The word “chakra” comes from Sanskrit, and means “disk” or “wheel.” Chakras are energy centers in the body that correlate to certain psycho-emotional functions. They each correspond to certain nerve groups and major organs in the body.
Ritual candles have been used for centuries in many different cultures as a way to cleanse the mind, body, and spirit. Candles are a beautiful and powerful way to create balance in your life and improve your mood. Different smells and colors of the candles correspond to the seven chakras, or energy centers, in the body. Each smell and color has a different vibration that can help to heal and balance the corresponding chakra.
Your benefits of using natural candles
By using the power of the chakras you will be able to provide your body with all necessary vibrations. At the same time, the normal functioning of all biochemical processes will continue to work in the right way. The balance between all organs and systems will be connected. Your body will become younger, vital activity will rise. Memory and intelligence also be improved. Love for yourself, love for people, love for nature.
Remember, the results of these actions do not come instantly. More often you have to wait patiently to see the results. But the right aromatic chakra candles will speed up the result, which is manifested in the process of burning.
