Your Root Chakra
When all is well with your root chakra, you’ll feel a sense of safety, security, and calmness. You’ll be bold and confident enough to tackle new challenges. This makes a properly aligned root chakra vital whenever you’re trying something new or pursuing a major life goal [3, 4].
What happens when your root chakra is out of balance?
Feeling threatened, panicked, or anxious? This could mean your root chakra is blocked! These unpleasant feelings can take over your thoughts and make you feel uncertain, and question yourself. [3, 5]. Physically, a blocked root chakra could cause a sore lower back, low energy levels, and cold extremities [6, 7].
Balancing your root chakra:
Grounded Foundations supports your root chakra by soothing, calming, and relaxing you when you’re feeling disconnected and upset. To use this blend, you can add to a personal inhaler or diffuser. Putting a drop or two on a tissue and wafting it away from your nose is another fantastic way to enjoy the benefits of this blend.
If you decide to use it topically, dilute Grounded Foundation to 1% in your favorite carrier oil. Anoint the backs of your knees or the bottoms of your feet by massaging this intentionally in a clockwise direction.
Having a healthy root chakra helps to create a sense of security, protection, and hope and supports feelings of trust and belonging . Grounded Foundation will help you open up this energetic area of your body.
