Finding the Right Scent: Essential Oils and the Zodiac

There’s an essential oil for basically everything these days. Essential oils are a wonderful tool to use for a variety of issues that you might be having. If you have difficulty sleeping, breathing, need to relax, have anxiety, or suffer from another ailment, essential oils can be one way to soothe your body and your mind.

Each essential oil has its own uses, and we each have our own personalities that interact with these oils. Each sign under the zodiac has different characteristics, so different essential oils might be more beneficial to some signs versus others.
