put those things behind us that no longer work for us, or are unhealthy, or cause us negativity in our lives. Whoo hoo!

Out with the old, in with the new. I am ready.

So, with that in mind, I’ve put together a few essential oil recipes for new beginnings in our lives. A fresh start if you will.

Essential oil recipe for new beginnings:

The first essential oil recipe for new beginnings has to do with an over-all fresh blend to give us that ‘breath of fresh air’ so to speak, clearing out the old negative stuff and inhaling a clean, new start. I started with citrus oils of course, as they are so great for an uplifting, and happy feeling. Then added a bit of lavender for a super clean and lovely balance. Next  is spearmint for a minty freshness and followed up with juniper, Atlas cedarwood and cypress.

Try this blend for your new year-

  • 7 drops grapefruit
  • 4 drops lemon
  • 4 drops tangerine
  • 4 drops lavender
  • 2 drops spearmint or peppermint
  • 3 drops juniper
  • 4 drops Atlas cedarwood
  • 3 drops cypress

This blend can be added to many different things depending on how you want to use it.

For a body re-fresher or spritzer add 20 drops of this blend to 4 ounces of water with a splash of vodka, shake and use anytime.

For a anointing oil or perfume type, use 12 drops of this blend mixed with 1 ounce of sweet almond oil, coconut oil, jojoba oil, grapeseed oil or similar.

For a bath salt or body salt scrub, add 20 drops of the blend to 4 ounces of dead sea salts and 1-2 oz. of jojoba, sweet almond, olive, grapeseed or similar oil, mix and use as an exfoliating body scrub or soaking bath salts.

For a take-with-you-to-go style inhaler for freshness on the go, put about 25 drops or so of this blend in a small dark glass bottle, or you can make your own aromatherapy inhaler. You can find inhalers for pretty inexpensive all over the internet. Here’s a few places:

Aromatherapy Inhaler – Plastic, Pack of 4 (w/caps & wicks)-These plastic inhalers are convenient and portable. Place a few drops of your favorite Essential Oil or Aromatherapy Blend on the wick, slip it into the base and cover. To use, simply remove the top and inhale.

List of Essential Oils for Specific Emotions

List of Emotions and What Kind of Essential Oils to Use to Either Enhance or Subdue Them

Emotions are part of who we are as humans. We are emotional beings. And many of our imbalances and things that make us sick are caused from emotional imbalances. In other words, our emotions can make us sick.

First things first, if you’ve never used essential oils before, read a primer I wrote on essential oils, what they are and the difference between therapeutic grade and most “on the market” essential oils called “Many Helpful Suggestions on Uses of Essential Oils” before delving into this article, it will save you lots of questions.

More and more these days, plants are finding a medicinal purpose in our lives, people like natural cures rather than subjecting themselves to harsh man-made chemicals and pills. Essential oils are natural gifts we have access to that can aid our recoveries and help to bring holistic balance and well-being into our lives. Use this list wisely, and note whenever you are feeling these emotions to add some of the corresponding essential oils into your day, you will definitely feel better!

Anger

Everyone feels anger at times in their lives, sometimes it helps to count to ten, but if you are feeling angry for an extended period of time, this can be very detrimental to your health. If you can’t get professional help, try using the following essential oils either in a diffuser in your home, work space, or carry a hankie with a few drops of one or more of the following essential oils on it: Bergamot, Jasmine, Lemon, Neroli, Orange, Patchouli, Petitgrain, Roman Chamomile, Rose, Vetiver, and Ylang Ylang.

More and more these days, plants are finding a medicinal purpose in our lives, people like natural cures rather than subjecting themselves to harsh man-made chemicals and pills, also keep in mind that around 30% of the ingredients that are added in conventional medicine are extracted from natural resources like plants and herbs. Holistic remedies are becoming more commonplace in the medical field and even many scientists after years of testing are concluding that alternative medicine is making headway as a tool in the “every-man’s preventative medicine chest”.

Anxiety, stress and depression are almost at record levels in our country, who knows if it’s because of the economy, the stressful atmospheres and workplaces we subject ourselves to, or even home-life? Most people don’t think about it, but our diets, especially an excess of sugar, sugar substitutes, coffee, alcohol and/or junk foods can add to imbalances in our mental and physical states of being. No matter the cause, there is hope…and without resorting to dangerous synthetic drugs. Anxiety, stress and depression can have real life consequences and devastating effects on our spirits, minds and bodies that affect not only the entire scope of our lives, but those around us as well.

Can Essential Oils Help with Depression & Anxiety? Using Aromatherapy as a Mood Regulator

—–> Before using any essential oils, please read this helpful primer: Uses of Essential Oils:

Originally from my Yahoo repertoire, I decided to add this gem to my blog. Happy new year!Essential Oils for the Different Types of Skin

With this article, I’ll show you how it’s possible to employ pure therapeutic grade essential oils to help ease depression and lessen anxiety, simply and naturally.

First things first, if you’ve never used essential oils before, read a primer I wrote on essential oils, what they are and the difference between therapeutic grade and most “on the market” essential oils called “Many Helpful Suggestions on Uses of Essential Oils” before delving into this article, it will save you lots of questions. (Since my links/articles are still orphaned and looking for homes, for the purposes of safety, and if you are not familiar with essential oils please read Ananda Apothecary’s beginner’s guides to aromatherapy here before using any essential oils. 🙂

More and more these days, plants are finding a medicinal purpose in our lives, people like natural cures rather than subjecting themselves to harsh man-made chemicals and pills.

A depressed emotional state is a common reason for using complementary and alternative therapies today. A wide range of psychological, physical, and energetic issues can lead to feelings of depression and a pervasive outlook of negativity. Moreover, once in a state of depression, patterns can arise that make relief all the more difficult to find. The use of essential oils for uplifting the psyche and spirit is becoming more widespread because of the oils’ broad and dramatic effects. While the oils themselves may not directly affect the underlying cause of depression, they may help individuals break free from depressive cycles – they may provide the impetus to ‘get off the couch’, so to speak, and begin creating long lasting change.”Ananda Apothecary

Can essential oils help with anxiety?

The short answer is yes. The how and why are a bit more scientific, but suffice to say that it’s true what they say, “your nose knows”. You’ve definitely experienced this before. A good example would be smelling a freshly baked apple pie and remembering Grandma’s house in the country when you were just a kid. That’s your limbic system at work. Basically, your sense of smell is the shortest and quickest way into your brain, including your memory banks, through the limbic system ( which is the seat of the emotional center and is partly responsible for our our emotional reaction to something, our fight or flight response, our hormonal secretions, motivation, pain reflex and our mood fluctuations). Some essential oils have thousands of chemicals contained within a tiny drop, and some have only a few, but they all have purposes, and can all cause strong reactions when inhaled or used on the skin.

Can essential oils help with depression?

Again, the short answer is yes they can, in the same way they can help with anxiety, essential oils can also aid in reducing melancholy and heightening happy feelings or uplifting your mood by pure science of chemistry. Just knowing what chemicals to use, and that they are pure therapeutic grade essential oils can really ‘make or break’ the deal. Essential oils are really just natural science by God, given to us as “medicine” whether it be for the body (physical), mind (mental), or spirit (emotional and spiritual).

The best therapeutic grade essential oils to use to lift your spirits and put you in a better mood are as follows:

Essential Oils that are Antidepressant mood regulators:

Rose or rose otto – the best ‘heart opener’, aids with joy, uplifts and restores balance
Orange– any citrus oil uplifts and brightens your mood, they are ‘sun in a bottle’, grounding, nourishing, energizing
Bergamot – relaxes nerves and refreshes the spirit
Geranium – like rose, wonderful for work of the heart
Mandarin – another citrus uplifter, but with a more mellow property, works wonders on children
Lemon – super sunshine in a bottle, very uplifting, grounding, nourishing, energizing
Neroli (orange blossom) – comforts the mind and heart, natural tranquillizer for shock, depression or anxiety
Chamomiles – grounding and uplifting

Essential Oils for Anxiety or Stress

Lavender – calming, regenerating, balancing
Chamomiles – remarkable calming effects
Clary Sage – calming, relaxing, balancing,
Geranium – calming, balancing, protecting
Rose or rose otto
Mandarin – wonderful for calming children too
Lemon – refreshing and gentle calming
Bergamot- relaxing, uplifting
Vetiver -very calming, centering, and stabilizing
Neroli– nourishing to spirit and soul, cooling and calming
Palmarosa – calming and uplifting nerves, reduces anxiety
Sweet Marjoram – sedative and toning, immediate calming effect
Frankincense– warming, calming, quieting, awakens the spirit, centering, meditative, new enlightenment of self and encourages an unconditional love
Coriander- healing and anti-inflammatory, aids feelings of security to anyone who is not grounded and calms the spirit

How to use these essential oils for anxiety or depression

There are a variety of ways you can use these essential oils to aid in mood regulation. Two being: INHALATION AND TOPICAL APPLICATION.

Diffusers-Inhalation

One of the simplest ways is to use a diffuser for your personal or work space. Most are quite simple to use either by adding water and a few drops of essential oil, and plugging it in, or by a candle warming the water and oil mixture. You can find them just about anywhere now, from the grocery store to ebay and Amazon , aromatherapy stores or specialty stores. Click Here To Visit Diffuser World.

NebulizersInhalation

There are also nebulizers which are even better at dispersing essential oils into the air.

Car DiffusersInhalation

These plug right into your cigarette lighter or extra power source in your dash or console of your car. Take the fresh scent with you and brighten up your day instead of complaining about traffic. After diffusing something like lemon or peppermint in your car I guarantee you’ll spark right up and have a smile on your face.

Topical Application:

Best used by adding essential oils to an unscented lotion, aloe vera gel or diluted with an oil, for example, getting a massage.

Straight application:

Although this method is not recommended often as essential oils are potent and may be too strong for some people. Many are sensitive to the extreme potency of a therapeutic grade essential oil, but if you’re feeling brave and have used essential oils before (especially Lavender, one of the safest out there) then feel free to use a couple drops in your palms and rub together to release the scent. You can dab it under your nose, rub a couple drops into your wrists or the like. I would only try this with the following oils:

Lavender, Rose, Neroli, Geranium, Lemon, Mandarin, (almost any citrus oil, but beware citrus oils are phototoxic; meaning don’t wear them in the sun)

Massage:

There is so much I could say about the wonders of massage…but I don’t want to lose you so I’ll just say that if you can get one, DO! They are the best preventative medicine available to us and with the use of essential oils added to your massage lotion, gel or oil, you won’t believe the miracles that can happen. Just ask any Massage Therapist or “Raindrop Technique Therapist” and you’ll get an ear-full of how magical a massage can be. If your loved one is giving the loving massage, use a MAXIMUM of, or no more than 8-10 drops per oz. as essential oils are very potent. It’s better to use less and add more if needed. Just choose your carrier oil, gel or unscented lotion and add your choice of therapeutic grade essential oils and mix well.

Remember, it’s always better to try than to give up, so smile and know someone is thinking of you and wishes the very best for your health and well-being!
