In the Know
Swadhisthana the Sanskrit word meaning “one’s own abode,” is an apt definition for an energy center focused on personal pleasure. Encased in this description is the essence of water, which extends idealistically to the concepts of flow, flexibility, and dare we say fun!
The 2nd chakra is named sacral chakra for a reason, as it is located in the lower abdominal region, and “inner pelvis,” as some describe. Ensuring the health of Svadhisthana should be a priority to those who might be feeling stuck in a cycle of low energy, depression, or even workaholic tendencies. Those with digestive, urinary and kidney issues, and low back trouble, as well as those who consistently find themselves in challenging relationships, or no relationships, should consider putting attention on healing this chakra.

Moonstone: Often associated with fertility and sensuality, moonstone encourages us to go with the flow. This iridescent gemstone, often white, but also orange, pink, and even gray, is known to offer both protection and healing, helping to inspire a sense of calm, and relax erratic and irrational emotional responses.
Herbs and Essence
Extracting an “essence” of a stone may sound woo-woo to those unfamiliar with using such an inanimate object when intending mental, emotional, or physical healing. However, for thousands of years, people have indeed utilized gemstones and crystals for this exact purpose. Whether practitioners place the stones on the subject’s body while conducting a session, or a person wears jewelry containing a particular stone, or even carries one or more in a pocket, using stones and crystals to facilitate wellbeing is definitely not new, and most assuredly not as esoteric as you might think.
In crafting our Chakra Tea line, our production team places the desired gemstone or crystal inside the container of dried herbs, where its essence in actually infused in the blend. In this way, while enjoying the benefits of the herbal infusion, you also take in the healing properties of the accompanying stone.
