Essential Oils For Scorpio Season!
Welcome to Scorpio season.
Lavender, Patchouli and Frankincense are oils that have a healing and harmonizing effect on Scorpios.
Lavender is a perfect aroma for Scorpio season, being a herb dedicated to Hecate, the queen of the underworld who assists in transitory phases in life, and is the goddess of witches and sorcerers.
Add 5 to 10 drops to an evening bath to melt away the stresses of the day and soothe the soul.
For insomnia, blend a drop of lavender into a smidgen of base oil and massage onto the soles of the feet to induce deep sleep. Lavender is one of the few essential oils that can be worn neat and is a great addition to your first aid box. Keep close to your cauldron when cooking, it is a magical healer for burns.
Frankincense provides healing and purification for Scorpio.
It is an ancient, spiritual plant, that can help Scorpio to release fears, and sever ties to the past that are blocking growth. Frankincense assists in rebirth and empowerment through facing buried issue. Apply to an oil diffuser or inhale directly from the bottle. Frankincense helps to deepen the breath and clear clutter from the mind, making this a perfect incense for your yoga, prayer or meditation session.
Patchouli resonates with Scorpio’s personality.
It is deep, sensual, and has a powerful effect on all those who catch its musky scent. It deters moths and even psychic vampires. It is a grounding, earthy resin, that brings you back you from the heavenly heights, right back into your body, making it a perfect oil for spaced out personalities that need some terra firma.

It makes an exotic, comforting room fragrance, when diffused or added to a bath to revive the spirit.
Instructions and Safety
There are many ways to absorb essential oils. You can either use a diffuser, add up to 5 drops to bath or have an Aromatherapy Massage. I suggest using 10 drops to every 40ml carrier oil for a massage.
Always do a skin test for oils you’ve never used, in the unlikely event of an allergy. To do this, add a drop to the back of your wrist, via a cotton bud, apply a plaster and wait for 24 hours.
There are some oils which are fine to use during pregnancy, though lots of them aren’t. Please check before use and do not ingest or apply the oils neat…
