Zodiac signs are a fun, spiritual way to interpret your personality and your life. And while we’re not experts in the astrological field (we’ll save that for Susan Miller), we’re definitely experts in essential oils. So next time you’re reading your horoscope or need to make some space for yourself, consider diffusing our suggested essential oil pairing for a truly transcendent experience.

Aries (fire sign, March 21 to April 19): Spruce Essential Oil


You’re ambitious, confident, and passionate, diving into life head-first and feeling it all along the way. With a zest for life, you welcome the start of the spring season—which means you’re perfectly paired with woodsy yet fresh Spruce Essential Oil. Its forest scent is bold yet approachable, just like you.

Taurus (earth sign, April 20 to May 20): Ylang Ylang Essential Oil


You’ve got a penchant for all things soft and relaxing, whether that be your surroundings or your clothing. You’re hard-working but make sure to enjoy life’s luxuries, too, making you an ideal match for Ylang Ylang Essential Oil. This exotic floral has a lot of depth and a touch of opulence, meaning it’ll turn your space into an alluring oasis.

Gemini (air sign, May 21 to June 20): Bergamot Essential Oil


Geminis are known for duality, which can be interpreted in many ways; we choose to think of it as your ability to multitask, to think on your feet, to adapt to your environment. Thus you’re Bergamot Essential Oil: its aroma is a mixture of citrus and spice, and it is truly great no matter the time or location.

Cancer (water sign, June 21 to July 22): Rosemary Essential Oil


A little shy in the beginning but with a lot of love to give, you take some time to get to know. You’re also fiercely loyal and deeply genuine, happy to lend a helping hand and take care of others. Thus you’re Rosemary Essential Oil: this herbal product is rich and nourishing, and while it may be a hard sell at first (isn’t rosemary what you put on potatoes?), it’s really got so much to offer.

Leo (fire sign, July 23 to August 22): Cedarwood Essential Oil


You’re courageous and striking, a consistent and reliable companion. You’re also a born leader, and you’ve got an instantly memorable personality. As such, you’re a match for Cedarwood Essential Oil—this comforting, warming, woodsy oil is strong and enveloping, not unlike your charisma.

Virgo (earth sign, August 23 to September 22): Eucalyptus Essential Oil


You, virgo, are a supportive friend, a deep thinker, and a diligent worker. You are also logical and detail-oriented and dependable, so we’ve got you paired with Eucalyptus Essential Oil; a long-time favourite in the essential oil world thanks to its spa-like aroma, it’s herbal and energizing and consistently wonderful.

Libra (air sign, September 23 to October 22): Lavender Essential Oil


With a flair for creativity and an eye for design, you love beauty in all its forms. You also adore balance and intelligence, which makes Lavender Essential Oil the one for you. Its glorious powdery scent and its multitude of uses for both home and beauty rituals mean it’s your match made in harmonious heaven.

Scorpio (water sign, October 23 to November 21): Frankincense Essential Oil


You follow your intuition, and for good reason; it rarely leads you astray. You’re also very in tune with your emotions, and you’re not afraid to go after what you want. You, scorpio, are Frankincense Essential Oil; this smoky, spicy oil comes from an ancient resin that has historic ties to spirituality and religion. Thus it’s your aromatic match—it’s sacred, beloved, and evocative.

Sagittarius (fire sign, November 22 to December 21): Sweet Orange Essential Oil


Ready for adventure, you’re the life of any party. You’ve got the gift of the gab, too, with plenty of wit and humour easily weaved into your memorable conversations. That makes you just like Sweet Orange Essential Oil—bright and lively, it’s a failsafe citrus loved by all. Just try not to fall for its charms.

Capricorn (earth sign, December 22 to January 19): Peppermint Essential Oil


With strong focus and a thick skin, you’re determined yet playful. You take charge and make things happen, which is a trait the rest of us could stand to sharpen—thus you’re Peppermint Essential Oil, which can help with concentration and add a sense of freshness, too. Its cooling, minty aroma is your ideal scent companion.

Aquarius (air sign, January 20 to February 18): Geranium Essential Oil


You go your own way, carve your own path. You’ve got flair and panache, but you’re a bit non-conformist, too, which means you keep things interesting. Your match is Geranium Essential Oil, which is a floral that has a subtle minty undertone. Multifaceted is the name of its game and the name of yours, too.

Pisces (water sign, February 19 to March 20): Grapefruit Essential Oil


Compassionate and sensitive, you’re a friend to one and all; you have a vibrant energy and a creative side, as well, so you’re always inspiring to be around. This makes you great alongside Grapefruit Essential Oil: zesty and invigorating, this citrus oil can boost anyone’s mood (and you can, too).
