ESSENTIAL OILS & THE CHAKRAS
To balance the Third Eye Chakra (Ajna) (also known as the Brow Chakra) choose oils associated with higher consciousness that help bring spiritual clarity to the mind. Lavender to still an overactive mind, or rosemary to promote clear thinking, are most useful. The special aromas of jasmine myrrh, and neroli can also be chosen for their ability to generate spiritual clarity.
Lavender’s gentle nature makes it one of the safest essential oils (it has relatively no side effects) and is therefore often used in baby products. It is also found in the ingredients of many health products.
