Today I went to my very first “Cooking with Essential Oils” class taught by my friend Alex. We tried out a couple essential oils and sampled a couple recipes (and also looked up a couple MORE recipes online) and then, somehow, got onto the subject on Chakra aligning with essential oils which Alex seemed way more interested in teaching (which I also, in turn, was way more interested in learning – so it worked out!)
My friend Sarah used to talk about “Chakra’s” all the time – so I was interested to learn how I could use essential oils (which I use anyway) to basically “chill out” and basically focus my focus (my focus lacks focus) …
I know this ALL sounds totally bizarre but bear with me a sec here! Basically, your chakras are energy points in your subtle body (as opposed to your physical body) – think “it’s in your head” (but, just because it’s in your head doesn’t mean it’s not real – just ask Dumbledore.) There are seven chakras (seems as though most of the religions agree on this – at least – 7 MAIN chakras) – crown, third eye, throat, heart, solar plexus/navel, sacral and root. Each chakra connects with a section in the body except the crown chakra which is pure consciousness (or your “higher power” whatever that may be.)
The book that Alex referred to in her class today was called “Chakra Wellness Made Simple” by Connie Boucher. It was geared towards users of the DoTERRA brand essential oils but could be used with any I’d imagine.
I definitely felt more relaxed after the class – not sure if I felt more “clarity” or whatever I was aiming for though. But, the more I learn – the more I’ll understand! I already use several essential oils on a daily basis – OnGuard (or Thieves), Peppermint, Lemon and Breathe.
Do you use essential oils? Which ones?
