Combining herbs and Reiki to balance the chakras

Reiki goes to work, aligning the chakra system and when we combine the extracts of certain essential oils an harmonious success is achieved.

The essential oils or herbs play a major role in enhancing the vibrational pattern and influencing our chakras along with one’s aura.

There are 7 energy centers or chakras in the body that help to align us and keep our body, mind and spirit balanced.

When our chakras are  imbalanced we become susceptible to spiritual, mental, emotional and physical dis-eases and this where some energy work and herbs come in handy.

Herbs have been used for healing for centuries and they carry a powerful vibration that connects us to the earth and our vital energy.

Stimulate or healing your charkas with herbs is particularly beneficial, as they touch us on a physical and energetic level – clearing out psychic debris and increasing detoxification and oxygen pathways.
