My voice is necessary.
I express myself with clear intent.
Creativity flows in and through me.
The throat chakra, located at your throat/neck area, is our center for communication and creativity. Sounds, rhythm, vibration, and words are powerful rulers over our everyday lives that we oftentimes take for granted. From the first cries of a baby just being born, to the tunes we play as we're driving down the freeway, we are immersed in different forms of communication.
This is the first chakra as we start to move our way up that transcends the ordinary limitations of the physical body. We can call and talk to someone a world away without going there physically, transcending time and space as casually as if we see them face-to-face each day. We can read the writings of those who are no longer on this earth, hear about how life was thousands of years ago through fossils and deciphering symbols. Communication shapes our reality.
When this chakra is imbalanced, we may experience sore throat, stiffness in the neck, thyroid problems, hearing issues, colds, and problems with teeth, gums, or jaw.
When the throat chakra is balanced, we are able to be good listeners, communicate clearly with ease, live creatively, express ourselves clearly, and be comfortable in our body language.

-Spearmint (Oil of Confident Speech) is my go to for balancing my throat chakra and giving me confidence when I speak in front of crowds or do a video. I swish spearmint around in my mouth, put a drop in my water, or mix it with a carrier oil and apply it to my neck/throat area
-Lavender (Oil of Communication) can help release blocked communication, constriction, fear of rejection, and feelings of being unseen and unheard. Massage this oil into the bottoms of your feet at nighttime or put a couple of drops in an epsom salt bath for relaxation and throat chakra balancing
-Oregano (Oil of Humility & Non-Attachment) helps support any yucky throat issues going on, and helps to balance an overactive throat chakra. Apply this one to your throat and bottoms of the feet when you're feeling imbalanced; finding yourself talking excessively, stuttering, gossiping, talking loudly, interrupting, and the like.
