7 Teas to Balance Your Chakras

Many people don’t think about optimizing their energy or emotions using tea but it’s a very easy way to increase the types of things you want in life or decrease the things you don’t want. You can address anger, fatigue, anxiety, and you can build confidence, creativity, or intuition all just by drinking tea. By knowing which emotions link to which chakra, you can pinpoint which herb is best for you throughout the day. Maybe you keep an herbal arsenal in your bag or desk drawer to help you as you need it.

If you’re new to the chakras, we will help you get to know them a little better. They are essentially a bundle of nerves that stimulate certain emotions. You have seven main chakras in your body which run from the base of the spine to the top of the head. These energy centers can become blocked for a number of reasons, so balancing them is something we just keep doing our whole life. If you feel off or feel like you’re struggling in an area of life, you can look to the chakra linked to the emotion or area of life you’re feeling blocked and work on balancing it.

To make the chakra balancing more effective, you can also set your intention to build or release a type of energy as you drink the tea. You may choose to visualize a ball of light the color of that chakra spinning in a healthy manner as you drink the tea as well. Your thoughts will help send more energy to that area and stimulate the flow of energy there. There are many forms of chakra healing that are much more expensive which involve an energy healer focusing on sending healing energy to your chakras and while that is absolutely helpful, you can also do a lot on your own.

Here are the colors associated with each chakra and where they are in the body:

  • Root Chakra (Red): Base of Spine
  • Sacral Chakra (Orange): Reproductive Organs, Lower Stomach
  • Solar Plexus Chakra (Yellow): Upper Stomach and Diaphragm
  • Heart Chakra (Green): Heart, Chest, and Lungs
  • Throat Chakra (Blue): Neck and Mouth
  • Third Eye Chakra (Purple): Brow Point
  • Crown Chakra (White): Top of Head/Above the Head

Root Chakra: Dandelion Tea

The Root chakra deals with our feelings of safety, our ability to provide for ourselves, having a stable home as well as good energy. If you want to be more grounded and practical as well as have a strong life force energy, this tea can help you activate this energy center which is located at the base of the spine. Dandelion also helps detox the liver and kidneys, helps digestion, settles the stomach and reduces muscle pain. Dandelion is used to produce breast milk but not recommended for those with low blood pressure. Having pain in your lower back or hip may indicate a block in this chakra. It’s high in potassium, vitamin C, and iron.

Sacral Chakra: Ashwagandha Tea

The Sacral chakra is linked to our intimacy and creativity. It can be linked to addiction when it’s unbalanced. Emotions such as anger and shame can block this chakra. It can help you handle mood swings and stress. This chakra may be blocked if you’re experiencing health problems with your reproductive organs as well. Ashwagandha is a hormone balancing herb that is also a natural aphrodisiac which can help to awaken the creative passion in an individual. It is an adaptogenic herb that also helps you feel strong and reduces inflammation in the joints.

Solar Plexus Chakra: Cinnamon Tea

The Solar Plexus chakra is linked to our motivation, leadership abilities, confidence and sense of humour. If we are being shy, pessimistic, controlling, aggressive, or lazy, it is out of balance. Additionally, if we have health problems with our stomach such as ulcers, poor absorption, indigestion, or nausea, it could indicate a block in this chakra. Cinnamon is a warming herb that helps build our inner fire and boost digestion. It is an anti-inflammatory and a strong antioxidant. It helps control blood sugar and is a good source of fibre and calcium.

Heart Chakra: Rose Tea

The Heart chakra is linked to our ability to love ourselves and others unconditionally. It becomes blocked when we are holding grief and sadness. If we experience codependency or jealousy as well as being unable to open up, there is a block in this chakra. Additionally, health conditions related to the immune system, heart, lungs, and arms can indicate a block. Rose is mildly sedative and anti-inflammatory. Energetically, is helps with self-love and is known to help attract love by healing our vibration. It helps you heal a broken heart which you can experience after losing someone or a stressful life event.

Throat Chakra: Anise Tea

The Throat chakra allows for a healthy sharing of ideas and clear communication. It allows you to bring your gifts and talents to the world. When it’s blocked, we either overshare or under share. This could mean we lie and gossip or we are passive and vague. Physical health issues with your mouth, throat, neck, and shoulders indicate a block in this chakra. Anise is helpful for protecting you from negative energy which can cause you to either speak negatively or be afraid to speak. It will help sore throats, coughs, and congestion as well as aid in digestion and reduce an upset stomach.

Third Eye Chakra: Mugwort Tea

The Third Eye chakra is the area linked to spiritual wisdom and intuition. It is linked to your memory and mental clarity. If you feel unable to make a decision, struggle with memory loss, or feel generally confused, this chakra is blocked. Additionally, vision problems, headaches, and earaches indicate a block. Mugwort helps open the Third Eye and can allow you to see through your sixth sense. It brings more active dreams to help you connect to your intuition and will allow you to start to sense the intentions of others. It heightens the imagination so you can visualize more vividly and connect to spiritually healing dimensions of perception. Mugwort also helps circulation, regulates menstruation, helps calm anxiety, and helps the liver.

Crown Chakra: Lavender Tea

The Crown chakra is linked to feelings of being connected to your soul and to the spirit realm. It allows you to access states of pure peace and move beyond the fear of death. Depression, isolation, and mental health conditions often indicate a block in this chakra. Skin conditions and hair loss also indicate a blockage. Lavender is calming and soothing, allowing you to get into a healing vibration. It can help move energy from the lower chakras to the upper triangles so that you can experience happiness and joy. It is also good for PMS, stress, and inflammation.

Closing Thoughts…

A great blend of herbs for each chakra is available through Buddha Teas. If you want to approach your healing in a methodical way, work on one chakra each week. Have fun with it and incorporate yoga poses that target each chakra as well as crystals and colors. This more focused approach can really help you see the effects take place and experience deep healing. When you have an intention for a week, you will come to new realizations about your own thought patterns and see what you can shift. This empowering practice can be implemented without stopping everything in your life too. You can spend a little bit of time each day on healing and start to step into a more positive vibration.

You can make each month a process of healing and see how much progress you make. Think about how to incorporate nutrition and wellness into your chakra unblocking. Having some healing therapies like Reiki, massage, or sound baths, as well as a good range of nutrients in your daily diet can help. Look to certain foods that help each chakra if you’d like and it will help your healing process. The results will be astounding because when you focus your energy and mind on the desired outcome, you fuel it with the power of the Universe. Remember this, when you focus on love, the vibration starts to become you and your life will be infused with it.
