I am Sagittarius.
Roll on this essential oil blend to envelop your body and senses in the energy of Sagittarius.
Sagittarius is a fire sign, embodied by the fires of mid-winter celebrations (think: candles, lanterns, bonfires) as opposed to the fires of the sun. The sign culminates in the Winter Solstice.
Also known as “The Archer” or “The Centaur,” Sagittarius is depicted as part horse, part man carrying an arrow. The horse symbolizes travel and exploration, while the man symbolizes the thinker, teacher, philosopher, his arrow representing his pointed search for truth.
Ruled by Jupiter, Sagittarians like to expand their world—to travel, to discover new ideas and religions, to grow their knowledge. They are inquisitive, and unlike Aries who want to explore new ground and pioneer new frontiers, Sagittarians inquire to clarify and comprehend. They are also often passionate about sharing what they’ve learned, and many find themselves as formal or informal teachers, spiritual leaders, and lecturers.
Bound by knowledge, Sagittarians value truth in their work and in their relationships. They are often sociable, genuinely interested in others, and love good conversation. While they may seem serious, they tend to be witty and have a sense of humor.
Called to explore, Sagittarians crave freedom, including in their relationships, and reject any limits on their search to discover.
About the Oils
The prime oil in this blend is sandalwood, an oil that best invokes freedom and fearless travel. It offers confidence, good-luck and protection as the Sagittarian explores, and a sense of physicality, grounding the often intellectual Sagittarian in their body. It is an oil of divination, of deep relaxation, of expansion and self-expression.
Herbaceous and woody, tea tree oil in this blend renews the Sagittarian, purifying their minds for mental height and clarity, and offering stability to their freedom-loving nature.
Clary sage also graces this blend, strengthening the Sagittarian’s crown chakra for spiritual and intellectual connection, vision, truth, and knowledge that doesn’t stem only from books but from the Universe. It is an oil of wisdom, clarity, and clear comprehension.
Lastly, while some attribute eucalyptus to the moon, a cooling element, I feel eucalyptus’s heat and have added it to the blend to match Sagittarius’s winter fires. For the explorer, eucalyptus brings new energy to a situation, a fresh set of eyes, and mental clarity. Goal-seeking, outdoor-enthusiasts, and intensely curious, Sagittarians are well matched by eucalyptus’s high water content, which promotes fluidity, ease amidst transition, and an ability to morph to changing situations and new encounters.How it works
