What is a chakra?
Chakras are powerful spiritual energy points along our bodies.
Each chakras corresponds to specific nerve bundles and organs in your body. When one or more of your chakras becomes blocked or unbalanced, it's thought to have an impact on your physical, mental, spiritual, and emotional health. When Chakras are balanced, they allow our bodies to run at optimal levels, bring peace to our lives and energy can run through them freely - bringing harmony between the physical body, mind, and spirit.
There are 7 main Chakras and we have a candle to help balance each of them.
Each chakra is a specific colour and corresponds to a specific area of your body and mind.
They can be activated and/or balanced by using certain crystals and scents that work with that particular chakra.
The 7 main chakras
Swadhisthana (sacral chakra) helps inform how we relate to our emotions and the emotions of others. It also governs creativity and sexual energy. Those with a blocked sacral chakra could feel a lack of control in their lives.
