|Make your body spray base first. |
Root Chakra: Lemon Balm Hydrosol
Sacral Chakra: Clary Sage Hydrosol
Solar Plexus Chakra: Blood Orange or Neroli Hydrosol
Heart Chakra: Rose or Lemon Verbena Hydrosol
Throat Chakra: Chamomile Hydrosol
Third Eye Chakra: Lavender or Rosemary Hydrosol
Crown Chakra: Neroli or Lavender Hydrosol
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.
