You're in luck because we've figured out the essential oil you need in your life based on your unique astrological characteristics. Keep reading to find out which oil speaks to your star sign personality:

Aries (March 21 – April 19): Peppermint

Peppermint isn't just a favorite seasonal flavor. This oil is known for its properties which invigorate the mind and boost positivity. Peppermint should be the go-to oil for Aries because we both know that your competitive side is known to get the best of you. This oil will stimulate your mood when you're in need of a pep talk and ease your negative thoughts if  you fall short of first place. Additionally, peppermint has a cooling effect that's perfect for sore muscles. Of all the zodiac signs, we know Aries are the most physically challenged people out there.

 

 

Taurus (April 20 – May 20): Myrrh

In ancient times, Myrrh was considered valuable as gold. Because Taurus is always after that luxe life, we knew only you would truly appreciate this oil. This woodsy scent is known to promote emotional balance and well-being. If there's another thing we know about Taurus, it's that you tend to be rather stubborn. Because of this personality trait, you would deeply benefit from the properties of this essential oil, which will ease you through your more trying times.

 

Gemini (May 21 – June 20): Bergamot

This essential oil is simultaneously uplifting and calming, which makes Bergamot just as duplicitous as Gemini. Gemini is known to have two very different sides to their personality, which is why this double-sided scent is perfect for you. It can be known to uplift spirits while also soothe any anxieties you might have. Bergamot is the most delicate of the citrus family and carries a fruity and floral scent. We also know that Gems can be a bit sensitive, so you and this delicate fruit are practically made for each other.

 

Cancer (June 21 – July 22): Lavender

Lavender is a favorite flower of many. As an oil, this plant contains calming and relaxing properties. Cancers love their security, whether it comes from strong family bonds or loyal friends, but they can be tough to get to know due to their guarded exterior. This oil will help relax any anxieties that this sign carries with it, and hopefully will promote a more open approach to the unknown. Lavender may be no match for Cancer's hard shell, but it will at the very least calm it down. A bit.

 

Leo (July 23 – Aug. 22): Frankincense 

Frankincense is known as the "King of Oils" so, well, obvi this essential oil is Leo's perfect match. Besides being just as flashy as this zodiac sign, Frankincense carries with it mood-boosting properties which eliminate anxieties and sadness. Yes, Leo may be the most charismatic star sign, but if the old adage, "What goes up, must come down" is true, then Leos are also known to have dark days. Thanks to this essential oil, Leo will be be able to hop right back into the center of attention after the emotionally soothing scent of Frankincense works its magic.

 

Virgo (Aug. 23 – Sept. 22): Eucalyptus

Virgo, you are all about purity, which is why Eucalyptus is the only essential oil for you. The fragrance is as fresh as they come, but that aside, this powerful oil is a pro at cleansing your surrounding environment all while promoting relaxation. You have an analytical eye, so you need an oil that pays attention to the details, just like this airy leaf. Because your mind is constantly focused on organization, planning and detail, you could use a little help easing tension, which is what this oil helps do.

 

Libra (Sept. 23 – Oct. 22): Orange

Libra is all about balance and harmony. What better essential oil for promoting these characteristics than Orange, which works to energize the mind and body. Above all else, you value a tranquil environment, which is exactly what this sweet and fresh aroma delivers. The properties within this essential oil are just as charged as Libra and ready to invigorate everything from mood to energy to bodily happiness. Libras will feel totally balanced after letting this citrus scent purify the air. After all, they constantly strive for a harmonious flow in all aspects of their life.

 

Scorpio (Oct. 23 – Nov. 21): Cassia

Cassia, if you're unfamiliar with the substance, is a close cousin to cinnamon. Like Scorpio, Cassia evokes a somewhat mysterious vibe do to its warm and spicy aroma. But scent aside, this zodiac sign pairs well with this oil because it's known for uplifting properties. Scorpio can at times isolate themselves, but with a little help from some Cassia oil, they'll be reminded of good times with friends and family. This warm scented oil will help promote feelings of community to this water sign which can often let brooding get the better of them.

 

Sagittarius (Nov. 22 – Dec. 21): Rosemary

Rosemary isn't just a delicious herb used in cooking. As an essential oil, this leaf has energizing properties which promote deep concentration. Sagittarius are some of the most sociable signs of the stars, but if there's one thing they could really use, it's help keeping their head out of the clouds. While we all love this sign for being the adventurers that they are, a little Rosemary essential oil is exactly what they need for concentrating on the more boring classes or responsibilities in life.

 

Capricorn (Dec. 22 – Jan. 19): Tea Tree

Tea Tree, also known as Melaleuca, is the only essential oil fit for the hard-working Capricorn. This oil has limitless applications when it comes to cleansing everything from your home to your skin to the air you breathe. Cap is known to value discipline above all else which is truly what this oil encompasses. While Tea Tree really gets the purification job done, we have to admit that Capricorn could use the other benefits of this oil. With a rejuvenating aroma, this leaf will have even the most stuffy Capricorns feeling young, wild and free.

 

Aquarius (Jan. 20 – Feb. 18): Blue Tansy

Blue Tansy is an interesting oil… possibly just interesting enough for the unique thinker, Aquarius. The oil may be blue in color (as opposed to most other oils which run clear), but this oil is actually derived from a yellow-flowering plant. Aquarians are some of the biggest thinkers in the zodiac and are always on the search for new, impossible ideas. While we all appreciate your innovative ways, allow this oil to help mellow you out every now and then. Blue Tansy is great for soothing the mind and body with its fruity aroma. We won't tell anyone you took a break, but feel good knowing you relaxed with this interesting blue oil.

 

Pisces (Feb. 19 – March 20): Vetiver

Pisces is the most emotional sign of the stars. Your empathy and compassion runs deep—so deep, in fact, that other people's feelings are nearly the only thing you can think about. But fear not, because Vetiver, with its exotic aroma, is known to produce a grounding effect on your emotions. We both know that your feelings are what make you such an artistic soul, but with a little help from this essential oil, Pisces will be able to calm the more overwhelming thoughts. With an interesting scent mixing sweet caramel and woodsy notes, this calming aroma is just as complex as Pisces. No one's asking you to change, but rather ground your emotions every now and then.
