Essential oils and Chakras: The Third Eye Chakra

The sixth and penultimate chakra is the Third Eye Chakra. It is located in the middle of the forehead, just above the eyebrows. It is linked to the eyes, sensory and nervous system, and governs our reasoning and realisations.

A well-balanced third eye chakra could help with mental and emotional clarity and also develop a deeper spiritual awareness. Some essential oils and absolutes to help balance this chakra include:

1. Australian Sandalwood - Promotes deep relaxation and can be used to calm the mind and encourage a state which encourages a greater sense of awareness.

2. Lavender – Can be used for treating physical symptoms such as headaches, migraines, whilst also helping to calm the mind. This can be particularly valuable for those who suffer from anxiety, inability to make decisions and psychological stress.

3. Grapefruit - It has a characteristic sweet, citrusy and slightly bitter aroma with a mildly euphoric effect, uplifting the spirit and emotions.

4. Sweet Marjoram - This oil has a herbaceous, woody and slightly medicinal aroma. It has a warming and calming effect on the spirit and emotions.
