Colour Chakras & Essential Oils in Alchemy
Using Colour Mirrors essences – a blend of colour energy and essential oils – to support our subtle energy body is one of my favourite ways to help empower Chakra balancing and enhance well-being holistically. I will give a brief overview of each chakra, tips on how to use oils to support each chakra and examples of my favourite combo of oils to support you on your chakra healing journey. Containing so many incredible constituents, most, if not all, can be used for multiple applications.
What I am sharing here relates to my personal and professional experience with clients. Most importantly, listen to the wisdom within your own body ~ use colour oils you feel called to use with any chakra, and trust your inner guidance. If not sure or in doubt, feel free to connect with me for a 30-minute complimentary session online or in-person in my Sanctuary of Colour in Cheshire, UK, or with a Colour Mirrors therapist near you.
The human energy system has 7 main chakras or energy centres, running along the spinal column, beginning at the base of the spine and weaving upwards to the crown of the head. These energy centres correlate to physical and subtle energetic aspects of the human, governing physical and subtle energy in particular areas of the body. For more in depth information on this subject, I suggest The Subtle Body: An Encyclopedia of Your Energetic Anatomy by Cyndi Dale.
“There are many definitions of chakra, but they all evolve from the Sanskrit meaning of the word: “wheel of light.” Most authorities agree that chakras are subtle energy centres that are located at the main branchings of the nervous system. They serve as collection and transmission centres for both subtle, or metaphysical, energy and concrete, or biophysical, energy.”
Simply defined: “A chakra is a circular-shaped energy body that directs life energy for physical and spiritual well-being.”
We can use essential oils with the intention of healing, and apply that intention to any area of our body. The actual oils themselves hold powerful chemical constituents that affect the physical and energetic systems of our bodies. Coupled with the power of our intention for healing, release, acceptance, peace, joy, etc. the oils support us on both the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual planes of existence.
Mini Chakra Set
Colour Mirrors Chakra oils have long been popular for supporting the physical body. This mini set enables you to have all 8 of the Chakra oils (C1-C8) in one portable package. The mini chakra bottles are exact replicas of the larger oils but have the added benefit of having a roll-top which means you can apply them directly to the chakras or pulse-points. The oils correspond with the traditional chakra colours so that C1 is red for the base chakra, C2 is orange for the sacral, C3 is yellow for the solar plexus, C4 is green for the heart, C5 is blue for the throat, C6 is indigo for the third eye, C7 is violet for the crown and C8 is magenta for the Soul Star (an additional chakra in the system of Colour Mirrors that connects us directly with our Spiritual self/Higher Power/Source).
General Usage Suggestions
One of the ways when Aromatherapy in alchemy with Colour Therapy is most effective is when focusing on pulse points. If you are on the go and in need of five minutes of mindfulness we often suggest using one of our Mini Chakra Roller Balls on your pulse points to enjoy the benefits of Colour therapy + essential oils while you’re on your travels and at any time during the day. Each one of our blended essences are formulated to serve a purpose; it helps improve your mood, balances and creates energy flow in your chakra while also giving you a moment to yourself wherever you are.
- Apply to palms and inhale (aromatic)
- Apply to pulse points ~ wrists, inside of elbows, behind ears, etc. (topical)
- Apply on body at location of chakra
- Apply to soles of feet (topical)

The portable, roll-on set of mini chakra oils is perfect for daily use or to take when travelling. Equally, the Mini Chakra Set is not only suitable for adults but also used with children and young people. ChriSOULa Sirigou runs Colour Therapy for Kids workshops for parents and families to help them use Colour as a diagnostic tool to identify emotional status of their children as well as as a chakra balancing tool when under exam stress or other health symptoms.
The Colour Mirrors ‘Kids’ mini-sets are a must-have for parents, teachers, therapists and anyone needing to connect with their inner child! They are made up of the same 8 mini roll-top bottles as the mini-chakra sets for adults but with an additional super colour cardboard sleeve to appeal to kids and information on the back about which emotion each of the bottles relates to for a quick, handy guide for kids and their parents or teachers.
Children relate instinctively to colour and often respond quickly and positively to the energies of the bottles. They can choose whichever colour is calling them most then roll the oil directly from the bottle into hands, palms, feet or on to the body. Small and portable they are ideal for beside the bed, popped in a school bag or for a bath-time treat.
