Air Signs: Gemini, Libra, Aquarius
Air signs are innovative, switched-on creatures of the zodiac. These lofty individuals are master communicators who love to show off their adventurous, fun-loving side every now and then.
Gemini: May 22 – June 21
Geminis are witty, wise, and whimsical all in one. Represented by the twins, these air signs are dual-powered by nature. They are flourishing social butterflies who love their independence and alone time and are profoundly emotional beings who feel intensely yet are methodical and calculated in their decision-making. They get the best of both worlds!
Layered incense scents will appeal to the Gemini’s dual, easily bored nature. Bright, fresh summery smells stimulate their minds and keep their senses sharp. This intoxicating mix of sage, calming lavender, and sweetgrass will create a long-lasting, delightful aroma to keep any Gemini on their toes.

Libra: Sept. 23 – Oct. 22
Libras seek balance in all aspects of life. These air signs are charming, highly-social individuals who thrive on keeping their home, work life, and relationships orderly and perfectly maintained. Libras are great conversationalists who protect their peace and the delicate harmony of their sacred space.
Libras enjoy simple lush scents that lightly decorate the air and turn their nose up at heavy, overpowering woodsy smells. Light and soothing floral incense with notes of honeysuckle and bright lemon thyme are perfect for promoting balance and clarity in any Libra’s busy world.

Aquarius: Jan. 21 – Feb. 18
As the only fixed sign of the air gang, an Aquarius is determined, passionate, and values stability in their life. Aquariuses are free spirits at heart; their idealistic and humanitarian nature makes them deep-feeling individuals, even if they seem outwardly detached. These air signs are naturally energetic and eccentric about the things and people they love most and have a strong and stabilized set of morals.
Since these quirky and complex water bearers value knowledge and appreciate life’s simple, mind-stimulating pleasures, intensely Earthy, musky scents, like patchouli, are perfect for any space-age Aquarius. This naturally psychedelic blend of patchouli, jasmine, and sage will soothe and empower this air sign while eliminating stress and unwanted energies from their space!

Water Signs: Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces
Water signs are emotionally intuitive and sensitive individuals who pride themselves on being in tune with their emotions and those of others. Dreamy, imaginative, and slightly introverted, this sign gang is always in their feels.
Cancer: June 21 – July 22
Like their crab counterpart, Cancers have tough exteriors. These water signs take a while to come out of their shell, but everyone knows they’re big softies on the inside. Ruled by the moon and governed by the tides, it’s no wonder this sign’s mood changes so quickly! Cancers take great pleasure in the joys of being a homebody and greatly value their alone time.
Warm, cozy scents will appeal to Cancer’s inner homemaker magic. Sugary sweet scents like warm berry blends are perfect for keeping them calm and in their element. Stray away from strong woodsy scents that may cause a Cancer to feel off-balance.

Scorpio: Oct. 23 – Nov. 21
There are few things in life more mysterious than a Scorpio. Often mistaken for a fire sign, these scorpions are fiercely independent and passionate creatures by nature. This sign keeps their cards close to their chest, but don’t be fooled, they’re just as emotional and sensitive as their water sign counterparts.
Thick, heavy scents will resonate with a Scorpio’s passionate and sensual psyche. This enigmatic blend of frankincense, woodsy myrrh, and black rose will match this sign’s intensity and provide gentle notes of healing and purification for the mind, body, and environment!

Pisces: Feb. 19 – Mar. 20
Pisces are overflowing with curiosity and compassion. These sensitive water signs have a dreamy imagination and love to indulge in the arts or any other creative outlet. Empathetic souls at heart, Pisces are deeply caring creatures who tend to have their heads stuck in the clouds. Intense yet calming scents like sandalwood, jasmine, and cinnamon are great for keeping these dreamers grounded while not being too harsh.
Ruled by the water sign of Pisces, known as the fish, these signs are heavily connected to and influenced by the ocean. Salty, crisp scents will also feel like home to them!

Earth Signs: Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn
Earth signs are naturally grounded individuals who are down-to-earth, literally. This sign trio has deeply practical, methodical, and ambitious minds. They like to keep things slow and steady, like mother Earth herself.
Taurus: Apr. 20 – May 20
They don’t call this sign “the bull” for nothing. Tauruses are very stubborn, hardheaded creatures of the zodiac. As a fixed Earth sign, Taurus is deeply rooted and connected to all things grounded and solid. These creatures of habit find great comfort in consistency and stability. Tauruses are very loyal, warm, and incredibly resilient individuals.
This isn’t to say that Taurus doesn’t enjoy the finer things in life because they do. Taurus believes treating themselves to a bit of luxury every now and then is an obvious must. Sweet, aromatic scents of fruity, flowery richness will appeal to a Taurus’s sense of lavishness and will work to eliminate anxieties and keep their solar plexus chakra wide open.

Virgo: Aug. 23 – Sept. 22
Elegant, orderly, and reliable, these Earth signs take being humble to another level. Virgos are hard-working individuals that seek perfection in all aspects of life. These energetic go-getters are always on the go, chasing their next life-altering adventure. Virgos are fine with fully committing themselves to their next big project, relationship, or goal.
Late August to Mid-September is a transitional time for many people, especially Virgos. Soothing and re-aligning scents are great for these always-busy Earth babies. Calm and comforting scents will nicely counteract the Virgos go, go, go mentality. Notes of sweet dragonfruit, peach, and subtle sandalwood will calm this sign and help them fragrant their serene space.

Capricorn: Dec. 21 – Jan. 20
Like the other Earth signs, Capricorns love working hard and getting ahead in life. They are materialistic, strong-willed, and highly loyal. These sea goats value living comfortably and treating themselves and their loved ones to the finer things in life. Capricorn’s main ruling tarot card is the devil, which is part of the major arcana. The devil card represents this sign’s strong-willed nature and reminds them to maintain balance.
An uplifting, motivating blend of blackberry, soft plum, and subtle pawpaw will create a peaceful scene for Capricorns that need some well-deserved R&R. The ambiance of burning incense will also appeal to their love for all things aesthetically pleasing!

Fire Signs: Aries, Leo, Sagittarius
Last but not least are the feisty fire signs. This on-fire trio is full of spice (in all aspects of life), passion, and fearlessness. The starry-eyed fire gang is bursting with energy, and they love to live large, loud, and lavish. Think you’d win in an argument against a fire sign? Think again.
Aries: Mar. 21 – Apr. 19
Mars, the planet of anger, passion, sex, and war, rules over this rambunctious ram. Aries are assertive, lusty, and natural-born leaders. This feisty fire sign isn’t afraid to speak their mind or take the lead (in fact, they’d prefer it!). These dynamic balls of energy are known for their undeniable charm and charisma, and let’s not forget about their incredibly short tempers.
Spice, (more) spice, and everything nice will appeal to an Aries’s fiery senses. The rich, woodsy scent of sandalwood is refreshing, uplifting, and heavy, just like you, Aries!
