Lemon Essential Oil
🍋Lemon essential oil could be one of THE most versatile oils, and is the number one oil I recommend for people just starting out with essential oils.
Lemon has benefits for both your body and your mind, not to mention your house, and your family!
It is mood balancing, sharpens you up, improves focus and relieves stress. Drop one or two drops of lemon in your hand, rub your hands together and take a few deep breaths, you will immediately feel the effects! Give it a try!
Leave it on your kitchen bench and you will find you will think of all sorts of uses for it! I like to add a drop onto my bench after tidying up after cooking tea, then I wipe the whole bench with it on my cloth, it gets rid of cooking smells and gives you a burst of lemon happiness as you clean.Add to a bit of baking soda in the bottom of pots where there are stubborn bits of food - leave for a few minutes or overnight it very stubborn then you'll find it easier to clean off. A a few drops to your dishwater or to your rinse aid compartment in your dishwasher.
🍋 1 drop in a luke warm glass of water to start your day
🍋1 drop mixed with honey and warm water for a soothing drink
🍋1 drop added to a cup of chamomile tea - or tea of your choice
🍋1-3 drops mixed with a carrier oil in a small spray bottle for scrapes and boo boos
🍋1-2 drops onto your dry brush for body brushing
Use on your skin at night time, so there is no bother about sun sensitivity.
I could go on 😂
*Always read the label and follow the directions for use. Avoid sunlight and UV rays for at least 12 hours after application.
Using Essential Oils while I'm cleaning is one of my favourite ways of getting some Aromatherapy!
Add a couple of drops to your duster - my favourites for this are:
Eucalyptus, Bergamont, Lemon, Cypress, Wild Orange, Eucalpytus or Lavender. Try a couple of different oils together or one at a time.
Add a few drops of oil to your bucket of hot water for mopping floors, or a couple of drops to the pad of your steam mop.
Implementing Essential Oils into your everyday life is easy, and if you forget some days, you will notice the difference! You will miss them!!
I always start my day with a couple of drops of either Rosemary or Easy Air in my shower, pop the drops in the corner of your shower, not directly under the water then the steam diffuses them for you.
There are so many easy ways to enjoy essential oils and enjoy the rewards of some Aromatherapy during your day.

How do you choose Essential Oils Based on your Star Sign?
Well from an Astrological point of view, the signature oil is the oil that is most related to your Sun, your Moon sign and/or your Rising sign. To start with your could choose the oil that relates to your Sun Sign = your date of birth.
Nicholas Culpeper, a 17th-century English herbalist, physician, and astrologer known for his work in herbal medicine and astrology, created a method of ascribing ruling planets to plants. He believed that the celestial bodies, such as planets and stars, significantly influenced the properties and medicinal uses of plants. He ascribed a ruling planet to each plant based on his astrological observations and used this information to select essential oils and herbs for various purposes. I love reading about this way of using essential oils and herbs. Culpeper's Complete Herbal, First published over 350 years ago is an encyclopedic guide that extensively impacted modern holistic medicine. Although much of the medical advice must be taken with a pinch of salt, the engaging tone, enthusiasm, and expertise of the author are irresistible and highly entertaining.
Below are our Virgo, Libra and Scorpio Astroaroma matches.
Lavender Essential OilFor our Virgo's ♍ - 🌿 Virgo is ruled by Mercury the planet of mental intelligence and communication. They often suffer from mental exhaustion due to hyperactivity of their nervous system which will result in lower digestive disorders which are ruled by Virgo. They know how to give but are unable to receive, may worry obsessively, be critical of themselves and others, and miss out on fun when strongly focused on duty. Lavender is one of the most used oils for its antibacterial, balancing, relaxing, stimulant, antipyretic, analgesic, antispasmodic & wound-healing properties. Lavender can ease the tendency to worry, soothe achy muscles & promote restful sleep.
Geranium Essential OilFor our Libra's ♎-🌿Libra is ruled by Venus the planet of love & beauty, they are attracted to all things pleasurable & refined (e.g. fashion, the arts & love). When unbalanced they experience indecision, mental confusion, emotional disorientated, and nervousness, are prone to procrastination, easily swayed by others with fluctuating energy levels. This may manifest as lower back & kidney problems which is ruled by Libra. Geranium's primary function is to balance, a key word for Librans. It acts as an antidepressant, aphrodisiac, hormone balancer, anti inflammatory and insect repellent. Helps maintain calmness and equilibrium, with great benefits for beauty and female reproductive disorders.
Patchouli Essential OilFor our Scorpio's -🌿Scorpio is ruled by Pluto the planet of death and transmutation, they are attracted to the deep, secretive, psychological and mystical side of the death and rebirth cycle. If unable to let go of control and flow, or are jealous, suspicious, manipulative, possessive, or judgmental, they will exhibit problems with the colon and reproductive system. Patchouli is primarily an aphrodisiac, decongestant, antidepressant, regenerative and antiseptic. Powerfully potent, in South East Asia, this oil used to treat snake bites and poisonous insects. Hence the healing effect of this oil.
How does it work?
Each essential oil has its own energy and vibration, and when mixed with the energy of a person’s astrological birth chart — the planets, stars, and elements assigned to them from birth—an individual can achieve greater health and harmony in their life. Through this practice of blending astrology with aromatherapy, practitioners and healers are better able to tailor the aromatherapy treatments to meet the unique needs of each person.
