Do you know how to balance your crown chakra with essential oils. Essential oils can balance your crown chakra so you feel connected to yourself and the universe. The best essential oils to balance your crown chakra are Lavender, Neroli, Frankincense, Sandalwood and Vanilla.

In this article, we will see how to balance your crown chakra using essential oils.

1. Understand if Your Crown Chakra Is Underactive or Overactive

If you recognise that your crown chakra is not at its best and you would like to improve its energy, the next step is understanding if your crown chakra is receiving the right amount of energy.

A crown chakra is underactive when only a little amount of energy passes through it and overactive when too much energy goes through it.

An underactive crown chakra may manifest as:

  • Mental stress
  • Physical stress
  • Isolating from others
  • Feeling disconnected from the environment and others
  • Attachments to material things
  • Attachments to people or relationships

An overactive crown chakra may manifest as:

  • Disconnection from your physical body
  • Overthinking
  • Daydreaming
  • Feeling away from reality
  • Lack of empathy

2. Choose the Right Essential Oils for the Crown Chakra

When you select the essential oils for your crown chakra, you need to pay attention to the properties of the essential oils themselves. Essential oils have different effects on the body, some have a calming effect and others help to energise and activate.

An essential oil that energises the crown chakra is beneficial to an underactive crown chakra. On the contrary, an essential oil that has a calming effect is beneficial for an overactive crown chakra.

These are some of the essential oils you can use to bring the crown chakra back to balance.

  • Cedarwood
  • Frankincense
  • Gurjum
  • Rosewood
  • Spikenard
  • Rose

To specifically target an underactive crown chakra use:

  • Sweet Lavender
  • Lime

You can balance an overactive crown chakra with:

  • Vanilla
  • Neroli

Frankincense and Sandalwood essential oils are good for everyday maintenance of your crown chakra.

We recommend always using essential oils that are therapeutic graded or even food graded.

3. Prepare the Space and the Oils for Your Crown Chakra Healing Session

Preparing the space for your crown chakra healing session is very important. Imagine the space for healing as a sacred place to relax and be yourself.

  • Choose a space that is comfortable and quiet
  • Tidy up and clean the space
  • Do an energetic clearing with palo santo and white sage
  • Place some plants around
  • Lit candles or a lamp with a warm light
  • Play mantras for the chakra or some other relaxing music
  • Prepare an area where you can lay down and relax
  • Place clear quartz in your healing room

Prepare the essential oils you will use to heal your crown chakra.

It can be tricky to know the proportion of essential oils to use. For instance, in 50mls of carrier oil, you should use 12 drops of essential oil.

There are different proportions if you are to use essential oils on children. For children use a 1% dilution, meaning 1 drop of essential oil to a teaspoon of carrier oil.

Adults can use a 2% dilution, meaning that you can use 3 to 6 drops of essential oil to a teaspoon of carrier oil.

4. Apply the Essential Oils to the Specific Areas to Heal Your Crown Chakra

There are several options to use essential oils for your chakras. You can apply them directly on your skin, place them in a diffuser and smell them, or you could also apply them on your clothing.

Essential oils can be used directly on the skin, but you need to dilute them in a carrier oil to diminish the risk of irritation to the skin or an allergic reaction.

If you plan to apply essential oils directly onto your skin, remember to do an allergy test first by placing a drop of oil on a small area of your underarm to ensure you won’t have an allergic reaction to the essential oils.

If you use essential oils topically, apply them to the top of your head.

If your skin is sensitive to the essential oils consider inhaling them or use a diffuser to spread the smell throughout the room.

5. Let the Essential Oils Heal Your Crown Chakra

One of the most important things to keep in mind when doing a crown chakra healing session is setting an intention. An intention refers to basically focusing on what you want to achieve from your chakra healing session.

Apply the essential oils diluted in a carrier oil. Some carrier oils you can use are apricot kernel oil, almond oil and coconut oil. Then apply the diluted essential oil to your navel area.

The healing session works best if you lay down and relax, as the stress dissipates, allowing the healing process to take place.

Setting aside a place where you can relax and allow some time for yourself and your healing will help you focus on your well-being.

Once you have applied the essential oils in the crown chakra area on the top of the head, or you can put the oils in a diffuser you can:

  • Lay down for 15 to 20 minutes
  • Focus on the crown chakra area
  • Make sure you keep warm
  • Close your eyes
  • Relax and open yourself to the healing energy

The essential oils affect emotions, memories, behaviours and some physiological functions.

6. Close Your Healing Session and Reflect on Your Crown Chakra Healing Session

Be thankful for having the opportunity to be looking after yourself and taking a step towards balancing your body, mind and spirit.

After your essential oil healing session, allow a few minutes for yourself to reflect on how you felt before the session and after the session.

Keep a journal to use after your crown chakra healing session. Write down anything you feel, experience, or see during your healing session. Consider any memories that may come, any feelings, emotions or sensations.

Enjoy the smell of essential oils during the day.
