Chakra candles are a type of candle used in spiritual and energy healing practices, particularly in the context of chakra balancing and meditation. Chakras are believed to be energy centers within the body, according to various Eastern spiritual traditions, including Hinduism and Buddhism. There are seven main chakras, each associated with specific colors, qualities, and areas of the body.
Chakra candles are typically designed to align with the colors associated with each chakra. Here's a brief overview of each chakra and its associated color:
- Root Chakra (Muladhara) - Red: Located at the base of the spine, this chakra is associated with stability, security, and grounding.
- Sacral Chakra (Svadhisthana) - Orange: Located in the lower abdomen, this chakra is connected to emotions, creativity, and sensuality.
- Solar Plexus Chakra (Manipura) - Yellow: Situated in the upper abdomen, this chakra represents personal power, self-confidence, and willpower.
- Heart Chakra (Anahata) - Green or Pink: Located in the chest area, this chakra is associated with love, compassion, and forgiveness.
- Throat Chakra (Vishuddha) - Blue: Situated in the throat, this chakra represents communication, self-expression, and truth.
- Third Eye Chakra (Ajna) - Indigo or Purple: Located between the eyebrows, this chakra is associated with intuition, insight, and inner wisdom.
- Crown Chakra (Sahasrara) - Violet or White: Located at the top of the head, this chakra represents spiritual connection, enlightenment, and higher consciousness.

Chakra candles are often used during meditation and energy healing practices to help balance and align these energy centers. People may choose a candle that corresponds to a specific chakra they want to work on, or they may use a set of seven candles to represent all the chakras.
During a chakra meditation or healing session, individuals may focus on the corresponding chakra while meditating with the candle's light and color. This practice is believed to help open and balance the chakras, promoting physical, emotional, and spiritual well-being.
Chakra candles are just one tool used in chakra balancing and energy healing practices. They are often used in conjunction with other techniques such as meditation, yoga, aromatherapy, and crystal healing to achieve a holistic approach to well-being.
