DIY Chakra Balancing Body Sprays

Namaste! Chakra balancing products are becoming very popular. Body sprays, essential oil roll-ons, perfume mists, bath salts and even healing stone jewelry are being used by a lot of folks in this hectic world we live in to balance their spirits, minds and energy fields.  I would like to contribute my seven recipes for Chakra Balancing Body Sprays. Once you create your base (essentially just distilled water and a dash of vodka) you can add in some specific essential oils to create balancing mists for each of the seven chakras.

Make your body spray base first. 

There are a couple of ways to make the body spray base. You can use simple distilled water with a little bit of vodka or you can use hydrosols.  If you choose hydrosols (aka floral waters) I suggest the following for each chakra.....

Root Chakra: Lemon Balm Hydrosol (buy it here)

Sacral Chakra: Clary Sage Hydrosol (buy it here)

Solar Plexus Chakra: Blood Orange or Neroli Hydrosol (buy it here)

Heart Chakra: Rose or Lemon Verbena Hydrosol (buy it here)

Throat Chakra: Chamomile Hydrosol (buy it here)

Third Eye Chakra: Lavender or Rosemary Hydrosol (buy it here)

Crown Chakra: Neroli or Lavender Hydrosol (buy it here)

You can purchase all these floral waters at Mountain Rose Herbs. Click HERE

If you choose to use the water/vodka blend, mix three parts distilled water and one part vodka together to make the body spray base. For example, if you want to make a four ounce bottle, use three ounces of distilled water and one ounce of vodka. You will need to shake the bottle very well before each use because the essential oils will float to the top as they are hydrophobic and don't play well with water.

Use before yoga, meditation or anytime you need to bring a sense of balance and peace to your world. 
I recommend that you use glass amber bottles with sprayers. Many of the essential oils used in the recipes can degrade plastic bottles. You can purchase glass bottles at Mountain Rose Herbs. 

When I make body mists I like to keep the essential oil dilution to just around 2% to 3%. These are not perfumes and should only be noticed in a very subtle and gentle manner. You are the only person that needs to know you are wearing them.  This is especially important if you are misting yourself before a group yoga class! If you make a four ounce bottle of product, you only need a total of 60 to 100 drops  of essential oils per bottle. "Your NOSE should be the only one that KNOWS"

There is no official hard science on which oils MUST or SHOULD be used for each specific chakra. However, it sorta makes sense that to balance the root chakra that heavy, earthy essential oils that come from roots, bark and plants that grow close to the ground would be balancing to the spiritual root center. 

For each particular chakra recipe, fill a four ounce bottle with either the hydrosol or the water/vodka mixture. Add in the following essential oils for each specific chakra blend. 


Sacral Chakra: 10 drops Sandalwood essential oil, 15 drops Sweet Orange essential oil, 5 drops Cardamom essential oil, 2 drops Neroli essential oil, 2 drops Ylang Ylang essential oil, 2 drops Patchouli essential oil, 5 drops Cardamom essential oil



Throat Chakra: 30 drops Lemon essential oil, 20 drops Eucalyptus essential oil, 15 drops Vanilla absolute or CO2.
