I am Libra.
Roll on this essential oil blend to envelop your body and senses in the energy of Libra.
The glyph, or symbol, for Libra is a scale—a sign of justice, balance, fairness.
Libras are peacemakers (Gandhi was a Libra), diplomats. They seek to build bridges, to foster connection and harmony, instead of conflict or anger or discord.
When I think of Libra, I think of the Judge, the arbiter who seeks to see both sides of an argument to make a sound decision rooted in justice.
Sometimes, this means Libras may feel indecisive, weighing both sides, or they may get lost in other’s opinions. When feeling lost, we ask them to return to “Who am I?” and find their strength, integrity, and clarity within.
Libras have an air quality, meaning they are intellectually stimulated, drawn to good books and engaging conversations. They tend to like the intellectual pursuit of resolution and peacemaking.
Libra is ruled by the planet Venus, a planet that celebrates the love of beauty and arts. Libras are often connoisseurs with impeccable, balanced taste.
Libra is associated with the “House of Partnership,” which means they are often wonderful partners in romance, friendship, and business. They connect with people of diverse backgrounds and ages and often carry charm.
Because Libra is connected to the scale, they may develop health problems or feel overwhelmed if they lose sight of balance in work or, as lovers of beauty and good taste, if they overindulge.
About the Oils
This oil blend is rooted in Geranium, the supreme balancer.
Palmarosa also offers the energy of balance. It has a feminine scent but masculine power, which means it teaches us to lead and adjudicate with power and strength, but also gentleness and love.
Palmarosa grasses are common, on roadsides and in fields, meaning it equalizes, touching almost everyone’s daily life.
Traditionally, palmarosa was used as a dried herb to treat fevers. So, when situations become heated and we are asked to step up to the plate and make peace, palmarosa reminds us to cool down and continue with ease, compassion, and a level head.
Lavender, also gracing this blend, is a universal healer, offering balance to all skin types and to our souls. It helps us focus our minds, its aroma stimulating mental alertness for clear judgment. It is an oil of peace and clarity.
It liberates the throat chakra, encouraging us to speak our truth, and strengthens the crown chakra, where intuition comes in to guide us.
Lastly, neroli fills this blend, an oil that bewitches the senses. It reminds us to move from our heads into our bodies, rooting us like a tree that cannot be blown over easily despite the whims or winds of others. It is an oil of virtually unrivaled beauty, calling us to live with joie de vivre.

With each essential oil, we take our cue from myths and stories of the past and our senses, allowing the lores of how they were used, their color, their scent, and how they make us feel to help us conjure the intuitive energy and properties of each oil.
