Base Chakra

It is with great sadness that we have to anounce that Crystal Alchemy no longer ship Essences outside of South Africa. The local laws have become so strict with regards to shipping of liquids and even homeopathic pillules. Parcels are simply returned and don't even leave South Africa. The only other way to get essences to our international clients is with a courier service, but unfortunately this is too expensive for most people. If you would like to try the courier route, contact us directly and we'll see what we can do.

The Base Chakra is located in the perineum, which is the area between the genitals and the anus. Although no endocrine organ is placed here, it relates to the adrenal medulla, responsible for the fight-or-flight response when survival is under threat. Key issues involve sexuality, lust and obsession. Physically, the Base Chakra governs sexuality, mentally it governs stability, emotionally it governs sensuality, and spiritually it governs a sense of security.

This crystal essence has been specially created using a crystal configuration to balance and help develop the Base Chakra. It assists in strengthening survival instincts and instilling feelings of security. It promotes independence and a good sense of one's own power, while reducing hyperactivity, fear, and vengeful feelings. This essence strives to balance and heal attachments to one's mother, and past and present lovers.
