The work of the visuddha chakra, the energy center of communication, is to create spaciousness around the throat and neck. Gifts aligned with this chakra help midwife the profound spiritual truths that flow from here.
Throat Chakra (Visuddha)
truth • clarity • communication • speech • responsibility • expression

2. Lululemon Vinyasa Scarf
This ultra-cozy, chic scarf will keep the throat chakra warm and protected. Whether draped as an infinity scarf or worn as a shawl, it can assist in speaking a higher truth ($48, lululemon.com).
3. Terrain Bee Raw Varietal Honey Flight
We love this gorgeous set of nine vials of hand-corked honey, which supports artisanal beekeepers and endangered bees. Just a spoonful of this nectar a day will make scratchy throats ready to warble ($78, shopterrain.com).

The latest push in sustainable bottles goes back to our ancestral hands in clay. Hydrate this chakra responsibly with this luminous vessel—free of hidden health hazards ($36, earthinusa.com).
5. Block Shop Foil Stamped Note Cards
Handwritten letters are making a comeback—conveying gratitude, civility, and appreciation in an age when rapid-fire emails and text messages are tossed off to the tune of hundreds a day. These striking designs, created by fifth-generation master printers in Jaipur, India, take their inspiration from modern ceramic artists, the natural world, and Mughal aesthetics ($34, blockshoptextiles.com).
6. Tea Forte Icon Au Gold Infuser and Chakra Tea Assortment
The art of tea drinking is in slowing down and listening—that’s also the realm of the throat chakra, which relates to both receiving guidance and voicing truths.
