Essential Oils for Libra

Sept 22- Oct 21

Libra, the seventh house of the zodiac and ruled by Venus, is the sign of balance and harmony. Librans are gifted diplomats and have a great love for beauty and peace.

Librans tend to absorb the energy of those around them so it is important they be able to find harmony and balance in negative situations Some essential oils that can be used to help achieve this are chamomile, rose, jasmine, rose geranium, neroli and lavender.

People born under the sign of Libra love harmony. dislike conflict and will go along to get along in order to achieve that goal even if it is a false harmony. Essential oils  to bolster their sense of self  and increase courage include frankincense, pine and melissa/lemon balm.
Frankincense is especially useful in stressful situations and can be used by rubbing a couple of drops on the palms of the hands or soles of the feet for an almost instant clam and sense of peace.
My Aphrodite blend is perfect for Librans. The blend includes rose essential oil for harmony and balance along with frankincense for peace and courage. You can apply to the pulse points or use on your palms or soles of the feet as you would straight frankincense. Any of these oils can also be used in your diffuser.

Ants in my Pants!

 No, not really, but they are everywhere this year! Between the mild Winter and the lovely damp Spring the ants in my area have flourished as they haven't in years. They aren't staying outside where they belong either.
So, I got out my trusty Creepy Crawley repellent and started spritzing the door jambs and window casing. This slowed them down a bit, but they had me outnumbered.
At last the light bulb over my head lit up and I remembered a simple and effective ant eliminator that I haven't had to use for years. Simply mix equal parts sugar and borax, place in a shallow container and put it in the middle of their trail. (I use coffee can lids.) The ants will carry the borax laced sugar back to their nest and eliminate them all before you know it. 

Caution! Be sure to keep out of reach of pets and children!
