1st Best Choice

Plant Therapy - Frankincense

Frankincense is my go-to oil to use in my Women’s Circles and also before a meditation. It has a high spiritual frequency and it is regarded as Holy oil. 

It is believed to strengthen our spiritual connection and intuition which brings our Throat Chakra back into balance. This results in preventing reactivity, clarity to respond with grace, and encouraging clear speech.

For throat chakra healing, this oil is beneficial in cases of underactive thyroid. Supporting your health at a cellular level, Frankincense boosts immune function to help bridge the gap from hormones to the thyroid.

Rocky Mountain Oils - Eucalyptus

Whenever I’m hit with those fluey symptoms or persistent cough I pull out my trusty eucalyptus oil. It has been used to calm inflammation of the nasal passages, clear a sore throat, and sinuses. 

It is the perfect oil to treat all of those physical symptoms that could be due to a blocked throat chakra. Eucalyptus promotes the feeling of inner freedom and expansiveness. It opens inner space when we feel overwhelmed or constricted by our environment.

REVIVE - (Roman) Chamomile

This universal oil is one of the most versatile, it is warm and calming. Chamomile has been used for centuries as a sleeping aid and a way to take the edge off anxiousness. 

It supports the throat chakra by creating a safe container for self-expression. With its sedative nature, you can relax and sit with your thoughts, which then leads to less anxiety around expressing them.

Blends

Once you have a little play around with the single essential oils above, you can begin to look at blending different essential oils.

If you’re not into fussing around creating your own then not to worry! Various brands create their chakra blends already. I’ve listed a couple below to get you started.

Blend #1

Rocky Mountain oils - Chakra Blends

They have their own Chakra Blends, which come in two different ways.

You can either go for the Chakra Diffuser Kit which consists of 7, 5ml bottles for each chakra. While I was writing this they had a 40% off sale! Bring the price down to a lovely $83.95!

Or you can go for the Chakra Blends Roll-On Kit, all essential oils are mixed with 10% coconut oil so you don’t have to worry about irritation.

I love how they add the detail of a gemstone rollerball! Each chakra roll-on combines the therapeutic benefits of essential oils with the energetic properties of the chakra’s corresponding gemstone.

Buyers Guide

With the list above I’ve made it easier for you to source some quality essential oils, but It’s important to know that not all essential oils are created equally. There are a few key points to take into consideration before jumping in and purchasing your essential oils.

Just a quick scan of a company’s “About us” page will probably do the trick. How long have they been in business for? Do they promote sustainable practices? I also like to look for a sourcing page to see what the oils I buy come from

Ok this is a must guys! The company should 100% third party test their oils and better yet display their GC/MS results on their website for all to see.

All essential oils should be stored in an amber glass bottle to protect the oil from oxidation caused by sun exposure. Make sure the seal has not been opened or tampered with, and finally check for an expiry date.

No, no I’m only joking, put Duo Lingo away. You do want to make sure the Latin names of the plant are on the bottle though as some plants have various types. For example Lavender has Lavandula angustifolia and Lavandula latifolia so you want to make sure you’re getting the correct one!

It’s important to know that carrier oils are very different from essential oils. Some plants, like rose, are used to produce both essential oils and carrier oils. So remember, an essential oil is volatile, concentrated, watery and very fragrant, whereas a carrier oil will be thicker, safe for skin, with a mild smell.Toggle Content

This is in quotation marks for a reason! Unfortunately the essential oils industry is not regulated meaning anyone can write this on their labels. Be aware that just because a brand has this on their label, it does not mean they are of high quality.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

HOW CAN I UNBLOCK MY THROAT CHAKRA?

Other than using essential oils you can also try bringing more blue into your life as your throat chakra is linked to the colour blue. Stretches that open the area around your neck may help balance your throat chakra. A breathing technique called lion’s breath is believed to be beneficial for the throat chakra. It’s thought to help ease stress, get rid of toxins, and stimulate your throat and chest area. You can also use throat chakra stones in various shades of blue to help balance and unblock a blocked throat chakra.

WHAT SCENTS ARE ASSOCIATED WITH THE THROAT CHAKRA?

As well as the essential oils listed above, you can use Cypress, Rosemary, and Blue Tansy.

WHAT IS THE MOST SPIRITUAL ESSENTIAL OIL?

Frankincense is known as the “Oil of Truth”. The aroma of Frankincense assists in reducing our stress and bringing us to a deeper meditative state. As we release our day-to-day feelings, insecurities, and fears, we open ourselves to the spiritual realm of connection with the Self.

WHAT ESSENTIAL OILS HAVE THE HIGHEST VIBRATIONAL FREQUENCY?

Rose oil has the highest frequency at 320 MHz, frankincense has 147 MHz, lavender has 118 MHz, myrrh has 105 MHz, peppermint has 78 MHz and so on

WHAT OILS TO RUB ON A SORE THROAT?

Thyme, lavender, tea tree, eucalyptus, rosemary, lemon, peppermint, ginger and garlic essential oil all have soothing qualities for a sore throat.

I feel like I can talk from experience when it comes to the throat chakra and blockages. I’m sure I’m not the only one who has felt the frustration of not being able to voice your opinion out of fear of what people may think of you.

I used to be more on the side of keeping quiet, trying not to upset anyone with my true feelings. I would just let things ride out, pretending it doesn’t bother me too much. 

I wish I had known earlier about using essential oils for the throat chakra or just generally how to work on my blockages in this area. Of course, it’s all a work in progress, and finding your voice takes layers and layers of peeling.

Essential oils for the throat chakra
Massaging essential oils with a carrier oil around my neck to focus on my throat blockages.

I’ve found whilst meditating and using essential oils specific to the chakra I wish to connect with has helped me dive much deeper.

I do feel like I’m completely jumping the gun here though, let’s take it back to basics and start with what chakras are.

What is a chakra?

I’m sure if you’re here searching for essential oils to unblock your throat chakra you have a vague idea of what a chakra is. Just to be sure though, I’m going to give you a speedy run-through so everyone is up to date. Ready. Set. Go!

“Chakra (cakra in Sanskrit) means “wheel” and refers to energy points in your body. They are thought to be spinning disks of energy that should stay “open” and aligned, as they correspond to bundles of nerves, major organs, and areas of our energetic body that affect our emotional and physical well-being.”

Ok, ok I just referenced Healthline. At least we’re all clear now.

Why Is Chakra Balancing Important?

If our chakras are blocked our energy life force can’t flow freely, and this causes a blockage in one of our 7 chakras. It is important to make sure this energy is flowing as a blockage in any of them can cause physical and emotional manifestations, harming a person’s overall health. I use this as an opportunity to be more self-aware of emotional and physical behaviors. 

Your throat chakra

The 5th chakra is the throat chakra located at the base of the throat. It is governed by the color blue. Representing truthful and compassionate communication, it is all about expression and communication.

 It’s where you speak your truth and find your voice. 

Is your throat chakra unbalanced?

So are you speaking your truth? Do you ever feel like you have something you want to say but it just doesn’t seem to want to come out? We all can get stuck in situations where we can’t say what we feel, maybe out of fear of an authoritative figure or worried we may upset someone.

If your throat chakra is underactive you may be feeling like it’s hard to express your true feelings. You may become introverted or shy, timid or anxious.

If your throat chakra is overactive, you may develop an inability to listen to others and become overly critical or talkative and interruptive.

Physical problems that may arise include thyroid problems, trouble sleeping, hearing or throat issues, coughs, mouth ulcers, chronic sore throat, dental issues, and pain or tension in the jaw or neck.

How can essential oils help unblock your chakra?

Essential oils can have amazing powers on the body, mind, and soul. They are earth’s ‘medicine’ and each plant the oil comes from carries specific energetic frequencies. Due to each plant’s molecular composition, essential oils are easily absorbed by the skin. 

If we look at our bodies on an energetic level, the oil creates resonance in the cells of our body through their frequency achieving energetic balance.

How to use essential oils on your throat chakra

I’m always incorporating some sort of scent into my yoga or meditation practices, whether that’s incense, candles, or essential oils. 

There are many ways in which essential oils can be used from aromatherapy to topically. For a full list please check out my ‘How to use essential oils’ article.

I host monthly New Moon Women’s Circles and will pass around various essential oils before we begin a meditation, everyone takes a few deep inhales and then settles down. I’ve had some positive feedback from this! 

We focused on the throat chakra during the New Moon in Gemini Circle as the throat chakra plays a crucial role in aligning with Gemini’s energy, fostering effective communication and self-expression.

You can also use essential oils on your skin, to open up my throat chakra I mix my essential oil with a carrier oil, and with the intention to release any blockages, I begin to rub it into my chest and neck area. 

By adding an intention you will make it even more powerful! Through visualization, a prayer, or affirmation you can create a clear outcome that you are hoping to achieve.

You can also fill the room with the aroma of your chosen essential oil. I either put a few drops of essential oils in a diffuser or you can even put them in a candle if you’re after super simplicity.

You could even add 1 – 2 drops to water or tea and drink before or during practice. I’m not a big fan of taking essential oils internally though, I prefer to use fresh or dried herbs for this. 

DISCLAIMER

Not all essential oils are created equally, for this practice to be effective (especially if you’re taking oils internally) you need to make sure the products you use are of the highest quality.

I’ve been on a mission to try and test many essential oils so please take a look at my review articles if you’d like to make up your mind on which essential oil to use.

I believe the oils below to be of quality with ethical and sustainable practices.

Conclusion

Essential oils are a great support tool in healing our mind, body, and soul. By using the oils mentioned above we can open, balance, and clear our throat chakra.

These wonderful healing oils put us in a state where we can sit with ourselves and feel less anxious. This gives us a chance to feel safe and freely say what we think, without fear of ridicule. What a powerful place to be.
