When you’re choosing essential oils, chakra jewelry and crystal gemstones to use for energy work, you want to be sure you are only using those that are ethically sourced. The energy that goes into these tools is the energy you will get out of them.
What is a chakra?
Chakras are concentrations of energy, or a nerve plexus, in a particular area of the body. A plexus is where nerves intersect. These bundles of nerves that form a plexus to communicate information to your brain about pain, temperature, and pressure.
A good place to start with understanding the chakras is to think about the feelings that we can’t always explain. For example, that moment when your stomach feels filled with butterflies, or when you get all choked up, or when you go to say something but nothing comes out of your mouth, or when the excitement you feel pounds in your chest.
These feelings are experiences of energy. That energy comes from the Chakras.
Below are descriptions of the 7 chakras. If you are experiencing any issues within the anatomy or what it represents then a good way to balance your chakra is to wear the corresponding color. We offer the best chakra gemstone jewelry that is ethically sourced and a beautiful way to be mindful and to raise your energy vibration.
