The SECOND chakra is the SACRAL, located just below your navel in the pelvic area. Your sexual energy and life force is here. Emotional issues in the area, to name a few, are sexuality, creativity, shame and guilt. The SACRAL vibrates to the concert key of D, Ray on the scale, and is associated with the color ORANGE. It is found in the testes or ovaries and is associated with sexuality.
DIFFUSE: ESSENTIAL OILS —choose oils that help you enjoy life, creation and pleasure:Ginger Root, Cardamom, Ylang Ylang, Jasmine or Orange.

Then work in wide circles and rub into day our belly area of the Chakra. Focus on the Sacral Chakra receiving the aromatherapy and think of a deep sensual orange color while the oils are massaged in. While you meditate and do yoga, diffuse whichever oil you are choosing to use.

More woo, woo and OH wow and lots of WHOOPEE as well as coiled snakes:
Original undifferentiated energy from creation is often called Akasha in Indian philosophy and in other enlightened circles, it is termed the Secret Fire. This elemental psychic energy is completely instinctual and unconscious and is heavily influenced by spiritual, psychic, and psychological phenomena. One of the major functions of the Secret Fire is to increase human self-awareness. At the lowest level, this is the ego, at its highest, it is the Higher Self, or Universal Energy.
ABOUT that curly snake that keeps appearing:
In the vast majority of humanity, this Secret Fire, or liberating energy of self-consciousness, is said to lie dormant at the base of the spine, coiled like a serpent. By learning to contact the various focal points of energy, what are called the chakras, the person moves her locus of consciousness into the various areas. If the Secret Fire reaches the top of the skull and beyond, spiritual awakening can occur, allowing for a descent and re-ascent of the energy, during which the psychic centers can be awakened, allowing for the manifestation of personal empowerment.
The Secret Fire is directly linked to sexual and creative forces in humans. Sexual desire can act as one of the basic evolutionary impulses, along with Higher Intellectual forces. The dormant capability and need for positive orgasmic experiences is biologically and psychically rooted. Sexual experience within the context of genuine love involves experience of spiritual transcendence, foreshadowing ecstatic union with the One. The “little death” or petite morte of the sexual orgasm, is a forerunner of the “big death” as we let go and experience divine oblivion.

Close your eyes and take deep breath
Be aware of your body–do a scan of your body to find any area of tension. Breathe into them and release them
As you empty your mind of all other thoughts, feel the fluidity within your body and be reminded that you are a sensory being feeling, creating and enjoying the juiciness of life.
Feel your body, while you still on the outside, flowing like water on the inside full of potential.
This potential creates a nurturing sensation that cradles you. You are moved by its gentle rocking flow.
As you are saturated by the feeling of orange flowing potential, imagine it flowing through your body. This is the force behind your creativity and passion. It gives you a warm and fluid sensuality that is attractive and fills you with a vibrancy that resonates in all that you do
