Gemini Scents

This entry was posted in candle fragrance oils, Fragrance Oils, Natures Garden, soap fragrances, zodiac scents and tagged , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on by .

gemini scentsGemini Scents

Once again, it is that time to officially change the zodiac sign!  This year we wanted to do something a bit different.  So, for a little fun, we thought of researching exactly what fragrances appeal to people under a particular zodiac sign.  And, what we found in our search was what aromatic notes most likely correspond with certain astrological signs.  These fragrance oil suggestions contain aromatic notes that a person born under a specific Zodiac sign will like based on their common personality traits.

Beginning May 21st, Geminis energetically become the driving force in the spotlight. So, we at Natures Garden would like to be the first to announce, Happy Birthday Gemini!  And then cordially invite everyone to the fascinating world of Gemini scents.

Geminis are considered people born between the dates of May 21st and June 21st.

Sadly, we currently do not have anyone working at Natures Garden that is a Gemini.  However, we have friends and family that are Geminis.  They are a fun loving crowd that love to talk.  Being that they are highly intellectual, geminis are constantly questioning and are forever thirsting for knowledge.  And, dueled with their intellect, they are also vastly creative.  Since geminis balance a life of inquisitiveness and wisdom they are often the life of a social gathering and really know how to work a room.  But, on the flip side; geminis can also be great listeners who can tap into their library of information and experience and offer sound advice.

Gemini-  Clever, Imaginative, Adaptable, Spirited
Symbol- the Twins
Sign-  Air

This intellectual group is not only polite and energetic, but also adaptable to any situation. Dueling both a chatty side and a sympathetic ear, people with this sign need diversity. Gemini’s have a true admiration for fragrance oils that present a contrast but still manage to come together to make a beautiful aroma.

People that have the sign of Gemini really take to these fragrance notes:

Fruits: Grapefruit, Lemon, Tangerine

Herbs: Lavender, Spearmint, Peppermint

Nuts: Hazelnut, Walnut, Almond
