I’ve compiled a list of chakra healing stones associated with each of the [supreme kwid=1096 kw=”7 chakra system” url=”http://www.divinitymagazine.com/chakrasystem/” cpfl=false]. Read below to see which stones to

For more in-depth look at each chakra system check out our article ” Chakra Systems Demystified“.
Base Chakra- Muladhara- Base of the spine
Physical Associations: Adrenal glands, kidneys, spinal column, back, hips and legs.
Spiritual Associations: Stability, security and grounding as well as courage and physical and emotional survival. When this chakra is off balance we tend to experience emotions of anxiousness, fearfulness, anger and frustration. Children or adults with high anxiety would benefit from root or base chakra meditation and balancing.
By using one of the following chakra healing stones or chakra gems on your root chakra, good health and vitality will return.
- Black Tourmaline
- Smoky Quartz
- Black Obsidian
- Fire Agate
- Blood Stone
Follow this process with grounding exercises: Take a walk on fresh cut grass, walk on a beach, or engage in gardening activities to reconnect you to nature. Always remember to drink lots of water to assist with detoxifying the system.
Sacral Chakra- Svadhisthana- Lower Abdomen to Navel
Physical Associations: Genital area, reproductive organs, bladder, bowel and lower intestine.
Spiritual Aspects: Creativity, harmony, emotional balance, passion, sexuality, freedom and expression of emotions.
An imbalance here would result in stiff lower backs, restlessness, confusion, and sexual blockages.
Place one of the following chakra healing stones in the lower abdomen area for 20 minutes while relaxing and maintaining a regular breath.
- Golden Beryl
- Orange Calcite
- Golden Topaz
Movement therapy will help to restore a graceful movement to the body as well as emotional intelligence and the ability to change.
Solar Plexus Chakra- Manipura- Below the ribs to above the navel
Colour: Golden Yellow
Physical Associations: Stomach, pancreas, and liver.
Spiritual Aspects: Personal power, strength, sense of self worth, transformation, courage and laughter, low self-esteem, no energy, poor digetion, and an attraction to stimulants (coffee, cigarettes, and other addictions) are some of the deficiencies of an unbalanced solar plexus.
To regain a balanced ego-strength and appropriate self-discipline use one of the following chakra healing stones:
- Golden Topaz
- Green-Yellow Tourmaline
- Tiger’s Eye
- Rutilated Quartz
Vigorous exercises, martial arts, grounding, and emotional contact are great for solar plexus chakra healing and balancing.
Heart Chakra- Anahata- Center of the chest
Physical Associations: Heart, lungs, and thymus gland
Spiritual Aspects: Unconditional love, forgiveness and compassion.
A person with an out of sync heart chakra will experience all sorts of emotional instability, self centeredness, and the immune system can also suffer.
People who ‘give to get’, keep score, constantly gossip about another, and verbally tear down another human being, or harm animals and nature, are not balanced in the heart chakra.
By working with following chakra healing stones and gems you could not only reclaim self-acceptance but also unconditional acceptance of others, fulfilling your right to love and be loved.
- Rose Quartz
- Pink Tourmaline
- Green Tourmaline
- Green Aventurine
- Gossular Garnet

Working with arms, reaching out and taking in, breathing exercises, pranayma and anima/animus integration will benefit the heart chakra.
Throat Chakra- Vishuddha- Throat Area
Physical Association: Mouth, throat, thyroid, and parathyroid glands.
Spiritual Aspects: Communication, truthfulness, expression of will power and creativity.
Congestion in the throat chakra will result in headaches, tension within the neck and shoulder muscles, colds, thyroid or hearing problems.
Using a Lapis Lazuli or one of these other chakra healing stones on the throat will ease the energy flow:
- Blue Lace Agate
- Blue Topaz
- Blue Tourmaline
- Blue Tourquoise
Singing, chanting and toning will also help release trapped energy.

Physical Associations: Pituitary gland, pineal gland, skull, eyes, brain, and nervous system.
Spiritual Aspects: Coordination, balance, mental clarity, clairvoyance, intuition, wisdom.
Not seeing things clearly? Blindness, headaches, nightmares, eyestrain, or blurred vision all relate to an inharmonious third eye chakra.
Take yourself on a visualization journey through a tranquil forest with Sapphire, Lavender Quartz or any one of the following chakra healing stones placed between your eyes to help re-manifest your ability to see clearly.
- Blue Tourmaline
- Purple Fluorite
Guided visualizations, meditation and visual stimulation, as well as working with the memory are all exercises that you should focus on.
Crown Chakra- Sahasrara- Top of the head
Physical Associations: Pineal gland, top of spinal cord and brain stem.

Cleansing and Programming Healing Chakra Crystals
Chakra healing stones or chakra crystals can be used like a storage battery for thought energy. “Clearing” deals with the energy of the stone or crystal. Chakra healing stones and crystals can also be “programmed” with our thought energy and then act as our subtle chakra energy fields. They can also help create situations in our life that will lead us in directions that allow for positive growth and healing.
Clearing a chakra healing crystal or gem stone is a simple process and the purpose is to ensure that there no left over negative energies from the person who owned it before you, which includes the store owners and employees that may have handled them.
Clearing is a way to personalize your Chakra healing stone and create a new energy bond between you and your new gem stone partner.
There are many ways you can clear your stone. Here are 3 of the easiest ways:
- Hold your new crystal under cold running water, and as the water pours over it, close your eyes and imagine all of the negative energies being washed away down the drain and out into the vast ocean to be purified by Mother Earth and the cycle of life.
- You can leave your chakra crystals in the warm sun and allow the power of its light to purify the crystal with “fire”.
- Place a teaspoon of sea salt into a bowl of water. Place your gem stone in the water and let it sit for an hour. Both sea salt and water are natural and allow for the release and balancing of energies.
To program your new chakra healing crystals, hold it in your hand, close your eyes, and in your imagination create an image of what you want your crystal to help you create.
Keep your chakra crystals close to your skin, and when you can’t wear them, store them in a special box or bag, which has also been purified and blessed. The more you fill your crystals with love, the more you will receive back threefold.
Chakra Healing Essential Oils
Just as colour, sound and healing stones have certain resonance
with the chakras, so do different plants and their essential oils.
Essential oils are the fragrant distilled essence of plants, and can be used to help balance the chakras.
Use the fragrance which most appeal to you and blend the pure essential oils with a carrier oil such as almond oil.
Essential Oils That Resonate With the Chakras
To balance the root chakra (base chakra) use corn, clematis, rosemary, ylang ylang, myrrh, frankincense, benzoin, patchouli, and/or sandalwood.
All citrus oils like neroli, melissa and orange. Also rose, hibiscus, jasmine, Indian Paintbrush, and Lady’s slipper.
Solar Plexus Chakra:
Yarrow, chamomile, peppermint, lemon, juniper, vetivert, petigrain, and marjoram.
Holly, poppy, rose, eucalyptus, and pine, bergamot, melissa, jasmine or rosewood.
Cosmos, trumpet vine, larch, blue chamomile, sage, lemongrass, geranium or hyssop.
Third Eye Chakra:
Wild oat, Queen Anne’s Lace, madia, rosemary, lavendar, peppermint, spruce, frankincense, patchouli, elemi, or clary sage.
Lotus, angelica, star tulip, frankincense, sandalwood, myrrh, jasmine, benzoin, neroli, lavendar, angelica, or St. John’s Wort.
How To Use Essential Oils For Chakra Balancing
The easiest and most direct way of using essential oils for chakra balancing is to rub a drop or two, blended with a carrier oil, onto the skin above the chakra you wish to treat.
You can also rub the oils into the palms of your hands, and then wave your hands through your aura, rather than placing the oil directly onto your skin. This will disperse any negative energy that may have collected in your aura. Swirl your hands first in a counter-clockwise motion to break up and dispel unwanted energies,then go clockwise to rebalance your aura.
You can also treat your environment by using an oil diffuser. An oil diffuser is a small ceramic piece with a shallow bowl shape at the top, and a hollow area underneath where you place a small candle. Place a little water and a few drops of essential oil in the shallow bowl and light the candle underneath. As the candle warms the bowl, the oil will begin to burn off and diffuse the air, purifying then environment of negative energies.
