The study and practice of yoga are incomplete without the knowledge of the seven chakras. Yoga practitioners spend all their lives understanding this complex topic and perfecting the art of aligning the seven chakras. In fact, one of the core subjects of Ayurveda, too, is learning to spin the chakras by altering your dietary intake.
Since the ever so controversial and psychoactive CBD already has so many benefits, it’s believed that CBD products can be used to activate the seven chakras in your body. Or can they? What’s the truth? Let’s find out.
In Sanskrit, cannabis is called sarva-rogini, which literally translates to ‘the curer of all diseases.’ And if Ayurveda says something is so, it’s basically the final word on the subject. Still, because it’s unwise to blindly trust 5,000-year-old scientific scripts, even though it has stood the test of time, let’s understand if and how CBD can influence the seven chakras in your body.
CBD amplifies your emotions and heightens self-awareness. It immediately lights up your mind at a subconscious level by affecting the CB1 and CB2 cell receptors inside your brain. Because of this rise in responsiveness, you’re bound to become more sensitive towards your spiritual self.
CBD stimulates the cells in your body and motivates them to heal faster and function well, which is similar to what the chakras stand for.
Additionally, the only way to open up the chakras is through meditation and inner peace. Since CBD increases focus and calms your nerves, it can actually be used to influence the seven chakras to properly align them.
The Seven Chakras in the Body
Chakra is a Sanskrit word for wheel. But in this context, chakras refer to the energy points in your body. While there are thought to be 114 chakras, there are only seven major ones that are located along your spine. So, when anybody talks about chakras, these are the ones they’re referring to.
According to the Ayurveda, the wheels in your body should remain aligned and spinning for you to lead a happy, healthy, and quality life. In essence, the chakras ensure your overall well-being.
Each chakra also has a specific color and the functions of the chakras can be influenced using gemstones and a combination of essential oils. But choosing the right oils can be time-consuming and exhausting for beginners. And that’s why we’ve created these Chakra Terre Balancing Roll-Ons that aim to assist you in finding your emotional and physical well-being. Here’s how.
Stone: Amethyst, clear quartz, diamond, selenite
Lavandin – Clarity,
Tangerine – Creativity,
Amyris – Perspective,
Clary Sage – Mental balance and reducing stress
Melissa – Coping with tension
Located at the top of your head, the crown chakra is known to radiate like the rays of the Sun. The word ‘sahasrara’ means ‘thousand-petaled lotus’ because the mind is considered to be the center of knowledge and spiritual light.
The crown chakra stands for awareness and intelligence, which is why the crown roller is made from those essential oils that help you eliminate the distractions and assist in maintaining a smooth flow of thoughts.
Stone: Purple fluorite, black obsidian, amethyst
Lavender – Clearing negative thoughts,
Cedarwood – Stimulating the hypothalamus,
Marjoram – Emotional cleansing,
Roman chamomile – Focusing and balancing
The third eye chakra is located in the center of your forehead. When it opens, you gain mental stability – a much-needed element for growth. Since ajna means ‘beyond wisdom,’ the roller possesses roman chamomile to help you perceive more than you otherwise would.
The perfect aromatherapy kit is incomplete without the use of lavender essential oil. Lavender relaxes and soothes you as well as helps you maintain a positive mental state. Since the cedarwood oil directly affects the hypothalamus, the roll-on helps you release the happy hormones, which promote overall emotional well-being. It also binds with the pineal gland, allowing you to release serotonin, which lets you feel calmer and sleep better.
Stone: Aquamarine, turquoise, lapis lazuli
Patchouli – Communication,
Hawaiian sandalwood – Compassion,
Rose – Fearlessness,
Jasmine – Open-mindedness,
Ylang ylang – Inner strength
The Sanskrit language places a lot of importance on respectful communication, which is why the throat chakra is one of the seven main chakras.
It’s located in your ‘kanth’ (throat) and dictates your communication with yourself and others. Each essential oil in the roll-on allows you to be ‘vishuddha’ (especially pure) when it comes to verbally conveying information or messages. Together, these essential oils make you courageous, thoughtful, and truthful towards others and yourself every time you use your words.
Stone: Jade, rose quartz, green calcite
Eucalyptus – Better respiratory system,
Tea tree – Being loving and caring,
Cardamom – Inner spiritual sense,
Raventsara – Immunity
Needless to say, the heart chakra is located right where your heart is. Since it’s at the center of your existence and is literally the source of life for your body, the essential oils in this roll-on help provide you with overall stability.
From aiding with shortness of breath to improving the immune system, the roll-on for your heart chakra truly makes you anahata (unbeaten).
Stone: Orange calcite, topaz, citrine
Anise – Protecting from negative energy,
Peppermint – Uplifting,
Ginger – Improving willpower,
Fennel – Stimulating digestive system
The solar plexus chakra is responsible for transmitting spiritual energy throughout your body. Since it’s situated behind the navel, the solar plexus chakra is regarded as the source of self-esteem, which is why it’s also referred to as manipura (city of jewels) in Sanskrit.
One of the primary objectives of the solar plexus chakra is to maintain the functions of your digestive system well. When your gut is healthy, you instantly become more immune to germs and bacteria.
When your solar plexus chakra opens, you begin to feel confident and more optimistic about yourself.
Stone: Citrine, coral, moonstone, carnelian
Wild orange – Abundance,
Grapefruit – Erasing negative cell-memory,
Tangerine – Relieving tension,
Bergamot – Expressing
Right below the solar plexus chakra resides the sacral chakra. Since ‘swadhisthana’ means ‘one’s own dwelling,’ the sacral chakra not only helps you become more accepting of the simple gifts in life but also of your own self.
It’s natural to spend most of your life disliking the way you are. But is it healthy? Not even a little bit. That’s why the sacral chakra roll-on allows you to eliminate the bad past and embrace what’s to come.
Stone: Bloodstone, tigers eye, fire agate
Spruce – Eliminating respiratory issues,
Frankincense – Calming and sedating,
Blue chamomile – Dealing with anxiety
The word ‘muladhara’ translates to ‘root of existence,’ which is why the root chakra is located at the base of the spine. It’s responsible for offering you a sense of security and safety.
It’s believed that most of the common respiratory problems such as asthma happen due to energy blockage in the root chakra. Therefore, the essential oils in the roll-on for the root chakra help in unblocking the energy channels to help your mind and body function better.
It takes the right knowledge of Ayurveda, yoga, essential oils, spirituality, and science to end up with a suitable CBD-infused product. Although it can be fun for some, it’s most definitely daunting for others to strike the correct balance of proportions. So, ditch the process and directly buy CBD roll-ons from our wide range of high-quality CBD products.
