By Diana Verduzco, The Divine Designer
Aromatherapy is a powerful and significant contributor to the aura of a space. Often left as an afterthought, scents are far more effective in the design of a home’s interior than we give them credit for. When curating and transforming a person’s sanctuary, one of the first questions I ask is what their zodiac sign is. This tells me so much about the composition of their personality – from the element they are ruled by to the lifestyle and preferences they likely enjoy. In this blog you will read about six expert pairings that combine astrological signs with their corresponding aromatherapy blends. Understanding your specific scent match will allow for a comprehensive approach to the overall experience you should be creating within your sacred space.
- Namaste, The Divine Designer
De-Stress Mind – Calm & Focus
Frankincense / Petitgrain / Wild Chamomile
Sign – AQUARIUS (1/20-2/18): Aquarius is ruled by Saturn, which means they are cool, yet complex, much like this Aromatherapy blend. Aquarius is constantly workshopping new ideas and have extremely active minds, which can result in mental chaos and emotional stress. Being an air sign, the Aquarius person perfectly embodies the Wild Chamomile aroma, as they fly through life in a fun and free fashion. Despite this, they are still super grounded, which the resin-like Frankincense note in De-Stress Mind will support.
Crystal – TURQUOISE: Turquoise aids in de-stressing and meditation. It also helps increase concentration.
Optimism – Brighten & Boost
Bergamot / Damask Rose / Basil
Sign – TAURUS (4/20-5/20): Taurus is ruled by Venus, making this sign incredibly sensual. The fragrances they are most commonly associated with are intense florals, such as Damask Rose, that emit depth and power. Being an earth sign, it’s only fitting that the Taurus aroma is comprised of natural plants that grow from the earth.
Crystal – PYRITE: Pyrite promotes optimism and cheerful moods, while still being a very grounding, financially-potent stone.
Deep Relax – Sleep & Tranquility
Chamomile / Vetiver / Sandalwood
Sign – CANCER (6/21-7/22): Cancers are known for their desire for comfort, nurture, and all things homebody. They have the ability to look at every situation in a romanticized manner, and are sensitive and emotional to all of humanity. The calmness that exudes from aromas like sandalwood and chamomile goes hand in hand with the aura of a Cancer person.
Crystal – MOONSTONE: Cancers are ruled by the moon, so it’s only fitting that they identify with moonstone. Moonstone promotes harmony and peace, which is an absolute necessity for Cancers.
Forest Therapy – Ground & Restore
Pink Peppercorn / Cypress / Ho Wood
Sign – VIRGO (8/23-9/22): Virgos are the people you go to for sage advice and who can help ground you. They love being in nature, especially in solitude, but they can also be quite extroverted and playful in a social setting. Cypress and Ho Wood capture the softer side of the Virgo person, while Pink Peppercorn adds that spicy essence.
Crystal – Obsidian is a grounding stone that promotes spiritual strength, protection and reflection.
Revive – Energize & Awaken
Juniper Berry / Rosemary / Grapefruit
Sign – LIBRA (9/23-10/22): Libras are ruled by Venus, the planet of love, which enhances their sensuality and charming magnetism. They are associated with lighter florals and citrusy aromas like Grapefruit and Rosemary. Libras are romantic, balanced and energetic – a perfect match to the Revive aromatherapy blend.
Crystal – ROSE QUARTZ: Rose Quartz is known as the stone of love because of its healing relationship properties and ability to enhance love - both for the self and for others.
Support Breathe – Protect & Uplift
Eucalyptus / Tea Tree / Pine
Sign – CAPRICORN (12/22-1/19): Our Capricorn friends are always working hard and setting goals, which is to be expected as they are ruled by Saturn. The dichotomy between the finer things in life and earthly comforts lands Capricorn among the cool aromas of Pine and Eucalyptus.
Crystal –JADE: Jade supports health and growth as well as financial abundance, which is extremely important to Capricorns.
