Weekly Essentials: Oils for Solar Plexus Chakras (Series)

The solar plexus is the third chakra and its name in Sanskirt is Manipura which means lustrous gem. Your solar plexus is located in the abdomen above your belly button up to the breastbone. The element of this plexus is fire with the color yellow, it is our source of personal power, which governs self-esteem, warrior energy, our transformations, and the ram as it's symbol.

Keep in mind there is limited research supporting the health benefits of essential oils, however, there are studies supporting the benefits of essential oils aiding in lessening stress and anxiety. Many people do claim and enjoy the benefits of using essential oils to balance their chakras. You can enjoy these benefits by experimenting yourself but keep in mind the safety precaution in using essential oils. Today we will focus on sacral Chakra essential oils in a series we will call oils for Chakras.

Essential oils Safety First

Do a patch test before using any essential oil and even before that consult with your doctor to make sure it won't interfere with any medication. You can do a patch test by diluting the essential oil in a carrier oil first and testing it on a small area of your body.

Consider those in your environment as well before diluting and using oils, as children and pets cannot tolerate certain oils or certain levels of oil exposure. Research is always useful before using any oils.

Crystals to Balance your Solar Plexus

  • Yellow Tiger’s Eye: aids in the flow of energy and in the dissolution of energetic blocks.

  • Amber: confidence and mental clarity. Use this stone if you’re struggling to make a decision.

  • Citrine: for self-esteem and brings positive energy to the entire body.

  • Yellow Tourmaline: “detox” stone on a list of solar plexus crystals. It’s all about getting rid of negativity (both in views of yourself and the past).

Solar Plexus Affirmations

Though our business focuses on cleaning, we all know the challenges that we can face when we are not mentally in the right place. I focus a lot on the mental health aspect as it impacts our mood and desire to do anything, which sometimes is cleaning our space. Cleaning our home, office, etc gives us a sense of control over our environment and can make us feel better. But, sometimes we need to get there and not sure how to, in our chakra series we will focus on different perspectives or ways of looking at what is going on with "us" mentally. Once we can pinpoint "our" problems we can find a solution. I hope these series are helpful and would love your feedback in the comments.
