What are chakras?
In brief, the chakras are energy points within the subtle body that vibrate and radiate energy. This is a concept from ancient India, first mentioned in the Vedas around 4000 years ago. Each chakra is said to represent elements of our character, instinct and emotion, and when healthy and ‘open’ serve to create harmony within our souls and lives. When blocked, inactive or overactive, the chakras create problems on many levels from physical to emotional. To learn more about the chakras and their meanings, visit our special studio blog.
So how can a spray help?
