Each chakra is an energy center that, just like any other area of your body, needs attention and support to maintain feeling balanced and fully functional.
The heart chakra energy center is your source for love, for both yourself and others, and your spiritual connection.
The heart chakra is the center of love both for yourself and others. When it is in balance you're able to give and receive love unconditionally. When it is out of balance, you're either unable to love unconditionally, or are too dependent on others to justify your love, which causes some people to become co-dependent on very unhealthy levels.
The heart chakra is located in the center of your chest, just above your heart.
The color associated with the heart chakra is Green.
One of my favorite ways to help keep our chakras in balance is using essential oils. Why? Chakras are essentially energy centers in your body, and essential oils carry specific energetic frequencies. When you look at your body on an energetic level, these frequencies tune in with each other to achieve an energetic balance.

How to use essential oils for opening your heart chakra
To use essential oils for your heart chakra, you may diffuse or dilute and apply your oils topically to your skin. I recommend applying over your chest, on the palms of your hands, your ear's tragus, and on the upper arches of your feet, where they merge into the balls of your feet.
I personally LOVE wearing diffuser necklaces and occasionally wear diffusing bracelets. You can find my favorite beautiful diffusing jewelry mentioned in our guide to diffusing jewelry.
While using your oils to help open your heart chakra, take some time to meditate or focus on a few affirmations, such as:
I forgive myself and others for past mistakes, and love myself and others unconditionally. I'm worthy of unconditional love, and am open to receiving loving experiences from the Universe.
It also helps to make the affirmation more personal by replacing “I” with your first name, or to speak it to yourself while making eye contact with your reflection.
