The Sun shifted into Libra this morning, marking the beginning of the fall season in the northern hemisphere. Libra’s fundamental goal in life is to release tension. That’s why it’s often associated with art and design– because experiencing something beautiful or aesthetically pleasing allows our minds to relax and enjoy the moment, rather than focusing on other concerns. Libra is acutely aware of any imbalances, seeking to create harmony in the surrounding atmosphere.
Being sensitive to the environment is challenging, to say the least! Anxiety and indecision can create immobility, which frustrates the initiative nature of Libra. In honor of my native Sun sign, I’m introducing Full Bloom Facial Mist, a blend of Geranium, Clary Sage, Frankincense, Helichrysum, and Lavender essential oils combined with Rose Hydrosol, Witch Hazel, Jojoba oil and distilled water.
Geranium and Clary Sage promote equilibrium inside and out, balancing hormones, emotions, and skin irritations. The powerful yet flowery scent of Geranium embodies the strength and sensitivity of the Sun in Libra, reminding us to honor ourselves as well as others. Frankincense and Helichrysum are ancient beauty secrets that help the skin retain moisture, reducing wrinkles and encouraging cell production. And Lavender, as always, is just good for everything. It relieves stress and anxiety and soothes the skin, and it also helps the other oils work more effectively.
I use this blend on my face daily, and I’ve found that it has greatly reduced the amount of moisturizer I have to buy. These oils are easily absorbed into the skin, unlike synthetic products that sit on top of the skin’s surface. Full Bloom is available in a 2 oz facial spray (or a 1 oz roll-on) for $15 (shipping is $3 extra in the U.S.) I now accept PayPal! Contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org for more info.
