Which is the Best Essential Oil for You?
Are you fond of using essential oils in your everyday life? Do you know which oil suits you? What if I told you that aromatherapy and astrology are connected to each other? Essential oils have it’s own use and are meant to enhance calming, healing and inspiration, each sign’s beneficial and challenging attributes are considered, so we’re really talking about different essential oils at different times.
Events and Characteristics
For best results, let’s consider your sun sign’s specific periods when there are more stresses and other periods when easier opportunities need energy and direction. Much of deciding what oils are best for you is based on the events in your life in addition to your sign characteristics. So here we’ll be looking at each sign’s basic nature and needs, along with what will be happening in life over the next several months:
For those born in early Aries (late March/early April), your love of challenges has been overwhelmed the past few years, bringing figurative and literal headaches. Peppermint and ginger bring relief. Neroli oil brings sexiness and joy later this year. Those born mid-April should take advantage of stimulating neroli for a turnon and motivation, using peppermint later this year for calming as you approach an active time.
This 2-1/2 year period of challenges to your personal peace, particularly from powerful people and mysterious sources, will be ending later in August. Until then, eucalyptus, chamomile, peppermint and lavender can soothe frustrations. In the fall, stimulate yourself to accept new, sexy delights using jasmine, patchouli, rose and sandalwood.
It’s all about balance these days for brilliant Gemini who is coping with the unknown in communications. If nerves have made you “itchy,” enjoy a massage with myrrh that’s soothing. For energy and focus, bergamot, cinnamon and grapefruit help you overcome the malaise a confused world presents at times.
For early Cancerians (late June/early July), you’ve been handling so much stress for so long that chamomile, frankincense and melissa are a godsend. Things are now improving, so consider bedding scented with jasmine and ylang ylang for a little surprise for someone special. It’s perfect for a very sexy end of summer, continuing through next year.
This summer is a time for fun for most Leos. Those born in mid-August are experiencing some residual drama and intensity, so use eucalyptus, camphor, tea tree and rosemary at the stressful times. Otherwise, all Leos have a summer of pleasure enhanced by rose, saffron, sandalwood and vetiver. You might want to avoid cypress, lavender and cinnamon—just this summer —if you tend to be overly generous.
You are the master of using your mental faculties to make things happen. The last few years have been quite a challenge to that, as others are tough to understand. Peppermint, rosemary, verbena and basil help focus. Beginning around your birthday there will be demands, followed by joyous, major accomplishments over the next few years. When you become too focused, use sandalwood, patchouli and melissa to bring balance.
You have adapted and learned to be more self-assertive in several relationships. Your partners are going to have to “put up or shut up” in the next few years to keep you. To help you speak your mind, use rosewood, cedarwood and black pepper essences. Build your confidence level to seize upcoming opportunities with cardamom, frankincense, cedarwood and marjoram.
This summer is the grand finale of a two-and-a-half-year period when intensity-loving you has said, “enough!” Use sandalwood and clary sage for calming and elemi and benzoin to look deep inside. Then suddenly you’ll discover that a friend may become a passionate lover, or your lover will begin to be a friend! Palmarosa, rosewood, lavender and angelica with a “musk” essence can help this happen.
Your spirit has been soaring even as some unclear issues surround you this past summer. Frankincense, narcissus and grapefruit help you cut through confusion when you speak your intentions. The next two-and-a-half years will be challenging, but it will help you build a wonderful new you. Keep your confidence high and your tensions low during this time with sandalwood, jasmine, tea tree and bergamot.
You’re coming into a time to focus on your own needs after several years of adjustment to others’ demands. Hyacinth, cedarwood, sandalwood and helichrysum bring health benefits and a refreshing attitude adjustment about your life. Benzoin, bergamot, clary sage and chamomile bring a sense of freedom and confidence after recent “storms.”
Challenges over the summer offer opportunities in partnerships and career. Neroli and petitgrain help increase blood circulation and open you to new experiences that bring future gains. Ylang ylang oils and clary sage add to confidence. As your world gets bigger during the rest of the year, you’ll feel more like adapting to others’ needs with mandarin, lemon and juniper influences.
The coming year is going to be all about grounding yourself while maintaining a positive attitude and confidence. To help keep your sacred Piscean feet firmly on planet Earth, use rosemary, peppermint and cedarwood. To assist in staying inspired, use nymphaea/blue lotus and spikenard. Bring comfort to your precious feet with cedarwood, rose, sweet orange and juniper.
