- Rumi

The solar plexus is the domain of the third chakra, MANIPURA. Stoking this inner fire gives of strength from within.

One of my favorite yoginis, Jo Tastula once said, “To make fire you must strike a match against a hard surface or rub two sticks together. The thing we need to rub up against is our own power, our own will, our own desire, and our own discipline. When we connect with THAT, then we build a fire that transforms our life.”

Two essential oil blends that are excellent for supporting the third chakra are the Joyful and Invigorating Blends. I use them both on me (topically) and in my home (diffuser) on a regular basis. They are bright and uplifting and I feel their effects almost instantly.

According to the book “Emotions & Essential Oils,” Invigorating Blend is known as the Oil of Creativity and acts as a powerful “fire starter.” It returns motivation and drive when it is lacking. It rekindles the the fire of the personality and fills the heart with creativity and joy.

The Joyful Blend combines powerful mood stabilizers such as Sandalwood, Rose, Jasmine and Ylang Ylang with joy filled oils such as Tangerine, Elemi, Melissa and Lemon Myrtle. The warm vibrations of these and other oils used in Elevation can soothe the heart and balance the emotions.

Wishing you all the best! Stoke your fire, shine your light and empower others to do the same…
