Essential oils are powerful tools to be used in helping us to align the energy of the Solar Plexus chakra. Before starting using essential oils it’s essential to understand what Solar Plexus is about. This chakra basically represents the measure of a degree of control in our daily life; it also represents the vibration which aligns our consciousness to the feeling of knowing of our position in life.
The element of Solar Plexus is fire, it’s located just above the navel around our solar plexus area; and it’s also associated with our adrenal glands and pancreas. It’s all about self-identification. Solar Plexus represents our self-esteem, will power, self-identity, courage, control.

We also have good digestion, not just physical but also emotional and spiritual, ability to digest information we receive from the outside world.
