The word chakra means "wheel" in Sanskrit, and its origin are based strongly within Hinduism. Chakras are energy centres within the human body that help to regulate organ function, immune system and emotions. There are 7 main chakras that are located in alignment with the spine - Root, Sacral, Solar Plexus, Heart, Throat, Third Eye and Crown.
As the new coronavirus (Covid-19) spreads through the globe and new cases arise every day, it is normal to feel fear, anxiety, or at the very least worry and concern. Companies are requesting employees to work from home, and items such as face masks, sanitisers, and toilet rolls are getting out of stock.
Prolonged stress and anxiety can weaken our body’s system and cause our chakra to be blocked. When one or more of the chakras is blocked, it will result in an imbalance that can be manifested as illnesses in the body. It is therefore important to stay calm and keep our chakras balanced in such a dire situation.
Essential oils can be used to balance the Chakras and strengthen the immune system by reducing stress levels and calming the nervous systems. HYSSES essential oils are 100% pure, free from synthetic fragrances, petrochemicals, and unnecessary fillers.
