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!

Love + Light,

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!

August Promotion!!! Get a FREE Lifelong Vitality Pack ($106 value)

One of the things I love about doTERRA? They understand that without a strong foundation of nutrition, no amount of essential oil magic is going to truly change your wellness.  However, even if you live in idyllic conditions, it’s hard in this day and age to get the nutrition you need. With soil health declining and toxicity on the rise, we just need more nutrition than we can even consume on a whole foods, organic diet to tip the scales back in our favor.

This is where supplementation comes in and why so many of us have found doTERRA’s Lifelong Vitality supplements to make such a huge difference in our health and well, vitality.

It’s also why it’s their #1 selling product, even above their beloved oils. If your food or supplements are not leaving you full of energy, if they are upsetting your stomach, if you’re struggling with health goals that require you to nurture your whole body…if you’re human… I’d encourage you to check out the video on this page and consider giving Lifelong Vitality a spin for a month--

Currently, until August 31st:  If you join my team and place a 100pv order by August 31 and set up your LRP order of 100 pv for September- and then enroll someone under you who also places a 100 pv order by August 31st-- you will receive the Lifelong Vitality Pack for FREE!!!!!!  Thats a $106 value for FREE!!!  Offer is only good until August 31st! Feel free to contact me and I would be happy to help you get enrolled!

Essential Oils to Combat Fatigue and Exhaustion!

Essential Oils can combat Fatigue and Exhaustion!!!! Learn how to use them to help you in your daily life! 

Fatigue and exhaustion can take their toll on both your mental and physical health.  Just about everyone experiences them at some point in their life, but people living with chronic pain or chronic fatigue experience them everyday. Since March is National Chronic Fatigue Syndrome Awareness month, I thought there was no better time to address the topic of fatigue (chronic or otherwise) and give you a few tools to help you deal with it when it strikes. Of course it’s better if you can prevent fatigue and exhaustion in the first place with a solid stress reduction and self-care plan, but unfortunately that’s not an option for everyone since you can’t prevent the effects of chronic illness. What you can do, however, is find ways to lessen the impact. Below are 5 of the best essential oils to use when fatigue or exhaustion set in.

  • Basil – is a mental stimulant. The scent can help aid concentration, sharpen the senses, and have an uplifting effect of depression. *Caution: Only a small amount is needed, it can be stupefying when over used. Less is more with this oil.
  • Eucalyptus – has many actions that can help when you’re fatigued. It stimulates the mind and aids concentration. It can also help reduce rheumatic pain (especially when paired with juniper); and reduced pain will naturally raise energy levels in the body.
  • Geranium – is the great balancer. It has an uplifting aroma and is an emotional balancer that is especially helpful with anxiety and depression (so could be very beneficial to those with both chronic pain/fatigue AND depression &/or anxiety). Geranium is also balancing to the mind through it’s stress relieving properties. It also balances the hormonal system and is therefore a great oil to use if you find yourself fatigued each month around the same time. *Can be slightly stimulating to some so best to not use this oil within 2-3 hours of bedtime.
  • Peppermint – is an excellent oil to relieve mental fatigue. *Do not use if you take or use homeopathic preparations as it antidotes them.
  • Rosemary – is a highly stimulating oil. It clears the head, aids memory, and enlivens the brain. *Don’t use this oil within 6 hours of bedtime. I’ve known more than one aromatherapist, myself included, to be wide awake at 3am because they worked with Rosemary too close to bedtime. ** Do not use Rosemary if you have epilepsy, high blood pressure, or are pregnant.

To get the benefit of these oils, all you need to do is smell them. You can use a diffusor, a moistened cotton ball or tissue in a baggie, or smell them right out of the bottle. They can also be applied to the body and worn as “perfume” if diluted (20 drops per ounce of oil or lotion used for diluting – less if you are sensitive to smells or medications or if you have sensitive skin). These oils are no substitute for taking care of yourself the way you should, but  they can be a great tool in your self-care toolbox.

Happy Spring Equinox from The Gypsy Homestead!!!!

Happy Spring Equinox from The Gypsy Homestead!  How are you spending your first day of Spring 2017????  Here at the Homestead, I have spent the day listening to nature's music, planting wildflowers outdoors and planting my garden vegetable plants in starter pots to be placed in the greenhouse indoors in preparation for garden season!!!  It was the perfect day!  Nature is amazing in so many ways and growing my own plants, sowing seeds in the garden and planting seeds in my magic flower garden are just the beginnings of what the season holds!  Get outdoors and enjoy nature in some form today!  Happy Spring Equinox 2017 to all!


Spring is in the air, and today sees the Vernal Equinox - which officially marks the beginning of the Spring season!!!  That means the daffodils are blooming, blossom is on the trees, Easter is coming, and lambing season will soon be getting under way.

Here's everything you need to know about the first day of spring.

Why does the Vernal Equinox happen?

The equinox occurs because of the tilt of the Earth in relation to the Sun. This is what causes the seasons.

The Earth's tilt is 23.5 degrees relative to the plane of its orbit and means that, although one revolution of the planet takes 24 hours, it's different depending on the time of year.

During the summer time, the Northern Hemisphere is tilted towards the Sun, so we get longer days as more light falls on this part of the planet.

In the winter time it's the Southern Hemisphere that gets the majority of the light.

'Equal night'

On the spring equinox, the Earth hits the turning point in its orbit where neither the North or the South poles are tilted towards the sun.

As a result, the Sun spends a roughly equal amount of time above and below the horizon at every location on the Earth, so night and day are about the same length.

The word equinox is Latin for "equal night".

Meteorologists use it as the official turning point in the seasons because, although it can vary from year to year, it allows for the most accurate record-keeping.

When is the spring equinox?

This year, the vernal (or spring) equinox takes place on Monday, March 20.

After this point, the days will get longer and the nights will get shorter until the summer solstice on June 21, when the pattern will reverse.

How is the spring equinox celebrated?

Equinoxes and solstices mark key stages in the astronomical cycle of the Earth.

The March equinox has long been celebrated as a time of rebirth in the Northern Hemisphere.

Many cultures celebrate spring festivals and holidays around the March equinox, like Easter and Passover.

However, there are also a few more unorthodox celebrations - some of which date back thousands of years.

If you're looking for a way to mark the occasion, here are five weird traditions to give you inspiration:

1. Balance an egg

There is an ancient Chinese belief that you can stand an egg on its end on the first day of spring.

The theory goes that, due to the sun's equidistant position between the poles of the earth at the time of the equinox, special gravitational forces apply.

This is, of course, nonsense. But it does still make for a fun party game - and you can save your eggs to paint on Easter Day.

2. Throw some coloured powder

Holi is an ancient Hindu festival celebrating the victory of good over evil. It takes place each year around the time of the vernal equinox.

Known as the "festival of colours", it is celebrated by tossing vibrant coloured powders onto each other and dancing in the streets.

This year, Holi starts on Sunday, March 12, but if you've got some leftover powder, why not save it to brighten up your day on the 20th?

3. Wear a shamrock


The symbolic plant of the equinox in Druidry is the trefoil or shamrock, which is also customarily worn on St. Patrick's Day.

The three leaves shaped like hearts were associated with the Triple Goddess of Celtic mythology, otherwise known as the "Three Morgans"

The shamrock is thought to be symbolic of the regenerative powers of nature.

4. Plant seeds


The spring equinox is symbolic of rebirth, renewal, and growth, and in ancient Italy, it was traditional for women to plant seeds in the gardens of Adonis on this day.

The custom persists in Sicily, where women plant seeds of grains - lentils, fennel, lettuce or flowers - in baskets and pots.

When they sprout, the stalks are tied with red ribbons and the flowers are placed on graves on Good Friday, symbolising the triumph of life over death.

5. Visit an ancient monument

Many of the world's ancient monuments were built as astrological calendars, to map the movement of the Sun over the course of the year.

The equinox is therefore a great time to visit these monuments, as they are often aligned to make the most of the Sun's unique position in the sky.

At Stonehenge in Wiltshire, the sun can be seen rising precisely between two stones, while at Chichén Itzá in Mexico, the rising sun transforms one edge of the giant pyramid into a blazing serpent, representing the Mayan god Kukulcan.

No matter what tradition you and your family celebrate during the Spring Equinox, find time to get out and enjoy nature, spring time in bloom, take time to thank the Earth and vow to take care of it!!!  May abundance and prosperity bless you this year!!!
