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 Third Eye 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 the essential oil topically, apply it to the forehead in the middle of the eyebrows.
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 Third Eye Chakra
One of the most important things to keep in mind when doing a third eye 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 forehead in between your eyebrows.
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 third eye chakra area in between your eyebrows, or you can put the oils in a diffuser you can:
- Lay down for 15 to 20 minutes
- Focus on the third eye 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 Third Eye 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 third eye 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.
