A very ancient chakra, well documented in history. Situated between the eyebrows, it is connected to the pituitary within the brain. This chakra is also connected with intuition, imagination and inspiration. Physically it affects the pituitary gland. This is the 'mastergland' of the entire body, controlling the endocrine system (all hormones and their 'knock-on' effects). Dysfunction here may result in allergies, sinus problems, adenoid and eye/ear disorders, lack of energy and/or sex drive, nervous or hormonal disorders, skin conditions ie psoriasis, eczema, impetigo etc. One of the functions of the hypothalamus is temperature control, imbalance here may therefore result in hot/cold flushes and excessive perspiration.
The oils that I have chosen for this synergy provide an enormous boost of positive energy to this area, whilst incorporating a comforting sense of calm and clarity. The right path will be clear, and your intuition will again work. Follow your gut feelings/instincts on anything and everything in your daily routine and your life will take on a smoother less stressful quality. Remember, the very first thought is always right, don't let a 'what if' or a 'but' lead you away! For a healthy and open 3rd eye chakra its best to steer well clear of fluoride and amalgam fillings as both are neurotoxins which calcify your pineal gland, dumbing down your abilities.
This chakra is often needy during the autumn and wintertime. You may notice that the first flowers to appear in early spring are yellow (daffodils and primroses), purple (crocuses) and white (snowdrops). Nature is providing us with exactly the vibration that we need at this time of year. Often connected to the solar plexus. Please see this chakra's information, as if you have third eye symptoms then you will also benefit from Solar Plexus cream.
