Chakra 5, or the throat chakra, is linked with the throat, thyroid, neck, jaw, and mouth. It governs feelings of self-expression, communication, and personal truth, and influences our ability to hear and understand.
Our throat chakra is one that can be guided in to equilibrium with a combination of essential oils, including Eucalyptus essential oil with our Chakra 5 essential oil blend
. This pure essential oil blend can be diffused or diluted for application with our Chakra “Good Vibes” carrier oil.

When we turn the clocks back, we may all be sighing with relief that we’re gaining an hour of sleep. However, many of us will take some time to adjust to the sun setting earlier, leaving us feeling sluggish and not well-rested in the slightest.
