What’s In Your Sign? I’ve devised the following for each of the zodiac signs:
- A diffuser pendant: A small flat lava bead surrounded by copper wire (with silver colored finish) depicting the sign. Exact pendants may vary due to their one-of-a-kind, handmade nature.
- 2 diffuser blends: One feminine, and one unisex, both of which are formulated to balance and/or enhance the sign’s main personality traits.
The blends are devised to be used with the diffuser necklace, or can be used with any aromatherapy diffuser! They are made purely of essential oils of the highest quality, so just use as your diffuser directs. For these diffuser necklaces, 1 – 2 drops every 2 to 3 days is usually sufficient! Get one of your sign’s blends or both, or not feeling what I picked for you? Choose what speaks to you the most!
