Find out why I recommend these pure essential oils: lavender, frankincense, myrrh, spikenard and sandalwood to cleanse and renew your chakra energy system and your auric field and how to use them for therapeutic results.
Healing baths have been used since antiquity for cleansing and restoring the human energy system, the body, mind, spirit and emotions.
Natural sea salts have been used for healing soaks and in ritual baths for as just as long.
Natural Clay and aromatic plants and oils have also been used for ritual purification rites, as well as other cleansing and healing practices throughout human history.
Sea salts are readily available and are rich in minerals and charged with electrical and healing properties that you can especially benefit from in a warm bath.
A sea salt bath with pure essential oils is an effective way to cleanse your chakras and auric energy field. You can purchase natural sea salt in your local health-food store in the spice section.

All of the recommended essential oils are known for their cleansing and restorative properties. Here are a few additional qualities of each essential oil for you to know about:
Lavender - is a universal anointing oil for clearing and balancing all the chakras.
Decongestive – an agent for relief or reduction of congestion
Restorative - an agent that helps to strengthen and revive the body systems
Frankincense (ancient holy oil) - Especially useful for balancing and healing the 1st (Muladhara – Base or Root), 4th (Anahata – Heart), 5th (Visshudha – Throat), and 7th (Sahasrara – Crown) Chakra.
Astringent – helps clear blockages
Expectorant – helps promote removal of cellular debris, relieves congestion.
Regulator - balances and harmonizes the chakras.
Myrrh (ancient holy oil) - especially beneficial for the 1st, 2nd (Svadhisthana - Sexual Chakra) and 3rd (Manipura - Solar Plexus) Chakras.
Astringent - promotes cleansing of blockages and stagnant chi.
Expectorant - helps promote removal of cellular debris, relieves congestion.
Restorative - an agent that helps to strengthen and revive the body systems.
Tonic - strengthens the chakras and chakra energy system.
Spikenard (ancient holy oil) - use to balance and nourish the 6th (Ajna – Brow) and 7th Chakra. Excellent for healing emotional trauma that may congest the chakras and energy system. Spikenard lifts your spirits and inspires your heart and mind to selfless acts of devotion and quiet inner peace. Spikenard is an ideal meditation oil and has traditionally been used in many incense formulas for spiritual enhancement and as a spiritual aid for contemplation and clarity of mind.
Regulator - balances and harmonizes chakras and chakra energy system.
Sandalwood (ancient holy oil) - clears chakras, emotional energy centers. Use Sandalwood to enhance your chakra meditation and to open your 3rd (Solar Plexus) chakra which connects you to the cosmic desire to manifest your divine soul's purpose. Your 3rd chakra ensures a strong feeling of self worth, empowerment and spiritual dominion.
Regulator - balances and harmonizes your chakras and energy system.
Stabilizer - promotes stability of your chakras and entire chakra energy system.
Tonic - strengthens and fortifies energy centers.
- Add 8-15 drops of essential oils to one tablespoon unscented liquid soap and blend together. The liquid soap acts a a carrier for the essential oils so they will disperse into your bath waters (not float on top of water).
- Add scented soap mixture to your sea salts and blend the mixture together thoroughly. Sea salts help to cleanse and charge your chakra energy centers and entire chakra energy system.
- The waters should be a warm, not hot; around 98.6º or body temperature is best for restoring your energy centers (chakras) and cleansing your auric field.
Soak for 15 minutes or until your bath water begins to cool. Please remember to hydrate sufficiently during and after your bath.
I recommend you make time for a spa treatment every day! Even 10-15minutes will give you welcomed pleasure and can be enormously balancing and healing for you.
