The Crown Chakra: Higher Connection

Well — we did it! We’ve journeyed through the chakras and gotten to the top! This week we have traveled from the bottom of our spine to the top of our head, discovering how to use aromatherapy to help bring your chakra into balance each of these energy centers. The powerful support they provide to our spirit gives us a greater sense of balance, from the inside out. 

Today we come to the 7th chakra – the crown chakra. Like a crown, the location of this chakra sits atop the head and — unlike a crown — extends infinitely upward and outward. It connects us to a higher state of consciousness and self-knowledge, so that we may reach our higher self. Our Higher Connection blend is designed to support this chakra with its warm, shimmering, heady scent, made up of the essential oils of Orange BloodFrankincense Carteri CO2Petitgrain, and Neroli.

 Your Crown Chakra

Of all the chakras, the crown chakra is the most difficult to explain. Think of this chakra as pure, conscious energy that connects you to the energy of the entire universe. If you can image the push and pull of two magnets, that invisible but clearly powerful tension, you can imagine your own conscious energy. Like a seed bursting open and stretching out toward the sun, our energy reaches upward to allow higher wisdom to flow downward, nourishing our spiritual growth.

The crown chakra opens our consciousness to higher states, beyond our own personal preoccupations. When we are able to shed ourselves of material fixations and our sense of ego, we can be filled with serenity and peace about life and our relationship to the universal energy that connects all of existence. [3]

The lavender chakra

plant therapy chakra essential oil blendsThe crown chakra is most commonly seen as being white, although it can also be depicted as deep purple or lavender.

The symbol of the Crown chakra is composed of a circle with a thousand petals. The circle is sometimes compared to the symbol of the full moon.

What happens when your crown chakra is blocked?

Woman sitting sad and stressedThe crown chakra is associated with the brain and the entire nervous system. [3] Because of this, blockage in this chakra can result in very subtle, systematic issues. Depression, mental fog, chronic fatigue, struggling to learn new concepts, and sleep disorders may present themselves.

You may have feelings of living inside your own head and being detached from the world around you. When we are disconnected at this chakra, we can experience false illusions and attachments, which can leave us feeling empty and unsatisfied inside. [2/ 4]

Balancing your crown chakra:

Use Elemi Essential Oil to help increase focus during meditation practicesMeditation is a powerful tool when healing the crown chakra. Immersion in the energy of the 7th chakra helps to transcend from living in the ordinary to a sense of the extraordinary. [2]Balance your meditation with living a life you love so you can remain rooted in your reality while also connecting to the cosmic energy above. [3] As we realize the interconnected nature of everything, we can begin to live with a deeper sense of gratitude. [4] We can also work on balancing the energy of the other chakras in order to keep the crown chakra healthy. [3]

Higher Connection supports your crown chakra by gently encouraging strength in our spiritual growth to know greater love and deeper purpose.

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. To apply this amazing aroma topically, dilute Higher Connection to 1% in your favorite carrier oil. You can anoint the area of your heart chakra, your chest, by massaging this intentionally in a clockwise direction.  

Try this DIY Pillow Spritz using Higher Connection to enjoy this divine aroma near the top of your head. Healing the crown chakra will invite in pure, radiant, and joyful energy, allowing connection with greater self-knowledge and our higher selves.

    1. If you have to use vodka, go for the highest proof you can find. We’d also recommend increasing the vodka to water ratio in the recipe.

  • I just received my roll on of this yesterday. It smells amazing! I am not sure about the chakra thing yet, but the smell is great :). Now I actually want the oil to diffuse.

  • I love all the chakra posts! This one especially I need to focus more on. Thank you for the great info and recipes! I’m going to make them soon!

  • I love the chakras, but I am pretty sure mine are all out of whack. However, I have an aversion to yoga, and meditation is hard for my ADHD self.
    I do love all the chakra blends, they do help to keep me centered and focus on what is important in life.
    Your chakra series was a great adventure. Thank you.

  • Thank you for these chakra posts. I had heard of them but really never understood what they were and their importance.

  • I really want to try this blend ! I have absolutely no doubt about how essentials oils can help with chakras balance.

  • I’ve just received my set of the roller bottles and am in love! I look forward to incorporating then into my self care practices!

  • Never try chakra before, always wonder how it works. Will give it a go next month during CAM 🙂

  • I’m excited about this set. I see that in some of the information there are yoga poses matched to the chakras and oils… is this set best used on an “as needed” basis or perhaps as a regular or semi-regular regimen? Perhaps working on a different chakra through yoga and oils each day over the course of a week every now and then? Any recommendations? Thanks in advance!
