The Finest Important Oils To Energize Your Photo voltaic Plexus Chakra | Patricia Bonnard


Energetic imbalances and health problems are related. When one chakra becomes unbalanced, so do the others.

But let’s just look at the essential oils of the solar plexus chakra for simplicity, but be aware that there are many nuances.

Essential oils, energy and healing

Essential oils have amazing biochemical and subtle properties that allow them to connect with the chakras and tone them up. The use of essential oils for energetic purposes is known as subtle aromatherapy.

Physical health problems are expressed in the human energy field, just as energetic imbalances tend to manifest as a condition or disease in the physical body.

Hence, the therapeutic properties of essential oils are also relevant to their use for energy healing. The two aspects of health and wellness are inextricably linked.

Because of the dual action of essential oils, they are naturally integrated.

This means that they act as a facilitating bridge between subtle and biochemical (clinical) modalities and can holistically promote more balance, well-being and healing.

The Solar Plexus Chakra, a.ka. Manipura

The solar plexus is the third chakra and is also known in Sanskrit as the “Manipura” chakra.

The manipura is located below the base of the sternum and above the navel.

The position is noted in the diagram above by the bright yellow light just below the green light of the fourth or heart chakra.

Solar plexus and your self-esteem

The solar plexus is the center of your will and your personal strength. Your confidence and self-esteem are here.

Through the solar plexus you see yourself as an individual in the world and you appreciate how the world looks back on you.

Some people equate the solar plexus with the ego.

People with vital and balanced solar plexus chakras have a strong and clear self-esteem.

They are confident, they manifest their intentions, take responsibility for their actions, and have control over their lives.

Biophysical aspects of the third chakra

The solar plexus chakra controls digestion and the organs connected to it such as the stomach, small and large intestines, spleen, pancreas, liver and gallbladder.

Given its connection with the digestive tract, it is not surprising that imbalances in the solar plexus often manifest in the physical body as one or more of a variety of digestive problems:

Frequent constipation or diarrhea
Stomach, intestinal and liver problems

The dysfunction can also manifest itself in eating disorders such as bulimia and anorexia, binge eating, and emotional dependence on prepared meals.

Yin and Yang of the third chakra

Problems with the solar plexus tend to be extreme, depending on whether there is excess yin (inward) or excess yang (outward) in the body.

Yang nature

Many people with an overdeveloped solar plexus chakra are over-thinkers. They can be very rational and analytical until they ignore their more playful, creative nature.

Suspicion, anger, and greed can be linked to solar plexus imbalance. These attributes are by nature more external and more aggressive and thus an expression of the Yang imbalance.

Yin nature

People with excess yin tend to be more submissive. You may be suspicious of others or feel powerless, hopeless, pessimistic, doubtful, frustrated, or depressed.

Your focus is more inward.

Imbalances of the solar plexus and the sacral chakra

In my experience as a certified aromatherapist and energy healer, solar plexus chakra imbalances are often associated with sacral chakra problems.

This is because the sacral chakra is linked to family and our upbringing.

For example, arrogant parents who rationalize their behavior and make lots of rules often raise children who think and analyze too much.

These children learn from experience to ignore their emotional and creative side.

Similarly, supercritical parents impart supercritical properties to their children that indicate the influence of the sacral chakra on the solar plexus.

How do you combine essential oils for solar plexus chakra dysfunction?

I can assign essential oils to a chakra according to the energetic, emotional, mental and physical properties of the chakra.

But when I choose them for a person, I look at how the imbalance in a chakra manifests itself in that particular person. This also includes taking into account imbalances in other chakras.

Finally, I choose the essential oils based on the specific situation or the person’s intention.

Since imbalances essentially assume two different extremes depending on the Yin / Yang qualities, it is important to consider these energetic properties when choosing essential oils for solar plexus.

For example, when there is agitation and aggression from too much yang, emphasize yin essential oils. In contrast, Yang oils are typically helpful when a person is withdrawn or depressed.

Here are the 6 best essential oils for your solar plexus chakra that will also strengthen and tone your yin and yang energies.

1.Ylang Ylang (Cananga ordorata)

Ylang Ylang is an excellent Yang soothing essential oil for the third chakra. It cools down, clears up, and can cause anger, frustration, and other emotionally charged or excited states.

2. Juniper (Juniperus communis)

Similarly, juniper triggers feelings and energetic blocks associated with anger, frustration, and anger. It detoxifies and helps cleanse the liver, strengthens willpower, and reduces the fear of failure.

Juniper is freed from these heavy self-critical feelings and can restore self-confidence and self-esteem.

3. Fennel (Foeniculum vulgare)

Fennel reduces the tendency to over-think and over-analyze.

It creates a feeling of self-love, self-acceptance and self-esteem and gives one motivation, courage and self-confidence.

4.Tea tree (Melaleuca alternifolia)

Several essential oils strengthen and tone the yin energy.

Tea tree is better for yin imbalances. It helps overcome feelings of victimization and hopelessness. And it can help a person see and accept their shadow self.

5. Grapefruit (Citrus x paradisi)

Grapefruit is good for depression, lack of self-confidence and nervous exhaustion, all yin in nature.

You can also combine grapefruit with ginger. The latter is strong and bright and helps with a lack of motivation.

It is especially beneficial when the demotivation results from a lack of self-confidence or a positive self-esteem.

Ginger’s boldness inspires trust, courage and inner strength.

6. Neroli (Citrus aurantium)

Neroli also has yin qualities. While its effects are similar to ginger, it also conveys a sense of lightness, hope, joy, and positive energy.

Now you have some understanding of the essential oils that balance the solar plexus chakra.

Keep in mind, however, that imbalances are rarely one-dimensional and can almost always benefit from a holistic approach.

This is where the beauty of essential oils lies. Consider adding them to your health, wellbeing, and healing.
