- Opening the Heart Chakra with Essential Oils
Opening the Heart Chakra with Essential Oils
The heart chakra is known as the seat of unconditional love toward self and others, and the home of compassion, forgiveness, and self-acceptance. Mastering this chakra's energy allows us to develop emotionally, and to thrive in relationship, whether platonic, erotic, familial, or otherwise.
Imbalances in the Heart Chakra can cause a variety of symptoms, including heart diseases, breast cancer, pneumonia, lung cancer, asthma, grief, and difficulty giving and receiving love.
Bringing the Heart Chakra into Balance Rose Otto and Rose Absolute comfort and open a grieving heart. When closed through hurt or self-protection, Melissa, Neroli, and Ylang Ylang gently reopen the heart chakra. By healing the heart and embracing loving energy, we invite true self-acceptance through acceptance of our lovers, family, friends, and neighbors. We also preclude the diseases that result from heart chakra obstruction.
Healing and Restoring an Intimate Relationship that may be suffering from neglect reciprocally opens and heals the heart chakra. To nourish the spirit in love, set aside some sacred time devoted purely to loving. If you are healing, perhaps that means massage, physical closeness, the exchange of affirmative words or gifts. Maybe that means expressing appreciation and/or radical acceptance of a partner's "faults." Be with what is. Be love.
Here's a recipes for balancing and inspiring the heart chakra's energy. You can even try it as a natural perfume without the carrier oil ~ it's very nice :)
Deep Love Massage Blend
8 oz. Sweet Almond Oil
3 drops Neroli Essential Oil
2 drops Ylang Ylang Extra Essential Oil
Use the deep love blend to gently open the heart chakras to one another in a sacred space, to build trust and love with nurturing massage. The Encyclopedia of Aromatherapy by Chrissie Wildwood addresses more fully techniques of massage and aromatherapy, if you are interested. Enjoy! You are love itself.
