Symptoms of Energy Imbalance in the Throat Chakra

Nestled in our communication centre, the Throat Chakra empowers our authentic expression. Depleted energy here hinders our ability to speak our truth and communicate effectively. On the other hand, excess energy here creates an overflow that might lead to over-talking or harsh communication.

Restoring harmony within the Throat Chakra will nurture our authentic voice and foster clear communication. If you resonate with at least 3 ‘depleted’ or ‘in excess’ symptoms, then you may wish to explore practices to embrace balance in this expressive energy hub.

Essential Oil Practice for the Throat Chakra

Throat Chakra Essential Oil: Peppermint

Peppermint oil is a vocal ally for the Throat Chakra. Its cooling, refreshing nature supports clear communication and expression. Use Peppermint to amplify your voice, speak your truth, and express yourself authentically. Let the coolness of Peppermint invigorate your voice!

Practice: Vocal Release Exercise

Add a drop of Peppermint oil to a glass of warm water and use it for gargling. This can help clear your throat before engaging in vocal exercises or speaking engagements. Allow the refreshing sensation to clear any blockages and enable clear, authentic expression.
