8 Chakra-Inspired Products for a Healthy and Balanced You
Your chakras are the energy centers of your body that hold your spiritual power. There are seven main chakras that begin at the base of your spine (root chakra) and rise up through the crown of your head (crown chakra), and each is associated with a color from red at the root chakra and up through purple at the crown chakra. The colors directly correspond to the functionality of the nerves within that chakra. For instance, when you wear blue or carry a blue healing crystal, you are actually igniting your throat chakra. Your chakras can become unbalanced due to a variety of factors in your daily life, but thankfully there are many practices and products that can help you realign your chakras, center your body, and bring balance to your life overall.
Here are 8 products that are inspired by your body’s chakra system:

Confused Girl in the City Abundant Leggings ($72)

The polyester/lycra-blend material is extra soft and comfortable, and the fold-over waist is cute and functional. Despite the thin material, the leggings aren’t sheer, even in forward folds.

The leggings are printed with water-based ink and feature 4-way stretch, moisture wicking, and breathable fabric. The company offers a variety of other healing crystal-inspired leggings, so you are sure to find your favorite stone in the mix.

Or, you can choose from Raga Varnish’s variety of other chakra-inspired colors to pinpoint any of your chakras that are in need of a little TLC.
In addition to your yoga and meditation practice, you can utilize these products to help balance your chakras and increase your physical and mental wellbeing. If you are ever feeling out of sorts or unbalanced in any way, consider which part of your body is not feeling right and consider chakra therapy or corresponding healing crystals as a remedy. If you are feeling mentally blocked, wear or carry purple items that correspond to your crown chakra. If you are heartbroken or feeling emotionally conflicted, wear pink or green for your heart chakra. If you are feeling airy, unsettled or insecure, wear red for your root chakra.
Whether you just appreciate the color and design of chakra-inspired products or you turn to them for your health and wellbeing, chakra products are beautiful and are said to have many positive healing properties, so wear your energy on your sleeve and create a powerful shift in your physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual energy.
