We live is a world that is more connected than ever, yet many still feel lonely despite the vast network of "friends" and "followers" at our fingertips.
And it's not just isolation from others, we also seem to have trouble tapping into our inner selves as well. Work, busy schedules, staying plugged in 24-7 is a reality of our day-to-day lives. Carving off me time can be challenging or seem frivolous, yet it's essential to re-estblishing the connections we are craving.
That's where self-care and aromatherapy come in handy. It's a reminder to spend some time nourishing your spirit so you can be open to cultivating meaningful experiences with others. The best part, small changes in your daily routine can make a big difference.
The fourth chakra, also known as the heart chakra, governs our ability to build connections, and to give and receive love. Located in the center of the chest, when this chakra is out of balance feelings of resentment and loneliness can creep in.
If your love life (or even your social life) is feeling blocked, try to work on showing yourself some loving kindness.
That may mean taking time to journal about your feelings, treating yourself to a massage or simply spending a few extra moments during your morning or nightly skin care routine.
Another convenient way to work on balancing that heart chakra is by anointing your pulse points with our Chakra 4 Essential Oil Roll-On.
We suggest applying it to the center of the chest and breathe in the light fragrant aroma. Made with Bergamot, Lavender, Rose, Melissa and Neroli essential oils, this aromatherapy blend promotes feelings of compassion, inner peace, acceptance, and love in the larger universal sense.
Use this essential oil roll-on before going on a nature walk as it will intensify the feeling of connectedness with the outside world.
