Aromatherapy for your Stomach Chakra

The Stomach Chakra is connected to your emotional behaviour in relation to other people, on a physical level is governs digestion. When the Stomach Chakra is blocked it can lead to problems with lethargy, low self-esteem and emotional misery, as well as digestive problems. When it is over-active it can result in controlling, self-centred and angry behaviour.

Improve your View of Yourself

Spicy oils work on the Stomach Chakra to stimulate it when blocked or under-active. Both help you feel more positive about yourself. If the Chakra is over-active, massage is not a good idea. In such instances a bath with oils, a warm compress or steam inhalation is preferable. To stimulate the Chakra, inhalation is the best approach, so techniques like steam inhalation, vaporisers or drops of oil on a handkerchief are preferable.

Oils for your Stomach Chakra

Use you aromatherapy skills to treat problems with your digestion or emotional issues, including manipulative behaviour and insecurity.

Digestive problems

In the modern world it is all too easy to get indigestion or feel nauseous. You don't always have the time to be rigorous about what you eat and sometimes this may result in feeling ill. Such digestive problems block the Stomach Chakra as its energy is diverted into trying to overcome the imbalance.

A steam bath can help to get oils quickly into your system and help stimulate your Stomach Chakra to overcome those digestive problems quickly.

Alternatively, carry a vaporiser mix with you to ensure that you are always prepared.
