Crown Chakra

Sahasrara

 

Crown chakra essential oils aid in balancing and opening the seventh chakra to liberate the spirit and establish a connection to the Divine.

Located at the top of the head, the crown chakra allows you to realize that everything is interconnected at a very fundamental level.

On the physical level, the crown chakra is associated with the cerebral cortex, the brain, and the skull.

On the emotional level, crown chakra imbalances may manifest as overwhelm, confusion, apathy, and isolation.

On the mental level, crown chakra imbalance may manifest as rigidity in perspective, over intellectualization, slow learning, and attachment to materialistic viewpoints.

On the spiritual level, crown chakra issues may show up as spiritual emergency, disconnection from witnessing, inability to understand deeper truth, spiritual bypass, and fragmentation.

Essential oils embody the frequencies and healing properties of plants. These frequencies and properties work on all levels of being.

The following are ten commonly used crown chakra essential oils:

Color

Frankincense

Frankincense, considered a Holy oil, is used for meditative contemplation, for achieving tranquil states of mind, and for attaining spiritual liberation.

The spiritual and psychological benefits of Frankincense have long been recognized by many cultures and spiritual traditions.

On a physical level, the oil of Frankincense helps with nervous system conditions.

Because of the high levels of sesquiterpenes, a type of molecules that have the ability to cross the blood-brain barrier, Frankincense may help to oxygenate the pineal and pituitary glands.

Sandalwood

Like Frankincense, Sandalwood is an ideal aid to meditation, spiritual contemplation, and prayer.

One of my favorite crown chakra essential oils, Sandalwood aids in quieting the mental chatter of the mind, allowing the ego/identity/person to remain in the background and spaciousness arise in the foreground.

It is in this spaciousness where clarity, liberation of spirit and soul arise. Timelessness, boundlessness, and deep unshakeable peace are experienced.

Helichrysum

Helichrysum, also known as Everlasting or Immortelle, has a very high spiritual frequency.

Because of its high frequency, the oil of Helichrysum is known to cut through deep psychological barriers and aid in accessing higher spiritual states and dimensions.

On a physical level, Helichrysum has been used to ease headaches and migraine pain.

Rose

Rose oil has the highest spiritual frequency of all essential oils. It enhances spiritual insight, transformation, bringing harmony to the body, mind, emotions and spirit.

The oil is gentle with a floral, rich and deep aroma. A gentle tonic for the spiritual heart, Rose enhances the frequencies of all cells and of the subtle body (the aura and the chakras).

Cedar

Cedarwood oil is exceptionally high in Sesquiterpenes. Research has shown that Sesquiterpenes increase oxygenation around the pituitary and pineal glands.

Cedarwood has been used in some Native Amercian traditions for enhancing communication with spirits and for bringing in the energy from the Universe.

The oil’s properties are strengthening and will help one to have more strenght and stamina on the spiritual path. On a physical level, Cedarwood essential oil is used as a general tonic for the body.

With its soft, woody and warm aroma, Cedarwood has calming properties and is used in yoga practice for centering and grounding.

Palo Santo

The oil of Palo Santo, also known as “Holy Wood”, has a very high spiritual frequency. The oil is used in rituals and shamanic ceremonies for healing, balancing, and opening to higher spiritual realms.

Palo Santo has also been used for centuries in rituals for purification, for protection, and for warding of evil spirits.
