Considered the king of flowers and the queen of the night, Jasmine is one of the world’s most popular aromatherapy tools.

However, many also call upon jasmine essential oil for metaphysical purposes such as opening and balancing the solar plexus chakra and attaining higher states of spirituality.
Jasmine Oil, the Solar Plexus Chakra and Adrenal Glands
Jasmine essential oil is depicted as the ‘Solar Plexus of Ra’ amid the Pyramid Texts of Saqqara. The Egyptians held strong beliefs that proper functioning of the major glandular systems in the body was essential to attain higher levels of health and consciousness. The solar plexus chakra is located right behind the navel where the adrenal glands are also located. The adrenals are your hormone powerhouse that regulates immunity, metabolism, the nervous system, stress responses and much more.
It is believed that imbalances in the sacral chakra can cause issues with the adrenals and also impede one from following their true will. Associated with the element of fire, a balanced sacral chakra allows one to feel warmth and comfort that associates confidence without ego or fear, strength without anger, and emotions without contingencies or expectations. As the essence of one’s will, balancing the solar plexus / navel chakra with jasmine oil can also provide one with an array of mind, body and spirit benefits.
