Chakras are energy centers in our body. When they function well, we feel good and healthy. Aromatherapy can help better chakras' health.

For Muladhara chakra you will need sweet and hot tonicizing smells such as rose, juniper, camphor, coconut, opium.

For Svadishthana chakra you can take hot but astringent aromas, for example, camomile, patchouli, clover, amber, cinnamon, almond.

For Manipura chakra you may need warm scents like mint, tulasi, lotus, vanilla, myrrh.

For Anahata chakra use subtle, silky, tonicizing aromas, such as mignonette, geranium, orchid, cestrum, rhododendron, neroli, violet.

For Visuddha chakra try cool smells such as wormwood, hyacinth, rosemary, jasmin, ylang-ylang, lemon.

For Ajna and Sahasrara chakras you can have cold, sobering, soothing aromas like lavender, sandalwood, labdanum, bergamot.
