I am Aquarius.
Roll on this essential oil blend to envelop your body and senses in the energy of Aquarius.
While Aquarius is an air sign, it is known as the Water Bearer. In mythological stories, the Water Bearer is often linked with the gods who poured the waters of life over Earth, meaning Aquarians often breathe new life into the world with their ideas and creations. In fact, while the water pouring from the Water Bearer’s pot may be just that, flowing water, it may also represent a flash of lightning, invoking Aquarius’s revolutionary nature.
Aquarians tend to be visionary, ahead of their time, independent, and any attempts to box them in will turn them off. They may be antiestablishment, and are often social reformers. However, they tend to take up humanitarian calls not as the one leading the charge and taking direct action, but often through their ideas and writings.
Often intelligent and a little unpredictable, Aquarians tend to choose partners and friendships based on shared interests and stimulating conversation. While they are very loyal and tend to be good and deep listeners, they may also appear detached or stubborn—it’s all or nothing for Aquarius! So we remind them to be gentle with themselves and compassionate to those around them. Unmoved by monotony and continually seeking mental stimulation, Aquarians may spend lots of time in their heads. We remind them to tune into the power of their bodies, too, and to root themselves in the earth.
About the Oils
This blend is illuminated by neroli, a grounding, sensuous, earthy powerhouse of an oil. Neroli is an aphrodisiac, inviting Aquarius to be turned on by life, by purpose, by invention. Neroli tunes them into their bodies, too, drawing them lower from their heads into their hearts and their roots.
Also selected for this blend is sandalwood. It is meditative, bringing Aquarius into a deep state of spiritual relaxation, calming the mind, freeing the body and spirit. It is an oil of confidence and freedom, matching Aquarius’s independent spirit, and it enhances Aquariaus's clairvoyance and intuition as they envision and breathe life into their creations.
Known as the “sweat of the gods,” frankincense offers a sacred energy to this blend. It, too, grounds Aquarius, providing deep stability and rooting while raising Aquarius through their crown chakra and up to the heavens to receive inspiration, guidance, and connection. It awakens the spiritual senses and vibrates at a high, healing frequency.
Lastly, peppermint adds life and lightness to this blend, its energy offering clarity and mental alertness, as well as a refreshing sense of activity. Rather than overstimulating, peppermint uplifts Aquarius, inviting them to create with pleasure.
