Using Essential Oils and Crystals To Heal and Cleanse Your Chakras!

Using Essential Oils and Crystals to Heal and Cleanse Your Chakras!  Any of the oils shown below can be purchased at

The best thing you can do to keep your energetic system in check is to do a regular chakra tune-up. As our energetic “organs”, the chakras work with our physical, mental, and emotional bodies, both influencing and being influenced by our experiences, our activity, and even our nutrition.

We can’t shut our chakras off any more than we can shut our organs off, but like our physical organs, our chakras can get fatigued and depleted over time. If we’re exposed to too many low vibrational frequencies (traumatic events, poor stress management, lack of self-care), our chakras can even become blocked causing all sorts of symptoms, such as physical pain or feelings of depression.

Thankfully, there are many ways to cleanse and revitalize your chakras. One of the easiest and most efficient ways to do this is by using crystals and oils.  Crystals affect our chakras by lifting their vibration, clearing them, and causing them to “spin” at an optimal rate.

Crystals possess some of the highest vibrational frequencies on earth, and simply being around crystals and setting your intention to attune to their vibration can have a profound effect on your health and wellbeing. Plus, each crystal has its own unique energetic properties, and can therefore be used strategically to enhance sluggishness or subdue overactivity in the chakras.

In this article, I am going to show you how to perform a crystal healing session for your chakras. Of course, you can use this template for your clients, or your family and friends as well!

Remember, that when it comes to crystal healing, you can get as fancy as you like, but don’t confuse fanciness with effectiveness. The method I am going to present to you is a basic template, from which you can add on with other crystals, or healing modalities (such as aromatherapy, massage, etc).

Selecting the Crystals

Simply select one crystal or stone for each chakra. For a general chakra balancing session, try to pick a stone whose colour matches that of the chakra’s the same for the oils.  Place one drop of each of the oils shown above on the appropriate Chakra center.  Examples:

Base Chakra – Red/Black, such as red jasper or black tourmaline
Sacral Chakra – Orange, such as carnelian or citrine
Solar Plexus Chakra – Yellow, such as yellow jasper or citrine
Heart Chakra – Green/Pink, such as green aventurine or rose quartz
Throat Chakra – Blue, such as turquoise or angelite
Third Eye Chakra – Indigo, such as sodalite or lapis lazuli
Crown Chakra – Violet/White, such as amethyst or clear quartz

In a pinch, clear quartz is a great substitute for any stone because it contains all of the colours within it, and it’s a fantastic energetic amplifier and master healer. And yes, even if that means the majority of your stones are clear quartz, that will perfectly if that’s all you’ve got!

Don’t be afraid to get creative and to listen to your intuition. The stones I’ve presented are simply examples; there are many, many other stones out there that you could use just as effectively.

Placing the Crystals

Ideally, you would place the crystal on and around your body, corresponding to the chakra it is going to balance.

Base Chakra – Off the body, between the inner thighs, close to your perineum
Sacral Chakra – Between your hip bones, where your reproductive organs are
Solar Plexus Chakra – Between your lower ribs and belly button
Heart Chakra – At your sternum (not to the left, where your physical heart is; directly in the middle of your chest)
Throat Chakra – At your throat (or off your body beside your throat, if you find that it falls off)
Third Eye Chakra – Between the eyebrows
Crown Chakra – Off the body, above your head

You may also wish to place some crystals in the palms of your hands, such as clear quartz. Much energy enters and leaves your body through your palms, and if you’re a Reiki or energetic healing practitioner, your palms would LOVE the crystal tune-up! Your hands (and throat) are also major manifestors, which is why writing out your goals is so effective to bringing them to fruition.

Also, please don’t stress about placing the crystal in the “perfect” spot. Your chakras are large wheels of energy, and your intention is what ultimately causes the crystal to do its healing work. You cannot do this wrong!

Setting the Scene

Whether you’re doing a healing session for yourself or a client, it is of utmost importance to first allow yourself to come into a state of deep relaxation. Ways to increase your relaxation and therefore enhance your healing experience include:

  • Playing soothing, ambient music
  • Diffusing essential oils
  • Keeping warm with appropriate layers, such as socks, or wearing a blanket (under the crystals)
  • Dimming the lights

Bring yourself into a “savasana” state by taking some deep breaths (in through the nose and out through the mouth) to begin. Then, if possible, continuing to breathe deeply in and out through the nose.

If you will be placing the crystals on yourself, allow yourself to calm down first; you don’t want to feel rushed or clumsy through the process. Don’t worry if the crystals “move” or fall off. Again, you cannot do this wrong!

What If a Crystal Falls Off?

If it falls off yourself, you can choose to either replace it or leave it; if you leave it, it doesn’t meant that the healing is going to “stop”, because energetic healing crosses all boundaries of time and space. Just do what suits you at the time.

If it falls off your client, you can simply replace it. If it falls off again despite your efforts, then leave it – trust the process, the energy knows what it is doing.

How Much Time?

Your crystal healing session can last as long as you like. Whether you have 5 or 20 minutes, your chakras will be balanced and rejuvenated after your crystal therapy. Don’t force yourself to stay longer than you can manage, as this will only create stress; however, do allow yourself the time and luxury of maintaining a state of deep relaxation and to soak up the healing energy of the crystals.

Cleansing the Crystals

Be sure to cleanse your crystals before and after the healing session. You can do this simply by running them under cool tap water, or by passing them through incense smoke or sage smoke (also known as smudging).

Doing a crystal chakra healing session is an essential skill for all energy healing practitioners, and for anybody who wishes to have optimal health. It’s simple, easy, and will address any issue you’re dealing with.

Regularly balancing your chakras with crystals is a wonderful healing practice, and will definitely enhance your life. Give it a try!

Biggest Question Asked: "How Do I Begin Selling doTERRA Essential Oils"?

Since I’ve started mentioning essential oils more and more on the blog I’ve been getting emails with questions about how to buy them, or even sell them for extra money. Here’s a bit of information to help you understand how it works and why I love them.

My family started using essential oils 4-5 years ago.  My friend gave us a bottle of Breathe to try and we have been using it ever since.  It worked so well that we bought a bottle for every family member {so we didn’t have to search the house for it!} About 6 months later I started looking into the benefits of other essential oils and found them to be amazing…almost like magic!  For real.  It’s simply something you have to try to believe!  I could go on and on about all the benefits we’ve experienced from essential oils like Melaluca, Peppermint, Deep Blue and more.

I started telling everyone I know about them, and that’s how I began selling doTERRA Essential Oils

Here’s a little overview on how it works…


You can become a Wellness Advocate {or wholesale member} and start off by receiving a 25% discount on doTERRA products. It’s only $35…kind of like joining a shopping club like Sam’s Club or Costco.  You’ll earn free doTERRA products through the Loyalty Rewards Program {like a frequent flyer program} where you get points for scheduled orders.  You’ll also get a free personalized online store, free business training, marketing tools, a virtual office for sales,and the opportunity to grow a business while sharing the real benefits of essential oils.  Earn commission on your sales and on the sales of the people that sign up to sell under you.  It’s simple, really.  You share…more people share…it’s a good thing!

This works for someone that places at least one order a year for their family or someone that wants to make a big business out of it.  {So, it’s the best way to get a great deal for anyone!}  ****With this option, I will gift you a FREE bottle of Wild Orange Essential Oil and a packet of Essential Oil information to help learn about the oils.

There’s the basic wellness advocate membership kit.  But, there’s also these doTERRA Essential Oil Starter Kits that are an awesome value for someone new to oils or beginning a business.--we offer many different kits.   They include the $35 member fee and a great selection of the most popular oils and oil blends.  With this option, I will not only gift you the free Wild Orange Oil and the informational packet, but also a FREE wooden doTERRA essential Oils storage box ($20 value)


How to Sell doTERRA Essential Oils

Become a doTERRA Wellness Advocate {or wholesale member}!  This isn’t some strange deal where you have to spend thousands and throw 3 parties a week.  That would NEVER work for me!

You don’t need to throw parties or even sell products.  You can do it just to get the the wholesale pricing on your own orders or orders for family.  Once you start trying essential oils you might find yourself wanting to tell everyone you know…I’m warning you. Smile  When you see how a little Peppermint can change your world you might want to share through a class…your friends will thank you.  They’re even kits to help you have a simple cooking or oil blending class with very little preparation.

You can really do a major makeover on your medicine cabinet with essential oils and feel good about using something natural.  That has to be better for you, don’t you think?  I can help you learn how to do it!

I offer phone calls, online classes and more to all our team members to help you learn about essential oils.  They really are amazing and easy to share.

There are NO REQUIRED MONTHLY ORDERS!  {That’s one of the biggest questions I get!}

{You can see all the benefits of becoming a wellness advocate on my doTERRA site:

You can grow your doTERRA business to suit your needs.  Sell products through your free online store {25% commission} or buy products and sell them at retail prices.  It’s easy to get free products to turn around and sell.  You can also start building your own team and training them to build teams…the sky is the limit.

Wellness Advocates do NOT need to live near me!  I can help you grow by email and phone calls, online classes and more!  I now have MANY people on my team from all over the united states...  So, no worries about where you live…you can still work together with us!  We offer some fabulous online classes for our team members and a private Facebook group loaded with friendly people!


—Click here to sign up:   When you join as a new “Wellness Advocate” you’ll get 25% off and doTERRA will send you an introductory packet including an introductory DVD, Product Guide, Essential Oil Usage Chart and more.  Read all the material and then decide whether you want to sell essential oils or just use them for your family. (This is only $35)

When you try doTERRA Essential Oils I’m sure you’ll love them as much as I do!  I hope that answers some of your questions, but feel free to email me for more information.  Once you decide to join, I will send you an email with instructions on how to sign up!

I’d love to have you join my team!  I’ll be there to help you out with lots of information along the way!
