The universe is made up of energy – and so are you! Tapping into this energy and harnessing it in positive ways can greatly enhance your self-care regimen. Our Chakra blends are designed to support your energy centers, called chakras, so that you can achieve a greater sense of balance, inside and out!
Your 6th chakra is commonly referred to as both the ‘third eye’ chakra and the ‘brow’ chakra. It’s located on your forehead between your eyes. It is widely considered to be the key to your spiritual and psychic abilities.
Our Clear Intuition blend is designed to support this chakra with its softly intoxicating scent, made from the essential oils of Grapefruit Pink, Clary Sage, Sandalwood Australian, and Spruce Hemlock.
Your Third Eye/Brow Chakra
If the name “third eye” sounds familiar, it’s likely because you’ve heard of it before!
Since ancient times, civilizations have recognized the existence of a place in our minds that understands more than what our five senses show us. Concepts like intuition, foresight, and your “sixth sense are all within the domain of the third eye/brown chakra. While your eyes guide physical direction, your 6th chakra sees inward for guidance. Your intuition brings you a clearer perception of your purpose. Ultimately, this chakra supports greater spiritual growth and transformation.
The indigo/deep purple chakra
The third eye chakra is most commonly represented indigo or bluish purple. But more than by its color, this chakra is characterized by the quality of its luminescence or soft radiance that reminds us of the moonlight.
The symbol of the third eye chakra has two elements associated with wisdom: An upside down triangle and the lotus flower.
What happens when your third eye/brow chakra is blocked or out of balance?
When your third eye/brow chakra is blocked it might feel difficult to trust your inner voice, learn new skills, or think with clarity. Physically, you might get headaches, dizziness, eye issues, and brain lesions. Delusions, disconnections with reality, and addictive behaviors can also be problems with your third eye chakra.
Balancing your third eye or brow chakra:
If you want to open this chakra and get more clarity, insight, and intuition, spend time focusing on your inner voice. Use self-reflection to create a plan for your life’s direction. You might try keeping a dream journal to track your inner thoughts and subconscious mind.
Clear Intuition supports your third eye/brow chakra by promoting the ability to “clearly see” through intuition. It helps quiet your conscious mind and encourage introspection.
To use this blend, you can add to a personal inhaler or diffuser. Putting a drop or two on a tissue and wafting it away from your nose is another fantastic way to enjoy the benefits of this blend. To apply this amazing aroma topically, dilute Clear Intuition to 1% in your favorite carrier oil. You can anoint the area of your third eye/brow chakra by massaging this intentionally in a clockwise direction.
Yoga for the brow chakra
Tap into your inner guidance and purpose by using Clear Intuition to activate the third eye or brow chakra. Apply it to the center of your forehead and settle into child’s pose. The affirmation is, “I am tuned into wisdom and understand the true meaning of life situations. Seeing the big picture.”
