Have you ever heard of Astrological Aromatherapy? It's another option for selecting Essential Oils specifically suited to you.
It’s not uncommon to see direct correlations between personal characteristics and physical health problems. For example, people that tend to stress are more prone to digestive issues. Considering that, it makes sense to think that the characteristics shared by people with the same Star Sign may potentially lead to similar emotional and health challenges and thus benefit from similar preventative health and wellness practices.
Through research into the common characteristics of each sign, you can use knowledge on the properties of Essential Oils to select oils or formulate blends that may enhance and compliment the positive attributes of that sign or help with the challenges they may face.
As you may know, each sign has a ruling planet but it is a little known fact that plants have been assigned one too. In the 17th century, a herbalist and apothecary named Nicholas Culpeper, methodically ascribed ruling planets to countless plants for the purpose of combining astrology and herbal medicine. He compiled his life’s research into a book called Nicholas Culpeper’s Complete Herbal which lists herbal remedies from each ruling planet to treat any disease. For example, to treat congestion: one with the ruling planet of Jupiter (Sagittarius) would use sage whereas, one with the ruling planet of Venus (Taurus/Libra) would turn to Thyme. This is another way to select Essential Oils for Astrological Signs.
Below, you can see one or more oils, selected using the ruling planets, that may provide balance to someone of the pertaining Sun Sign as well as a crystal for specific support.
I can’t help but find Nicholas Culpeper very interesting being that he devoted his life to study based on something that was caught in the depths between science and superstition and there wasn’t a lot of respect for that at any point. Culpeper may just be the reason that the science behind Herbal Medicine hasn’t been taken as seriously in the modern world and has been overthrown by pharmaceuticals. If you aren’t intuitively drawn to superstitious insights such as Astrology, don’t let the association with aromatherapy detract from the science backed benefits of Essential Oils.
While, your zodiac sign can give insight on what oil may work best with you, we are all complex, unique beings and the best way to find what you like is by playing around with the different aromas and selecting one based on what feels right.
