4. Heart Chakra — Hawthorn Berry
The Heart Chakra (Anahata), is responsible for our ability to give and receive love. If you have an imbalanced Heart Chakra, you’ll struggle with problems such as:
- Resentment and hatred of others
- Lack of fulfilling relationships
- Suspicion and paranoia
- Lack of empathy/cold-heartedness
- Aggression and passive-aggression
- Self-victimisation and martyrdom
- Loneliness and isolation
- Mood swings
- Sadness and depression
- Trust issues
- Heart issues (high blood pressure, etc.)
The Heart Chakra is an important chakra to heal as it is often thought of as central to our well-being and is commonly referred to as the “Imperial Chakra.”
Hawthorn is a perfect choice for healing heart-centered problems. By itself, Hawthorn Berry has a sweet and slightly tart taste, almost like sour apple sauce.
Hawthorn Berry has been long used to treat heart problems related to Heart Chakra blockages such as angina, arrhythmia, and unstable blood pressure. Hawthorn Berry also helps remove bad cholesterol from the bloodstream, reduces anxiety, and has powerful antioxidant properties that remove free radicals from the body.
You might like to buy Hawthorn Berry in a tea blend, such as the certified organic box from Buddha Teas which is specifically made for the Heart Chakra. This tea blend is also infused with Rose Quartz and is 100% natural. You can buy yours here. (Alternatively, if you want to save money, you could try the bundle of seven chakra teas which is a beautiful way to instantly stabilize every chakra.)
5. Throat Chakra — Slippery Elm
The Throat Chakra (Vishuddha) is the center of self-expression and truth. If you have a blocked Throat Chakra, you’ll struggle with issues such as:
- Social anxiety
- Inability to express yourself
- Excessive inhibition
- Miscommunication in relationships
- Neck pain
- Throat problems
Slippery Elm tastes best when combined with other herbs as it is rather chalky by itself (check out Buddha tea’s mix). However, this shrub has important throat chakra cleansing benefits.
Slippery Elm is essentially tree bark from the Slippery Elm tree that is grounded into a fine powder. Traditionally, Slippery Elm has been used to heal throat conditions as it turns to gel once in contact with water, but it also has a wide range of other benefits. Slippery Elm helps to lubricate the stomach and intestines which help heal issues such as indigestion and stomach ulcers. This bark also supports the adrenal glands and reduces overall inflammation in the body.
You can buy a certified organic tea blend of Slippery Elm infused with the essence of Aquamarine right here. (Or, you might prefer to get the affordable and convenient bundle of seven chakra teas for complete mind-body clearing.)
6. Third Eye Chakra — Passionflower
Your Third Eye Chakra (Ajna), is the center of wisdom, insight, and knowledge. If you have a blocked Third Eye Chakra, you’ll struggle with problems such as:
- Having rigid and limiting beliefs
- Overly intellectual and strict emphasis on logic
- Living in a fantasy world with no basis in reality
- Poor focus
- Easily distracted
- Naivety and ignorance
- Lack of will power and self-discipline
- Loss of connection with intuition
- Obsessive compulsions (OCD)
- Mental illnesses such as depression and anxiety
Passionflower is the ideal herb for the Third Eye Chakra. Passionflower helps treat insomnia, anxiety disorders, depression, headache pain, and even drug withdrawal symptoms.
You might like to buy Passionflower in a tea blend, such as the certified organic box from Buddha Teas which is specifically made for the Third Eye Chakra. This tea blend is also infused with Sapphire and is 100% natural. You can buy yours here! (Otherwise, try the bundle of seven chakra teas. It’ll save you money.)
7. Crown Chakra — Lavender
Your Crown Chakra (Sahasrara), is your connection to higher consciousness and spirituality. If you have an imbalanced Crown Chakra, you’ll struggle with problems such as:
- Spiritual cynicism
- God Complex
- Spiritual materialism/addiction
- Disconnection from reality
- Restlessness and frustration
- Feeling lost
- Existential depression
One of the most uplifting and delightfully common chakra cleansing herbs out there for the Crown Chakra is Lavender.
Lavender is so easy to grow and harvest and has a wide range of benefits that help to open up the Crown Chakra. Lavender helps to soothe headaches, enhance psychological clarity, reduce anxiety and stress, calm the nervous system, improve sleep, and treat skin conditions such as psoriasis. Most notably, Lavender is full of antioxidants that help our bodies to lower damage caused by toxins and free radicals. In fact, Lavender actually helps the body to produce antioxidants!
If you want to try a tea specifically made for the Crown Chakra, you might like to check out Buddha Tea’s organic certified blend that is infused with the essence of Amethyst. Check it out here! (Or, you might prefer to get all chakra teas in one in the chakra bundle.)
Herbs are mother earth’s way of helping us to cleanse, balance, and strengthen our bodies. As a big tea drinker, I love nothing more than to sit down in nature with a nice herbal tea brewing in my hands. As an empath, I find that tea is a quick and potent way to wind down and check-in with the present moment.
