In January 2013, we introduced our CHAKRA Pillows as an aid while working to balance the Chakras, or Energy Centers of the body. Our pillows contain our own unique blends of herbs and essential oils combined with flax seed. These blends are formulated to work with specific Chakras (energy centers) to help achieve and maintain balance. You can place them on the corresponding Chakra, hold in your hands or lap during meditation, place under your pillows when sleeping or just carried on your person. The Chakra pillows are approximately 4” x 4” with a removable & washable cotton cover in either Traditional Colors or patterns that represent our interpretation of the Chakras. The pillows can be used on their own or in conjunction with our Chakra Oils.
Our Chakra oils contain essential oil blends we originally formulated and fine tuned during our training as Reiki Masters. We have used our blends with great success over the last 12 years as Reiki Master Practitioners. The Chakra oils can used during a Reiki session or meditation, as well as a daily perfume oil, to help achieve and maintain balance within the Chakras. Can be used directly on the area of the corresponding energy center or on the pulse points.
