Chakra Synergies for Self Care

Have you heard about Plant Therapy’s new Chakra Synergies Set?

Wondering what it’s all about? Wondering if it is for you or how to get started?

chakra set bottles in boxI am super excited about this set.

The intention of the Chakra Synergy line is to create simplicity and accessibility for those who wish to bring self-balancing practices into our self-care routines for a greater sense of wellbeing.

As with the mind and body, aromatherapy can provide powerful support for our spirit to support a greater sense of balance from the inside out.

So, let’s get started on learning more about Chakras!

How Chakras Impact Our Wellbeing

Chakras are subtle energy centers that intersect with our mind, body, and spirit. The major chakras are located along our spine in ascending order from base to crown. These chakras take in and transmit energy throughout our entire being.

When our chakras are in balance our natural energy flows smoothly, creating a sense of overall well-being. Stress, negative thinking, and wounds or traumas to any part of our being can disrupt this vital balance.

If you are new to the concept of chakras, how they impact our well-being, and how aromatherapy can help, I recommend you start by reading “So What Exactly is Subtle Aromatherapy” for an introduction to the basics.

This is just the beginning, of course. Like aromatherapy, energy work provides a vast path to develop and deepen your learning.  And, like other areas of aromatherapy, there are reputable thought leaders, teachers, and authors specific to subtle aromatherapy should you wish to study this synergy for the spirit.


How to Choose a Chakra Synergy for Your Needs

These synergies were created with the intention of gently supporting balance in each of the unique chakras.



Chakra: 1ST/ROOT

Location:  Base of Spine

Concerns:  Sense safety, security, and trust in the world, while feeling present and grounded and present in our body.




Chakra: 2ND/SACRAL

Location: Lower Abdomen

Concerns:  Ability to experience emotional security, passion, and pleasure in creative expression and connection to others.




 Chakra: 3rd /SOLAR PLEXUS

 Location: Solar Plexus

Concern: Sense of self-esteem, self-worth, self-respect, and self-confidence while retaining warmth and graciousness toward others.




Chakra: 4th/HEART

Concerns: Open to love, acceptance, forgiveness, and compassion for self and others





 Chakra: 5th/THROAT

 Chakra: 7th/CROWN

Location: Top of Head

Concerns: Sense of connection to a higher consciousness, higher purpose, and higher self.


How to Use Chakra Synergies

Because we are working with our subtle body — which houses our spirit, our core essence and our natural energy flow — we recommend you use these synergies at a much less intensity than used for the mind and body in order to resonate, rather than overwhelm, the subtle nature of our energy.


Use at 1 drop per teaspoon or 6 drops per ounce for a 1% dilution. Use a more subtle scent for direct inhalation, or room diffusion. A drop will do for passive diffusion.


Inhalation from the bottle is too overwhelming to the senses and subtle body. Simply add 1 drop to a tissue or cotton ball, or aromatherapy jewelry. You can also add 5 drops per 100 ml to your diffuser and run for a short period, or add 15 drops to your personal inhaler and breathe in gently. You may also choose to use these at half-strength if the scent is more strong than subtle depending on your proximity. The key is to get a gentle hint of the scent and not to overwhelm the senses.

Topical Application

Dilute to 1% in Jojoba or other carrier oil of your choice. You may wish to anoint your chakras. Anointing is an ancient practice across spiritual traditions in which an oil is applied with intention. It is often used for protection, to connect with the sacred, to empower, and to support wellness. You may wish to anoint your chakra, pulse points, or nearby areas of the body. For the first chakra, you may use the soles of the feet and/or touch behind the knees.


Add drops diluted to 1% to the hands and then anoint the chakra, pulse point, or body area desired. Then, bring the hands up to inhale and relax into a mindful balancing practice.

How to Combine Chakra Synergies with Mindfulness Techniques

When working with aromatherapy for the spirit, we can create an even more expansive experience when combined with mindfulness techniques such as those outlined below.  This synergy for the senses can help bring balance, harmony, and well-being within our whole being.

Please know there are no hard and fast rules, but rather an artful practice based on intention and intuition.  Allow yourself to unplug from your thinking mind, and tap into your inner wisdom.

To help you on your way, I have outlined some traditionally accepted and accessible suggestions as a starting point. The most important thing is to find what works for your unique needs at any given time.

Intention –

Setting a clear purpose and using your synergy with that purpose in mind. This is likely the most important aspect when using aromatherapy to bring balance to the subtle body.

Suggested Usage: direct inhalation


Replacing negative thoughts with positive thoughts. These are always stated in the present tense. And, you might want to consider aligning them with the concerns of the chakra with which you are working. For example, if you are working to bring balance to your 1st Chakra, you might like to affirm “I am safe.”

Suggested Usage: direct inhalation, anointing

Visualization –

 Using your mind’s eye to create a healing image on which to focus. You might choose to focus on a generally soothing and calming image, or you may wish to create a healing image specific to the chakra with which you are working.

Suggested Usage: diffusion, direct inhalation, anointing

Meditation – 

Calming the conscious mind to allow for inward introspection and higher information. This is when you can hear your spirit speak while you are soothing the mind and the body.

Suggested Usage: diffusion, direct inhalation, anointing

As you can see subtle aromatherapy is another approach to enhancing our wellbeing by bringing gentle support to the spirit. The synergies are meant to help make the practice of subtle aromatherapy accessible whether it is new to you, or you are an experienced practitioner.

The synergies themselves are created with the intention of resonating with each chakra in combination with the power of your conscious intention. They are not meant to simply apply to “fix a symptom,” but rather to support you in bringing self-balancing techniques into your self-care routines to enhance your overall well-being.

I hope this helps you on your way. Should you wish to explore the chakras and subtle aromatherapy more, you will find some reputable resources listed below. I wish you well on your wellness journey!

    1. Unfortunately, our Chakra synergies aren’t currently available in organic. But you can check out our collection of organic essential oils here!

  • After embarking on a season of healing for myself, it was wildly interrupted when my fit and fabulous husband had a series of strokes (we had no idea). Life was upended as we focused on him and his healing. And then my MIL had an accident and our focus moved there. Somewhere in the mix, I have sidelined my healing and my creative and self care time was shelved. I’m wondering if the Joyful Creation blend will help me “bloom” again. Also do you know if it or any other oils are particularly helpful for the adrenals by promoting relaxation? TX!

  • I really want this set for my birthday, but Im thinking I may splurge early and get it now! They just sound so wonderful!

  • I got the chakra set for my birthday, and have diffused it during yoga, but love all these other ideas! I’m going to have to go make some lotions so I can anoint each chakra as needed, and use them that way as well during yoga class.

  • Joyful Creation is such a beautiful, happy scent. I haven’t used it in a strict ‘self-help’ way yet, but tend to use it frequently just for the scent. It was my introduction to the Chakra oils, however Grounded Foundation and Self Manifestation seem to be my staples from the self help Chakra set. I purchased the collection a month ago, so am still getting acquainted with each blend slowly. Its probably time to move on and thoroughly explore the other oils, but it’s hard to not want to use these 3 oils daily. The booklet is very helpful in encouraging positive affirmations initially as the oil is being used. Kudos to the Plant Therapy Aromatherapists for creating such a wonderful collection!

    1. Christina this is an excellent question! I’ve found that some find topical more effective, while others prefer inhaling/diffusing. You’ll want to play around with it and see which is more effective for you

  • I have a colleague who liked True Expression, true enough he have issues with unable to voice his opinion to managers. I like Joyful Creation and lack of energy is dragging me down. For him JC is his third favourite while TE is my third favourite

  • I’m receiving a lot of positive feedback from my friends about this, so I will put this into my wish list/cart!

    1. We hope you love them! Each synergy is such a unique blend of oils, you’ll have to let us know what your favorite one is~ (Mine is Joyful Creation!)

  • I just received PT’s peel and sniff brochure for a few chakra blends with my last order. I LOVE these types of brochures that allow your customers to smell the oil blends before purchasing! The blends on the brochure were Joyful Creation, Loving Compassion, and True Expression. They are all lovely smelling blends, but I think True Expression resonated the most with me. Thank you, PT!!

    1. We were excited to be able to offer them! I’m glad to hear they were beneficial for you!

  • Hi Robin! It is recommended that you work with one chakra and chakra balancing oil at a time. Start with the one that seems to have the most pressing issues. One of the wonderful things about having the set is that we may experience different issues with different chakras at different times, so we are able to access the oils for self-balancing as needed at that time. Hope this helps!
