The universe in which we reside possesses significant healing potential. Unlike western medicine, vibrational medicine through essential oils addresses the human body by first communicating with the aura or surrounding energy field of a living entity. Essential oils encompass a vibrating frequency in which interact, communicate and respond to imbalances and needs within the etheric body or subtle energy bodies. The “Law of Vibration” states that all atoms vibrate at different frequencies. Furthermore, when exposed to light and force, frequency will present in the form of color. Constituents within essential oils give off individual unique frequencies that determine the color recipe of that particular plant. When used as medicine these “colors” communicate (whether inhaled or applied topically) through vibrational frequencies. These constituent frequencies then flow through the seven chakras or “energy valves” throughout the human body.
The human body is born equipped with functioning chakras and its own surrounding electromagnetic field. This energy field was confirmed in 1992 by Bruce Tainio who built the first Tainio frequency monitor. This monitor detected life frequencies which displayed as color. NASA technology confirmed this finding stating the human body gives off continuous electromagnetic frequencies via our atoms. This field of frequency or (aura) is in continuous mode to exchange energies between the universe and etheric body through the chakras. This energy exchange is known as the “Universal Life Force.” Electromagnetic equipment has also defined measurable vibrating frequencies of a healthy human. In a healthy state, the human vibrational frequency displayed and measured at a range of 62-72 Hz. Any slight drop in frequency below 58 Hz proved to cause immune system susceptibility to cold and flu symptoms. It was also discovered that Candida vibrates at 55 Hz, Epstein Bar at 52 Hz and Cancer at 42 Hz and below. Essential oils hold frequencies anywhere from 52 Hz to as high as 320 Hz! It has been said that disease will present in the etheric body before it eventually settles into the physical body. This data verifies if the physical, energetic and etheric body are nourished via natural living medicine it is most capable of preventing disease of the physical body. Essential oils are now key to treat and heal etheric body imbalances, damage and stagnation.
The term Chakra was coined by the Vedas culture in 2,500 B.C. Its function is to receive, store and express energy that is commonly invisible to the naked eye. Chakras can be described as “wheels” of energy that operate similar to valves that allow and distribute incoming electrical current from the universe. For the body to operate at a healthy state all seven chakras must be balanced to receive and utilize energy. Chakras can become stagnant, blocked and even overburdened. It is also possible for one chakra to influence another chakra and its functioning.
The Chakras and Aromatherapy
Seven chakras are embedded within the spinal column starting at the root chakra or coccyx. The Root Chakra contains the lowest energy frequency. The highest energy frequency resides at the Crown (head) Chakra. Chakras have proven to be very much associated with the endocrine system and are seated within or near the major glands of this system. The endocrine system plays a major role within the physical body. These glands control the body’s major functions and secrete hormones into the bloodstream. Secretion of hormones within the endocrine system is then adjusted by the autonomic nervous system by initiating or terminating a physical process.
The 1st chakra is called the Base Chakra, residing at the root or base of the spinal column. It is responsible for the adrenals, circulation of blood and reproductive organs. This chakra holds the lowest frequency and when in balance displays the color Red. It represents physical survival, determination, grounding and sexuality. The amount of energy within this chakra gives one the ability to associate themselves with earth and effectively function upon this earth. Essential oils that display frequencies of Red can be effective for assisting circulation, boosting energy when one’s battery is running low, detoxing and uplifting the psyche. Effective essential oils to open and balance this chakra include: Vetiver, Patchouli and Myrrh.
The 2nd chakra is the Sacral Chakra, residing at the testes and ovaries. This chakra is also responsible for the abdomen, kidneys, urinary bladder, appendix, lower back and lower intestines. Like the Base Chakra, balance within this chakra produces a sense of grounding, sexuality and emotional balance. Imbalances within this chakra can result in sciatica, chronic lower back discomfort, gynecological problems, urinary problems and sexual issues. In a healthy state the Sacral Chakra vibrates to give off the color Orange. Essential oils to assist with proper function of the Sacral Chakra include: Jasmine, Sandalwood and Rose Absolute.
The 3rd chakra is the Solar Plexus Chakra, housed near the pancreas. This chakra is also responsible for the stomach, liver, spleen, gallbladder and nervous system. It is said that emotions are absorbed at this chakra. In a state of balance this chakra maintains feelings of worth, self-esteem, individuality, personal power and control over life. Proper digestion is also a result of this chakra staying healthy. Deficiencies within this chakra may cause malfunctions of any of the digestive organs that receive energy from this center and may possibly result in diabetes, stomach ulcers and the adrenals not releasing proper hormones in times of increased stress. The color Yellow is reflected when the Solar Plexus Chakra functions properly. Effective oils to assist flow through this chakra include: Juniper berry and Vetiver.
The 4th chakra is the Heart Chakra, seated at the thymus. Thymus producing hormones stimulate growth and assist with immunity. This chakras vibrational frequency displays as Green or Pink. Balance of this chakra is necessary to express love, forgiveness and self-acceptance. Grief, negative thoughts and emotions can close or stagnate this chakra. Imbalance may result in: asthma, breast cancer, lung cancer and heart disease. Scientists are also discovering that autoimmune diseases may now have an emotional link. Healing oils for the Heart Chakra include: Rose Otto, Rose Absolute, Melissa, Ylang Ylang, Bergamot and Neroli.
The 5th chakra is the Throat Chakra, seated near the thyroid and parathyroid gland. It is also responsible for providing energy to the surrounding vocal cords, mouth and trachea. The vibrational frequency color is Blue. Balance within the throat chakra creates effective communication, spiritual drive, goal obtainment, realization of feelings and emotional and self expression. This chakra is the center of the will. Imbalances will cause discrepancies in effective communication and may later lead to mouth ulcers, chronic sore throat, gum problems, scoliosis, swollen glands, thyroid malfunction and laryngitis. Roman and German Chamomile are effective oils to revitalize this chakra.
The 6th chakra is the Third Eye Chakra, seated near the pituitary gland or the “master” gland of the endocrine system. The Third Eye Chakra is also responsible for supplying energy to the pineal gland, spinal cord, ears, eyes, sinuses and nose. This gland regulates metabolism, body chemistry and growth. This chakra is a psychic tool providing insight, intuition, understanding of the surrounding environment and may give one the ability to connect with their higher self. Balance within this chakra represents wisdom. It’s vibrational frequency gives off the color Indigo. Disease and imbalance within this chakra can be a result of not wanting to see or understand something important in life that would provide individual growth. Effective essential oils to maintain proper functioning include: Juniper Berry, Helichrysum, Thyme, Basil and Rosemary.
The 7th chakra is the Crown Chakra, residing near the pineal gland or “house of the soul.” This is the highest area within the chakra system and gives off the highest level of vibrational frequency. This representing frequency is Violet. The Crown Chakra is linked to our spiritual quest and divine self which leads us to our ultimate goal in life. The Crown Chakra is responsible for the cerebral cortex and the central nervous system. For this chakra to function at its optimal level there must be balance between the body, mind and spirit which gives us understanding of humankind, fulfillment and spirituality. Imbalance of the Crown Chakra may produce sensitivities to light and sound, mood disorders and depression. Rosewood, Sandalwood, Myrrh and Frankincense are effective oils to open and awaken the Crown Chakra.
Essential oil constituents give off vibrational frequencies that make this form of medicine very unique, complicating and intriguing. These frequencies interact and talk to human frequencies to facilitate bodily and chakra healing. The flow of energy allowed through our chakras is heavily influenced by our behaviors, emotions and spiritual standing. It is most important for emotional trauma and conflict to be released to allow for proper energy flow and balance. When inner conflict and trauma becomes trapped within the etheric body, chakras become stagnant and blocked. It is believed that disease will present in the etheric body before it will present in the physical body. Knowing this, it just makes sense that essential oil therapy is the proper medicine to treat and resolve energetic disorders upfront before the physical body is affected.
Essential oils are multi-tankers that work at the energetic, physical and vibrational levels. All essential oils possess a particular color code or “recipe” of colors. Color frequencies within a particular essential oil move through a series of events communicating to the corresponding colored chakra. Lemongrass is a spiritual healing oil that assists with energy stagnation and protects from energetic invaders. It not only banishes stress from the electromagnetic filed but acts as a tonic to the etheric body. The color recipe of Lemongrass includes: Purple, Red, Orange and Green in this order. First the vibrational energy of Purple activates the Crown Chakra invigorating the brain and replenishing the energy field. After this, Red descends to the Base Chakra and produces a grounding affect. Activation of life force is initiated. Moving forward, Red moves to Orange and balances and soothes emotions. Once emotions are balanced the color changes to Green moving to the Heart Chakra. This action produces a nurturing feeling. The overall actions of Lemongrass is such: removes negative energy from the energy field and asks permission to then bring in one’s own spiritual force. Red grounds and then asks to move forward to Orange which balances emotionally while ridding of harmful emotions. Green assists with, realizes and accepts this release of negativity while nurturing and asking not to repeat these identified emotions. Green also will promote action to live in and stay in the moment.
Color frequencies and auras are invisible to the naked eye unless one has special equipment or psychic aura reading capabilities. Research has proven that essential oils have the highest frequency of any organic material know to man. When blending with essential oils for energetic purposes it is important and most helpful to blend in low dilution and listen to what your body is aromatically craving. This is our body communicating to us and allowing yourself to listen will benefit profusely.
It is very important to recognize when working with essential oils for vibrational medicinal purposes one must gather appropriate and precise intake from the client. A trained professional who is gifted in identifying energies and color may also be of importance to properly treat a chakra imbalance. There is much to learn about essential oils and their vibrational healing potentials. It is certain that essential oils produce complimentary and protective actions within a humans energy field. Any restrictions or blocks in the chakras can cause a malfunction of the physical body and manifest as discomfort, emotional imbalance, feelings of fear, decline in energy and disease. It is accurate to state that today’s people are living with more chronic imbalances which is leading to an increase in detrimental disease. People are searching and resorting to holistic approaches to wellness and treatment. Now has never been a better time to take control, expand your options and look to alternative medicine. It just makes sense that vibrational healing. for spiritual and physical well-being is the priority medicine.
