In the Know
Known as ajna, the center of insight and intuition, the third eye chakra is located between the eyebrows, and, sometimes is described as being located behind the eyes, in the middle of the head. This chakra is the main point of intuition, focus, knowledge, and when attuned, can assist with comprehending the big picture. An imbalance of this chakra may lead to poor decision-making, self-doubt, and self-deception. When not balanced, this chakra will also likely cause sleep disturbances, as it is associated with the pineal gland, where sleep is regulated. If you desire cultivating mystical experiences, it is suggested that working with the third chakra can help take you there. A useful affirmation to concentrate on while meditating with this chakra is: I see.

The Gemstone Essence Process
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 is 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.
