Berry Crumble

Berry Crumble

This is great for the root chakra or "Muladhara" in Sanskrit. Located in between the perineum and the coccyx or the pelvic bone, it is responsible for your sense of safety and security. The muladhara chakra is the foundation of the physical structure and the energy body so that makes it the most important chakra. Berries are a vital resource because they are grown in Earth’s soil and contain the grounding and stabilizing energy of Earth and therefore heal the root chakra.

Dark bluish fruits like blue berries, black berries, raspberries also help to keep the third eye chakra or "Ajna" centred.
