The Swadhisthana Chakra is a vortex of energy located between the belly button and the genitals. It is related to your creativity, sensuality, sexuality and intimacy.  When you gently awaken, cleanse, balance, and nurture this chakra, you will awaken your sexuality and reap immense benefits. Here are a few easy ways to do just that:

  1. Burn some essential oils: citrus oils, rose, hibiscus, and jasmine all nourish the Swadhisthana chakra best.
  2. Indulge in some luscious tropical fruits like melons, mangoes, passion fruit, papaya or coconut. (Or treat yourself to a Bahama Mama Smoothie!)
  3. Sip on some cinnamon or vanilla tea with a spoonful of honey.
  4. Tap into energetics by keeping a carnelian, orange tourmaline, or citrine gemstone in your pocket near the groin area.
  5. Practice some yoga and incorporate extra spinal twists and hip openers such as the half spinal twist, open angle pose, bound angle pose, and pigeon pose.
  6. Take a dip in the sea or in another nearby body of water to activate the Swadhisthana’s water element!

But remember, nothing is more sexy and will awaken your sexuality more than self-love :)
