In light of the Spring season and all the herbs blooming, I put together a Chakra Herb and Oil Guide. Energetics plays a key role in healing, and maintaining balance and harmony. Our friends that are peeping out of the Earth this time of year (in the North East at least) can bring much more than a refreshed feeling when looking at your backyard. Their energy enhances or balances the energetic flow present within us. Please refer to the following list when doing Chakra healing work.

My previous blog posts provide insights on how to use herbs and essential oils but it is always recommended to drink herbs as a tea and inhale oils on a cotton round.
