Heart Chakra; Open Your Heart to Healthier Skin

Heart Chakra; Open Your Heart to Healthier Skin

The heart chakra, also called Anahata, is the center chakra connecting the three physical chakras: root, sacral, and solar plexus, with the three spiritual chakras: throat, third eye and crown. Heart chakra is linked to the lungs, heart, breasts, cardiac plexus, and thymus gland. It is known for ruling the lymphatic system which plays a vital role in our immune system. 

When the heart chakra is balanced there is calmness and a higher level of love and compassion. This doesn’t mean you will allow others to walk all over you, however it enables you to remain at a better level of forgiveness and happiness and give yourself permission to move on while not allowing other’s actions hold you hostage. When there is an imbalance one can feel angry, overwhelmed with grief, hatred towards others and self, fearful of betrayal in relationships, and depression. Holding grudges becomes natural while letting go is at a distance. Physical symptoms of a closed or imbalanced heart chakra can manifest as heart disease, allergies, and asthma. The lymphatic system becomes compromised creating vulnerability in the immune system. 

How does a closed or overactive heart chakra compromise skin? 

When the immune system is weakened the body’s response is inflammation. Inflammation can cause eczema, skin allergies, acne and blemishes. Your skin is the largest organ and its job is to protect the body so it is important to care for it, pamper it, and keep it clean and clear of toxins. Now you know how the heart chakra affects skin wellness, let’s talk about how to keep it balanced. There are many ways to balance the heart chakra, below are just a few quick and easy ways.

Chakra rollers. 

Next time your heart chakra is imbalanced or closed, pick up your chakra roller to help get it balanced! They are easy to use and can fit in your pocket or purse for on the go balancing. A bonus in using a chakra roller is they smell amazing and can act as a gentle aromatherapy throughout your day. 

Add a splash of color. 

Emerald green is the color associated with this chakra, so wear some green or add it to your décor! 


Rose quartz, jade, emerald, and malachite are a few stones/crystals attached to the heart chakra. You can keep one on or near you and enjoy the many healing benefits of these stones/crystals. 

Add aromatherapy to your balancing ritual

Cedarwood and eucalyptus are among my favorite blends. 


Yep, it is that easy and fun to do. Let your inner child take over and have some fun. Add a splash or two of laughter, a few friends/family of you like and play. Don’t forget to laugh until your cheeks become numb and your stomach hurts, you won’t regret it. 


Join a chakra balancing yoga class or two. Allow the flow to balance your heart chakra. It is a soft way to exercise while balancing your chakras.
