Hailing from ancient fossilized tree sap, pure red amber oil is filled with strong fire and earth vibrations, making it an ideal essential oil to work with the base / root / first chakra in addition to healing a variety of physical and spiritual ailments. Red amber oil (a.k.a. red ambar) boasts a warm, resinous scent that rich and earthy which is especially fragrant and long lasting when warmed. These qualities are what make amber oil one of the most common additions to many of the world’s most expensive designer fragrances.
However, this ancient Egyptian oil has profound effects on the base chakra, which governs your life force and survival instincts to serve as the powerhouse of the mind, body, and spirit. Those who have blockages or imbalances in the root chakra tend to lack positive energy and have fear-based reactions and shame-based insecurities—red amber oil can help!
Red Amber Oil’s Connection to the Base Chakra
Ancient Egyptian Red Amber Oil is described as one of the Seven Sacred Oils within The Pyramid Texts of Saqqara and is referenced as being ‘The Base Set.’ Set was a noted Neter in ancient texts, and this suggests the importance that the ancient Egyptians placed upon the sacredness of maintaining balance and vitality amid the ‘base’ energy center and indicates that amber oil is a potential key to restoration and proper functioning of the root chakra.
Amid the Texts of Saqqara, Set is often associated with intense events like earthquakes and thunderstorms, and words near his glyph translate into words such as storm, rage, confusion and turmoil. The story of Set is very similar to the human experience when the base chakra is imbalanced. If you feel like you are living in suffering, shame, fear or have issues with confidence, it’s likely that tending to your base chakra using sacred Egyptian Red Amber Oil could boost esteem, release fears and help promote overall health in more ways than you think.
