Essential Oils for Capricorns

Essential Oils for Capricorns

December 22- January 20

Planetary Ruler - Saturn

Element- Earth

People born under the sign of Capricorn have a practical approach to problems and are stable in the face of crisis. They tend to be deliberate and methodical. These traits make them natural leaders, but can also lead to over work and burnout. Sandalwood and chamomile essential oils help with relaxation while patchouli and bergamot ease burnout. 

While Capricorns are sensitive to the needs of others and have loyal friends they tend to be loners who are prone to pessimism. Melissa and peppermint oils help lift the spirit and get rid of melancholy and support a feeling of joy.  

Blood orange and lemon are excellent choices for our Capricorn friends to both promote feelings of cheerfulness and well being while clearing the mind and enhancing natural focus. Pine supports patience, strength and their logical, practical nature.

Heart Chakra Balancing Essential Oils



Heart Chakra -Anahata

Our heart chakra is located in the center of the chest and is the center of the chakra system. It is the link between the upper and lower chakras. The associated color is green and its element is air.
In the body your heart chakra sees over the heart, blood, circulatory system, lungs,thymus and breasts. .

Indications your heart chakra is well balanced 

Your heart chakra is the source of love and well being. It allows you to love others unconditionally, be generous and compassionate. A well balanced heart chakra allows you to feel joy and self love. People feel at peace around you as you create safe and supportive environment free from judgement. You can appreciate the beauty around you and have the ability to grieve in order to reach peace when necessary. Physically, when this chakra is in balance your thymus, heart and lungs are free from disease and functioning properly.

Signs of imbalance

Indications of imbalance include fear, jealousy, despair and lack of empathy. One may feel withdrawn, possessive, critical or controlling. Imbalance can manifest in the body as disease of the lungs or circulatory system including the heart. Breast cancer can also indicate imbalance. 

Achieving balance

Spending time in nature or a flower garden is simple and effective way to help bring about balance.
Essential oils to help achieve balance include rose, geranium, jasmine, lavender and neroli. Using them is easy.
 ~ Apply a drop over your heart and massage in then rub your hands together and breath deeply while thinking peaceful, loving thoughts.
~Add a drop or two to a room or necklace diffuser.
~  Make a simple room spray by combining 15-20 drops of essential oil blend with 2 ounces  distilled water in a spray bottle. Shake well before use.
~Dress a candle by smoothing a drop or two of your oil of choice to the rim of a candle before burning. A green candle is best for this as it's the color for the heart.

Throat Chakra Balancing Essential Oils

The throat chakra, also known as Visshuddha, is the center of communication. It is the fifth chakra and the associated color is blue and is located at the base of your throat.

When your throat chakra is in balance you are able to speak your truth and stand up for your beliefs. You are able to express yourself creatively and accept originality. It is easy to be a good listener and understand what others are actually saying. You are patient and honest.

When your throat chakra is out of balance you may find yourself talking or gossiping too much or even being shy or afraid to speak up. It is difficult to express yourself verbally and artistically. You may find yourself overeating, smoking or drinking too much alcohol.

Essential oils can be used to help balance the throat chakra. A drop can be applied directly to the base of your throat or you can diffuse the oils. Another suggestion is to "dress" a candle by rubbing a drop or two of oil on a candle. A blue one is best as it's the color associated with your throat. Creating a peaceful environment will help achieve the balance.

Some oils I like for the throat chakra are frankincense, chamomile, geranium, bergamot and spearmint. Lavender is another good choice especially in blends. It has beneficial properties for all the chakras and can be added to your own blends. Single note essential oils are available here. If you prefer, I offer a blend here. All of the highlighted oils are available in my shop. 

Achieving balance of your chakras is not difficult once you decide to go down that path. Using oils in conjunction with meditation, yoga or even on their own is a fragrant way to get there.

Crown Chakra Essential Oils

The crown chakra is located at the very top of your head- actually just a little above it. It is associated with spirituality, intuition and the the mind. Its colors are white and violet.
 When balanced one feels connected to others and a higher power. There is an awareness of higher consciousness, wisdom and what is sacred. It feels like life has purpose and bliss.
When it is out of balance one feels disconnected from spirit and body, cynical or close minded. A feeling of being all alone is common. Physical manifestations include feeling tired for no reason, chronic headaches and muscular skeletal issues

Essential oils can be used to help restore balance to your crown chakra. A drop can be applied directly to the chakra or you can diffuse the oils. Creating a peaceful, quiet environment and meditation will assist in achieving balance.
The oils I like best for the crown chakra are frankincense, myrrh, sandalwood and juniper. Lavender is another good choice and is actually helpful in balancing all chakras. Use the oils individually or blend. You can find them individually in my shop by clicking here or as a ready to use blend here.
