Struggling to live life at 100%
Aromatherapy is a trusted practice that uses essential oil to promote physical and mental wellbeing. Here’s which oil you should be incorporating into your life according to your star sign. You got this!
Aries (21 March – 20 April)
Being the fiery person that you are, sometimes you need to find some chill. Luckily you can find it in a bottle of lavender oil, as the scent of this plant is renowned for its ability to calm and distress the mind.
Taurus (21 April – 20 May)
You tend to put the needs of those around you above your own. That’s sweet, but it can also lead to a burnout if you don’t make time for Number One. A few whiffs of grounding cedarwood will have you feeling centered again.
Gemini (21 May – 21 June)
You have a few sides to you, which means that your thoughts can be all over the place and leave you feeling confused. Give yourself some mental clarity and focus by sniffing on some basil oil, which helps to combat mental exhaustion.
Cancer (22 June – 22 July)
Being the most emotional sign in the zodiac means that you are prone to stress and anxiety. We feel you. The smell of peppermint will not only make you feel invigorated but will soothe a nervous stomach as well.
Leo (23 July – 23 August)
Leos are feisty and pack some serious punch. So does ginger, which makes this a match made in essential oil heaven! It can also help to prevent burnout and keep you healthy, which is what you need with such a busy social life.
Virgo (24 August – 23 September)
Sure, you might seem grounded and level-headed, but that doesn’t mean that you aren’t freaking out on the inside. The scent of sweet, floral ylang-ylang will help you to stay calm under pressure and lift your mood.
Libra (24 September – 23 October)
You live by the motto that life is all about balance. But life can throw curveballs every now and then. And when it does, the scent of frankincense will calm your mind and make you feel instantly more peaceful.
Scorpio (24 October – 22 November)
As the most passionate star sign, you are a great lover but also prone to fits of jealousy. Uh oh! Before you do anything rash, rather sniff on some rose oil – it’s like a floral-scented chill pill for your heart.
Sagittarius (23 November – 21 December)
You love a good party, or five. In a row. But your busy life can take its toll on your body, which can, in turn, lead to sore muscles and breakouts. Rather than slowing down, try some tea tree oil.
Capricorn (22 December – 20 January)
You’re a hard-working #girlboss who is a total perfectionist. But being perfect ALL the time is unsustainable, so calm your inner voice with the scent of sandalwood, which will help you let loose a bit.
Aquarius (21 January – 19 February)
You are eccentric and full of creative ideas, but sometimes you struggle to express them. Chamomile is known for its ability to quiet your mind so that you can think – and articulate yourself – more clearly.
Pisces (20 February – 20 March)
Your friends and family would probably describe you as a bit of a day-dreamer, which means you need an oil to help you focus. Lemon acts like a citrusy wakeup call and will help you to concentrate and stay alert.
