The first chakra is the root or base chakra. It’s located at the base of our spine. It relates to our survival, safety and responsibility. When you feel insecure or disconnected from your body, the root chakra is where you should focus your attention.
There are many oils that help open or balance the root chakra but my favorite is the blend On Guard from dōTERRA it’s perfect for our safety and survival as the protective blend. If your root chakra needs work, you may be feeling unsafe. On guard is known for boosting the immune system but it’s also great for emotions when we feel unprotected. It’s a blend of wild orange, clove, cinnamon, eucalyptus and rosemary. It’s warming because of the spices and uplifting because of the wild orange.
Red jasper is the ultimate stone for the root chakra and helps us connect to our bodies.
If you feel your root chakra is imbalanced but don’t have any oils or crystals, try connecting with the color red. You could try some red lense sunglasses, buy yourself some red flowers or wear a red shirt. Create a similar scent to On Guard by sticking clove buds in an orange (like Christmas!) Try journaling and writing about safety - what does it mean to you to feel safe? Not just physically but emotionally. #rootchakra #chakrahealing #crystalhealing #essentialoils #selfcare #selflove
