Crystals and Chakras Meet Ayurveda

The fantastic book Ayurveda & Aromatherapy  by Dr. Light Miller, ND and Bryan Miller, DC  inspired me to create a list of how the main chakra stones influence our energy forces or “Doshas”.  In the science of Ayurveda, there are basically three energy forces or “Doshas” made up of a combination of the universal elements;

Ether/Air = Vata
Fire/Water = Pitta
Water/Earth = Kapha

Although we have a mixture of the three Doshas, each one of us has a prominent energy force.  When our Doshas are in balance, we are healthy physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually.  Genuine gemstones are also created with vibrational energy forces. Chakra gemstone crystals emanate specific positive energy that can influence and nourish our Doshas. Here is a list of some main Chakra Gemstones and how they affect and protect our life’s energy forces.
