Sahasrara--Nourishing the Crown Chakra

Sahasrara, the 1000 petaled lotus of the Crown chakra, finds its manifestation in Universal identity, self knowledge and pure consciousness.  In a physical sense, the Crown chakra's role is similar to that of the pituitary gland, which is the master switch for the entire endocrine system.  
Meditation is the physical action that engages Sahasrara!
It is the seat of wisdom, knowledge, bliss and unity, releasing a sense of Beingness and Interbeingness.

Nourishment for Sahasrara is simple fasting.
Air, oxygen, Pranayama!
Herbs and incense can be burned in ceremonial fashion for purification purposes.  Herbs such as sage, copal, juniper, myrrh and frankincense are very good for cleansing the environment.
Sandlewood incense is excellent for everyday meditation.
