Which essential oil is best for your zodiac sign?

Which essential oil is best for your zodiac sign?

Essential oils have many diverse uses. You can use essential oil in a diffuser to set the mood in your office or workspace. You can dab diluted oil onto your pulse points to shift your energy. Oils are known to ease stress, boost moods, and help sleep.

Which Oil Scent Is Best for You?

There are so many different oil scents and brands available on the market. Choosing the right essential oil for you can be a bit overwhelming, and, ultimately, it depends on what you're trying to accomplish. If you're new to using essential oils, a good way to pick an essential oil is to look for the specific herb that’s aligned with your zodiac sign.

Specific herbs are associated with each zodiac sign, and those herbs have remedial properties for their corresponding sign. Each medicinal herb has a ruling planet, and this is one way aromatherapists select essential oils for people: by picking an oil that correlates with that individual’s zodiac sign. Let’s have a look.

Don't Forget: Talk to Your Doctor and Dilute Your Oils

It's important to consult a physician about using essential oils that may interfere with medication or about ailments you wish to lessen with essential oils. When using essential oils on your skin or in another form, it's important to dilute them.

I believe that for every illness or ailment known to man, God has a plant out here that will heal it. We just need to keep discovering the properties for natural healing.

Shaloo you are very good at these. I thank you.

@Lorna We are all going through stressful times. Stay safe & healthy.

Lorna Lamon on June 11, 2020:

I use essential oils, in particular Lavender oil which helps me to sleep. My zodiac sign is Taurus so I will definitely add Oregano oil and Eucalyptus Oil to my list. I have taken oregano oil in tablet form mainly to boost my immune system, however, only for short periods of time as it is not good for the kidneys.

My job is quite stressful at the moment so a 'sense of calm' is just what I need. Thank you for sharing such wonderful tips and advice Shaloo.

Shaloo Walia (author) from India on June 11, 2020:

@John Oregano oil is an effective natural antibiotic and anti-fungal, and may also help you lose weight and lower your cholesterol levels.

John Hansen from Gondwana Land on June 11, 2020:

Interesting to choose an essential oil by zodiac sign, Shaloo, but I guess it is as good a way as any. We always have eucalyptus oil in the house which happens to be calming for a Taurus. I can’t recall ever seeing oregano oil, though we do have oregano in the herb garden.
