You know your sun, moon, and rising sign. You know which signs you’re most compatible with (and which are harder work). You’ve even got your element type down.
But do you know what your zodiac’s best essential oils are?
Let’s take a step into the world of astrological aromatherapy. Read on to discover the best essential oils for your element and star sign!
The Best Essential Oils for Fire Signs 🔥
Passionate, charismatic, impulsive. The fire signs sure know how to bring the energy! If you’re a fire sign (Aries, Leo, and Sagittarius), the same fire that makes you such a force of nature may also lead to issues related to irritability, inflammation, and restlessness. Balance your fire with relaxing and supportive essential oils to help you keep your cool.
♈️ Aries (March 21 - April 19): Peppermint
Pink Moon Pick: Relato Nativo Nourishing Lip Balm
Like the ram itself, Aries are strong-minded and eager to move forward. But, always pushing through the latest roadblock or towards the next goal can get aggravating. The result? Headaches, insomnia, angry breakouts, and other signs of fiery friction.
Peppermint oil helps soothe and relax an irritated ram. It even helps quiet a tension headache or prevent one from starting in the first place. Use Relato Nativo Nourishing Lip Balm as a daily antidote to stress (and dry lips!).
♌️ Leo (June 23 - July 22): Bergamot
Pink Moon Pick: Meant Do-All Wash
Leo’s are known to be confident and radiant. But putting all that energy outwards leaves little energy to feel just as fierce inwards.
Bergamot is not only soothing to a stressed-out Leo, but it restores their sense of self-acceptance, self-love, and intuition. Dab a bit of bergamot on the back of your ears at night to restore your power and confidence come morning. Then, start the day with a fresh sense of confidence with Meant Do-All Wash.
♐️ Sagittarius (November 22 - December 21): Sweet Orange
Pink Moon Pick: Drops of Sunshine Essential Oil
Sagittarius, you know how to have a good time! But when you’re stuck in a routine and don’t have the freedom to be spontaneous, you start to feel trapped and dull.
When frustration gets the best of you, tune into your natural creative, playful side with sweet orange oil. Sweet orange is fun and cheerful – but mellow, too. Drops of Sunshine Essential Oil blend is the perfect way to ease the pent-up tensions of feeling stuck while still looking on the bright side.
The Best Essential Oils for Earth Signs 🌍
Just like the earth we stand on, earth signs are supportive, grounded, and peaceful. Unfortunately, life is not always so stable! When things get hairy, earth types need extra TLC to find their footing – or else they struggle with fatigue, anxiety, and digestive upset.
These types will benefit from being as close to nature as possible. They feel revived after spending time outdoors or enjoying a botanical or earthy essential oil-based self-care routine.
♉️ Taurus (April 20 - May 20): Ylang Ylang
Pink Moon Pick: Midnight Melody Body & Hair Oil
Taureans are known for their love of luxury and aesthetics. Perhaps surrounding yourself with beauty helps ease the weight of the world off your compassionate shoulders?
Infusing your self-care routine with an essential that’s just as decadent as your daydreams can help ease your stress, boost your mood, and relax tension. Ylang ylang does the trick. It’s exotic yet earthy, invigorating yet soothing – the perfect balance for a Taurus. Feel restored from head to toe with ylang ylang in Midnight Melody Body & Hair Oil.
♍️ Virgo (August 23 - September 22): Geranium
Pink Moon Pick: Activist Collective Botanical Cleansing Oil
You won’t waste time with small talk with a Virgo! You are a deep thinker and ready to support any friend in need. But, your constant diligence and dependability can take a toll.
Geranium helps restore your overworked mind and manage the mental overwhelm of being everyone’s go-to pal for help and advice. Activist Botanical Cleansing Oil & Makeup Removal uses geranium to make evening self-care simple while restoring tired skin and leaving you with a bright and dewy complexion.
♑️ Capricorn (December 22 - January 19): Sandalwood
Pink Moon Pick: Malaya Organics Rejuvenating Face Serum
Capricorns are practical, steadfast, and hard workers. But this tough exterior is often hiding feelings of immense worry and insecurity inside.
Take some inner strength and balance from the Sandalwood tree – a tree known for radiance and protective energies. While you feel supported and safe from the inside out, sandalwood also helps moisturize the skin and improve elasticity. Malaya Organics Rejuvenating Face Serum is our go-to (plus, it has a floral and woodsy scent that Earth signs love).
The Best Essential Oils for Air Signs ☁️
If you’re an air sign, people probably describe you as free-spirited and sociable. You bring inspiration and a breath of fresh air wherever you go! But trying to be everywhere with everyone can lead to you feeling scattered. Essential oils that inspire your sense of adventure with a hint of grounding energy will help you strike balance.
♊️ Gemini (May 21 - June 20): Tea Tree
Pink Moon Pick: Relato Nativo Therapeutic Copal Face & Body Balm
As a Gemini, you’re always ready to take action – sometimes in multiple ways at the same time! You’re a master of multitasking, but bringing your focus to one thing at a time will help you catch your breath. So will clarifying oils tea tree. Tea tree quite literally open the airways and create a sense of space, openness, and clarity in mind and body.
Take a mini-break to catch your breath with Relato Nativo Therapeutic Copal Face & Body Balm. Rub a small amount in your hands, cup them over your nose, and inhale. Then, massage the balm gently over your temples and sinuses to instantly feel refreshed and focused.
♎️ Libra (September 23 - October 22): Balsam
Pink Moon Pick: Relato Nativo Botanical Bath Salts
Libra, the sign of balance. They are elegant, intelligent, and strike the perfect balance between yin and yang, masculine and feminine. Libras thrive when they feel all is fair and right with the world, which is a tall order most of the time.
To help your Libra soul feel at peace and grounded, use a woody essential oil like balsam. Balsam is grounding, but not too heavy so you still feel light and at ease. You can get a similar effect with a blend of cedarwood and vanilla, as in Relato Nativo Botanical Bath Salts.
♒️ Aquarius (January 20 - February 18): Rose
Pink Moon Pick: Malaya Organics Moroccan Rose Perfume
The Aquarius sign is imaginative, powerful, and assertive. The desire to create and invent comes naturally to you, and you’re always coming up with new ideas, inventions, or projects that will make the world a better place.
When your energy is low, your passion can seem more like stubbornness and your inspiration can run dry. Use Malaya Organics Moroccan Rose Perfume oil to soften rough edges and stimulate your mind.
The Best Essential Oils for Water Signs 💧
Water signs are the dreamers and lovers among us. They can be highly intuitive – and also highly sensitive. These qualities make water signs imaginative artists and caring friends. But they also cause them to take things personally and feel moodier than other element types. This high sensitivity can translate to skin and health issues too, which makes clarifying and detoxifying oils particularly helpful for water signs.
♋️ Cancer (June 21 - July 22): Lavender
Pink Moon Pick: Lhamour Baby Balm
Like the tides, Cancer is ruled by the moon. And just as the moon waxes and wanes, so does Cancer’s mood.
To keep your emotions in balance, use a calming essential oil like lavender. Lavender prevents those changeable mood swings and infuses your self-care ritual with gentleness, peace, and tranquility. Keep Lhamour Baby Balm within reach – its soothing scent and gentle texture will nourish mind and skin all day long.
♏️ Scorpio (October 23 - November 21): Blue Lotus
Pink Moon Pick: Species By the Thousands Energy Clearing Spray
A sensual sign like Scorpio deserves an essential oil that’s just as seductive. Blue lotus is an exotic oil that is known for improving circulation, promoting well-being, and even stimulating a sense of euphoria. Scorpios are also known for their deep intuition and psychic-like abilities.
Blue lotus can help you tap into your spiritual side with a sacred self-care ritual. If you can’t find blue lotus oil, consider other transcendental oils like the palo santo and clary sage in Species By the Thousands Energy Clearing Spray (perfect to spritz before meditating).
♓️ Pisces (February 19 - March 20): Neroli
Pink Moon Pick: Over the Moon Perfume Oil
Pisces are emotional people who aren’t afraid to dig deep into their minds and hearts to better understand themselves and the human condition. Wading in emotions all day, however, can leave you feeling a little raw sometimes. As such, Pisces often struggle with depression, nervousness, insomnia, and loneliness.
Neroli oil comes to the rescue, offering healing for both mind and skin. Neroli has been used to treat pain, acne, and scars on the surface, and anxiety and depression within. Try Over the Moon perfume oil with neroli for whole-body healing and inner peace.
