Ananda and her chakras

Your Chakras

Chakras are energy centers. The word chakra is Sanskrit for wheel and represents one of seven main energy centers in the body. They correspond to nerve ganglia along the spinal column as well as body functions, states of consciousness, life stages, colors, and sounds.

Each shantea blend is formulated to balance and activate specific chakras, and help align the entire chakra system.

one — Red — Earth — Sexual Area — Physical Identity

chakra two — Orange — Water — Lower Belly — Emotional Identity

chakra three — Yellow — Fire — Solar Plexus — Ego Identity

chakra four — Green — Air — Heart — Social Identity

chakra five — Blue — Sound — Throat — Creative Identity

six — Purple — Light — Third Eye — Intuitive Identity

chakra seven — Magenta — Wisdom — Crown of The Head — Universal Identity
