The word chakra is described as an energy center, a spinning disc or wheel within the body. There are 7 primary chakras is in the body running vertically along the spine from the base of your sitz bones all the way up to the crown of your head.
Keeping these chakras in perfect alignment requires self-awareness and self-care. An ideal starting place would be to incorporate essential oils, diffusing during a yoga practice or meditation or using directly on pulse points of the body with proper dilution. Chakra Oil Roll Ons are great for this purpose as they are already diluted and ready to go for easy application and portability.
