WHAT ARE CHAKRAS?

  • They are seven centers of spiritual power in the human body.
  • Understanding Chakras is a way to approach health and healing holistically. 
  • We should heal intentionally not passively.  
  • Focus your attention on resolving lower Chakras first and move up. 
  • Use the essential oils in various ways. The vibration of the oils will do its job because essential oils are intelligent.
