I am Capricorn.
Roll on this essential oil blend to envelop your body and senses in the energy of Capricorn.
Capricorn is the “sea goat”—goat in the front half, fish in the back, marking Capricorn’s ability to plumb the depths and rise to the heavens.
The deepest of the earth signs, Capricorn is rooted in the soul of the planet, which makes its soaring heights not impetuous or youthful, but wise.
Capricorns want to ascend the mountain, which means some are ambitious and career-oriented, while others transcend worldly goals to ascend another mountain—more spiritual, more philosophical. Which is why we find many poets, philosophers, and spiritual teachers born under this sign.
Their journey to the mountaintop is often taken painstakingly, one foot at a time, but they are also mysterious in their ascent, sometimes moving slowly only to make a sudden and huge leap.
Capricorns are ruled by the planet Saturn, so they value order and take their responsibilities seriously, including to their children, their partners, and their jobs. In their efforts to strive toward loyalty in their commitments, they may stray from their true heart’s desires, putting their responsibilities first. So we remind them to lead with their true heart’s intentions. At the same time, Capricorns may bound at a moment’s notice, realizing they’ve lost their way, and attempting to rediscover their true path quickly.
Philosophical and moral, Capricorns often want to be useful, to care for others. Should they take on too much, they may become depleted, emotionally restrained, worried, or reluctant to share their feelings. We encourage them to tune into their bodies and care for themselves. They deserve love and care, too.
About the Oils
The signature oil for Capricorn is vetiver, also earthy, deep brown, thick, and extracted from the roots of the plant, diving deep into the soil. Grown from a fragrant grass, vetiver is known as the “Oil of Tranquility,” offering peace and ease to the conscientious Capricorn who may worry about their loved ones or responsibilities. It is grounded and connected, drawing Capricorn into the present, the moment right here, now, and drawing them from their heads into their bodies.
Blue chamomile also graces this blend, an oil of eloquence, communication, understanding, and speaking truth. It honors the philosopher in Capricorn and the heavens they may reach—divining, envisioning, intuiting.
When Capricorn becomes overwhelmed or depleted, Juniper in this blend refreshes, restores, and energizes. Traditionally, juniper berries are used to support individuals feeling nervous exhaustion, mental fatigue, or angst. Its aroma is floral and uplifting.
Lastly is helichrysum, also known as immortelle. Helichrysum symbolizes immortality, the spiritual and divine aspect of Capricorn. It is an oil of immortal ideas and visions, of ancient artists and poets, and of those whose ambition seeks to carry them to the legendary mountaintop.How it works
