Creating your own aromatherapy blend is nothing short of magical as the right mix of essential oils can produce optimum benefits for your body, mind, and spirit, according to best-selling authors and renowned astrologers Amy Zerner and Monte Farber.
Aside from delivering an irresistible scent, Zerner and Farber say that essential oils can deliver therapeutic benefits that are both restorative and revitalizing for your health. In case you’re wondering which essential oils are right for you, we asked Zerner and Farber to recommend the best essential oils for each zodiac sign.
Aries (March 21 – April 19): Frankincense or rosemary
Those born under this sign tend to be honest, brave, and headstrong individuals, making them drawn to stimulating, bold scents that pervade their space with comfort and glowing warmth. With this in mind, Zerner and Farber suggest that essential oils like frankincense and rosemary are worth investing in because it helps support the strong Aries energy we all know and love.
Taurus (April 20 – May 20): Sweet, creamy florals
“The best kind of scent for a kind, earthy, patient, and practical Taurus is a luxurious blend of sweet, creamy flowers such as honeysuckle, gardenia, or magnolia,” Zerner and Farber suggest. These scents can help encourage feelings of protection and security.
Gemini (May 21 – June 20): Basil, bergamot, or grapefruit
Geminis are witty, changeable, versatile, talkative, and well-read individuals, according to Zerner and Farber. While Geminis love to communicate and get their point across, both astrologers note that those born under this sign can tend to suffer from an overactive mind, making it important to use oils like basil, bergamot, and grapefruit.
Cancer (June 21 – July 22): Melon, vanilla, or coconut
Those born under this astrological sign are well known for their ability to nurture and protect others, Zerner and Farber explain. The feelings and the moods Cancers produce draw them to protective aromas, such as melon, vanilla, and coconut, which help them stay comforted and centered.
Leo (July 22 – August 23): Lemon, ginger, garlic, or marjoram
Zerner and Farber suggest that Leos are dramatic, proud, romantic, playful, and fun-loving people. Since the back and heart tend to be tender areas for those born under this sign, they recommend investing in essential oils like lemon, ginger, garlic, and marjoram.
Virgo (August 23 – September 22): Patchouli, melissa, or chamomile
Zerner and Farber say that earthy Virgos tend to be energetic, analytical, intelligent, reliable, and responsible individuals. However, Virgos also tend to be meticulous perfectionists, making it important to find an essential oil to alleviate some of their worries. “Patchouli, Melissa, or chamomile will help to calm the nervous system, soothing feelings of being overwhelmed and overworked,” they explain.
Libra (September 23 – October 22): Neroli or lavender
Zerner and Farber note that faithfulness, partnership, and loyalty are qualities that are usually essential to a Libra. Considering that Libras want to be surrounded by the very best, both Zerner and Farber recommend investing in luxurious essential oils, such as neroli (orange blossom) or lavender to help speak to their refined tastes and keen perceptiveness.
Scorpio (October 23 – November 21): Jasmine or geranium
Although Scorpios are intense, loyal, and determined individuals, Zerner and Farber explain that they are also the master detectives of the zodiac who like to uncover the hidden truth. They tend to have strong passions, so both astrologers suggest investing in strong aromas. “Jasmine nurtures Scorpios’ sensual side, while geranium can help soften their intense nature,” they explain.
Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21): Tea tree
“Sagittarians tend to be optimistic, enthusiastic, and have a deep love for all things foreign and exotic,” Zerner and Farber suggest. They’re ruled by the planet of Jupiter, so both astrologers recommend investing in tea tree essential oil, which can help heal and encourage a Sagittarian spirit.
Capricorn (December 22 – January 29): Coriander
Capricorns are ambitious, prudent, and self-disciplined people, according to Zerner and Farber. And while those who are born under this sign are known for their persistence, both astrologers said Capricorns can also be a bit hard-headed, making coriander the perfect essential oil to help soften their stubborn side.
Aquarius (January 20 – February 18): Lemon verbena
“Aquarians are unique, brilliant, articulate, and progressive individuals that have free-thinking minds, unfettered by rules,” Zerner and Farber explain. Since Aquarians tend to be idealistic individuals, both astrologers say that those born under this sign can find the delightful scent of lemon verbena (with amber or almond) to be very de-stressing, as it can help foster feelings of determination.
Pisces (February 19 – March 20): Elemi
Zerner and Farber explain that those born under this sign are very sensitive individuals who are full of inspiration and clairvoyance. They suggest that Pisces can experience scents on a deeply mystical soul level, so they recommend using elemi essential oil as a stress-reducer and a meditation oil.
