Pictured: The Solar Plexus Chakra
As the days get shorter, and the sun’s bright Summer rays lesson, this Solar Plexus Chakra Essential Oil Spray can provide a bright splash of warm aromatic pleasure to heat up a cool day. “What is the solar plexus?” you ask. First off, there are seven chakras, like energy wheels, located in our body. These chakras represent hierarchic but equally important components of your life. The solar chakra, associated with the color yellow, is located near our navel, and helps you to focus on your purpose in life. This chakra is like your shining sun and revolves around the question, “Why am I here?” To enliven this chakra, embrace the color yellow. Wear yellow clothes, accent your home with yellow, eat yellow food, and choose aromatic scents that have a yellow air.
Here are some Solar Plexus Chakra aromas that may help lead us towards the light: our destiny in life.
- Cypress – grounding yet light
- Lemon – sunny * yellow * bright
- Lemon Balm – happy * easy to grow
- Lemongrass – warm yet deep
- Anise – warm * sweet * spicy * earthy
- Vanilla – warm * homey
- Helichrysum – complex * deep yet light

Solar Plexus Chakra Essential Oil Spray Ingredients
- 20 drops of lemon essential oil
- 30 drops of petitgrain essential oil
- 10 drops of rose geranium essential oil
- 20 drops of cypress essential oil
- 4 ounces of vodka alcohol or fractionated coconut oil
- 1/4 tsp of liquid castile soap
- 1 four ounce glass spray bottle
Solar Plexus Chakra Essential Oil Spray Instructions
Drop the essential oils into a 4 ounce spray bottle. Shake. Then add the alcohol or carrier oil along with the liquid soap.* Shake, then allow to set for a few days. After the spray has set for a few days, test the aroma by spraying one squirt on a piece of paper and wafting the paper in the air by your nose. Add up to 10 more drops of the different essential oils depending on how you would like to change the aroma. If you would like it lighter, add more lemon. To make it smell fresher, add more petitgrain. Or, if you would like it deeper, at more cypress. And, if you would like it more feminine, add more geranium. Then let it set for a few more days.
Adults, spray one or two sprays on your wrists and arms to enjoy a sunny fresh aroma. Discontinue use if irritation occurs. Avoid sun exposure with pressed essential oils on the skin such as lemon.
*This perfume spray can be made with either alcohol or fractionated coconut oil as the carrier for the essential oils. While everclear alcohol provides a non-greasy spray, fractionated coconut oil is a very light oil and melds into the skin nicely.
