Take an essential oils journey to for Foundational Chakra Balancing with yoga. Yoga has healing properties for the mind and body. Yoga improves strength, balance, and flexibility. Yoga helps ease pains in the body like back pain. It benefits our heart health. It relaxes you to help you sleep better. Yoga is beneficial for the mental health and emotions. Yoga teaches us to breathe deeply and take control of our breath. Yoga slows the breath down to release stress on the nervous system.
We can maximize these healing properties when we combine yoga practice with essential oils. Yoga and Essential Oils can be combined together for some strong emotional and physical benefits. When we apply essential oils to skin, diffuse them, or drink them, we are taking the plants natural defense system for our own benefit. Aromatically, essential oils can directly affect the airways. It can affect our moods and emotions, and the aroma can purify the air. When used topically, essential oils can be applied directly to a specific area. When oils are ingested, they can directly support the digestive system and our immune system. So, use essential oils in yoga class to create optimal health.
Understanding the Chakras is another way to find balance and healing. The chakras are energy points in our body that are connected to bodily functions and emotion. We can have too much or too little energy into each chakra which will form an imbalance. Tools like yoga and essential oils can help us find balance. The first three Chakras, Muladhara or Root, Svadhishtana or Sacral, and Manipura or Solar Plexus chakras make up our foundations. They are connected to our roots, emotions, and power and control. Foundational Chakra Balancing will help us to move into the upper chakras and further our development.

Let’s have a Foundational Chakra Balancing Yoga and Essential Oil experience! Start by placing a drop of Cassia oil (paid link) in a cup of water or water bottle. Cassia is a hot oil so make sure it is properly diluted- you do not need a lot of oil. Cassia supports a healthy response to pathogenic exposure. It inspires self assurance in discovering your innate talents, therefore helping to balance the sacral chakra. Place a few drops of Clove Bud Oil (paid link) on your mat or in a diffuser close by. Clove cleanses, inspires natural playfulness, and clears the head for rational thought, again for sacral chakra balancing.
