Aromatherapy and Astrology

Share this post

Our personal characteristics may be directly correlated to our physical health. For instance, those that are constant worriers are more prone to heart and digestive issues. Taking it a step further, I can certainly see how it can be said that the common characteristics shared by those with the same astrological sign may potentially lead to similar emotional and physical health challenges.

Aromatherapy and astrology are two fields that aren’t considered closely connected. You, however, can potentially integrate the benefits of aromatherapy into what you know about yourself and your loved ones through your insight into astrology. For instance, by researching and understanding the common traits associated with your astrological sign, you can understand some of the positive attributes as well as the challenges that you may face. You can then look to aromatherapy and essential oils to potentially help you nurture your positives and help you towards overcoming your challenging personality traits and physical health issues.

For a detailed introduction into astrology, I recommend Astrological Aromatherapy by Patricia Davis. Another charming book that extends its coverage into other holistic modalities is Planetary Apothecary by Stephanie Gailing.

Listed below are each of the twelve signs of the zodiac followed by the personality characters for each of the signs – to help promote Stephanie Gailing’s book Planetary Apothecary, I am listing the characteristics that she presents in the book.

Also shown are the Astrological Oils suggested by Aura Cacia our preferred Aromatherapy brand here at California Herban Life.

In addition to the “Essential Oil of Choice” listed below for each astrological sign, you may also benefit from considering use of other essential oils known to help enhance or combat a specific trait.

For instance, Arians are said to have hot tempers. You can look to AromaWeb’s Aromatherapy Recipes to Combat Anger for calming oils tailored to help with anger.
