The Sacral Chakra: Joyful Creation

Yesterday, we took a look into how the 1st chakra, also called the Root Chakra, affects our sense of security and feelings of being grounded. Now let’s move upwards from the base of our spine to the point on our lower abdomen, an inch or two under the belly button. This is where the 2nd chakra resides – the Sacral Chakra – and we can encourage balance by using aromatherapy as a powerful support for your overall wellness in this area.

Today’s focus is our Joyful Creation blend. Designed to support your sacral chakra, Joyful Creation has a lushly layered and smooth floral scent that continues to unfold as it reaches the senses. It’s created using the essential oils and extracts of Coriander SeedGeranium BourbonOrange Sweet, and Jasmine Absolute.

Your sacral chakra

The sacral chakra represents your ability to experience emotional security, passion, and pleasure in creative expression and connection to others. It’s your center of passion and creative energy that propels you to enjoy doing the things you really love with joy and self-acceptance.

When all is well with your sacral chakra, we experience the healthy emotions of pleasure, gratification, intimacy, and desire. These positive feelings stimulate our sense of creativity, connection, growth, and change.

Sacral chakra color: Orange

The sacral chakra is represented by a saturated orange color. The rich orange of the second chakra is translucent and has a transparent quality.

The symbol of the sacral chakra is composed of a circle with six petals and a crescent moon.

The circle represents the elements of water. The moon crescent is colored in silver and symbolizes the connection of the energy the moon has with water. These symbols point to the close relationship between the phases of the moon and the fluctuations in the water and the emotions.

The symbol of the moon also relates to the feminine menstrual cycle that takes the same number of days to complete.

What happens when your sacral chakra is blocked or out of balance?

Trusting in yourself to explore your passions could be overtaken by feelings of insecurity, timidity, and guilt. You may experience attachment issues, misuse sexual energy, or cling to toxic relationships. [4] Physically, symptoms generally occur in the regions of the lower abdomen, back, and reproductive and digestive organs. Pain in these areas, abnormal bowel movements, and impotence may result from a blocked sacral chakra. [3] 

Unblocking (or balancing) your sacral chakra:

Unblocking the sacral chakra means unlocking your inner passions and releasing them to the world. You need to let go of negative emotional baggage, heal your unbalanced chakra and make space for positive, creative energy! [4]

Joyful Creation supports your sacral chakra by nurturing your spontaneity, passion, and expansion in the birth of new concepts. Enliven your senses with harmony, warmth, and enthusiasm in all of your relationships – including the relationship you have with yourself.

Having a healthy sacral chakra helps to clear energetic blocks related to relationships and creative expression. Joyful Creation will help you open up this energetic area of your body.

  • This blend sounds the loveliest out of all the Chakras to me. I’m hoping to get a bottle during customer appreciation month to try it out and try out this recipe. Thanks PT!

  • I’ve just received the Joyful Creation roll on from the special offer. I really like the way the roller bottle is sealed with tape to help prevent leakage during shipping. The graphics are beautiful! I like that the sticker on the top of the cap is the symbol for the Sacral Chakra. It smells just lovely, I am looking forward to using it! Thank you for all the ways you make our Plant Therapy experience special and memorable!

  • This is so informative. All the blogs in this series. I ordered the chakra set a treat and a half ago and breeder really knew how to use it. The booklet didnt really explain things. It felt like all the oils said they helped the same thing. I couldbt figure out go to tell when I needed to use one or the other. But this blog was very helpful. Thank you!

  • The jasmine and geranium are too much for me, but I need the therapeutic benefits. Anyone have success knocking the floral down a bit with other oils?

  • How fascinating ! I ordered this as well as other single oils separately. Love this info. I didn`t know about this. Makes sense now . Look forward to my order. Will def try this DIY medley. Thanks PT!

  • I purchased the roller set and Joyful Creation is one of my favorites. I put it on just a few minutes before seeing this blog post which I enjoyed reading. It was very informative.

  • Love this entry! A wonderful way to get to know your chakras and the oils that help unblock them and balance them. We use these a lot in our studio.

    1. I was wondering if you have a write up on the 3rd Chakra (Solar Plexis)? Thanks. I have been enjoying all the blogs and knowing how to use my chakra oils. And was wondering if PT could be made printable?

      1. Hi Sheri, we do have a printable that walks through the different chakras, the coordinated yoga poses and the affirmations. And here’s the post on the 3rd Chakra!
