Oh you irresistible Aries
I am an Aries magnet. My wife is an aries, my horse is an aries, BOTH of my parents were aries, two of my exes are aries, and I have some lovely aries friends. So creating this blend and post was a challenge because I REALLY wanted to nail it. I also wanted to understand why tempestuous Scorpio me is drawn to aries.
One word: loyalty
Okay two words: loyalty and drive. In those ways, we speak a very similar language. We are also both a little (or a lot) shy about our real sh!t.
Let's get into irresistible Aries and the essential oils that bring out their awesome and cool off their fire.
Key Oil: Peppermint
Oil Blend: Lavender, Roman Camomile, and Peppermint (yum).
Those born under this first sign of the Zodiac are natural leaders who are ambitious, industrious, courageous, confident and always passionate. These first house rams are born leaders and take tasks as challenges, ready to ram headlong through any obstacles in their way. Co-workers or friends might find the Aries nature over-bearing and willful, competitive and aggressive, but these are the very qualities that if seen as positive, can initiate and achieve anything the Aries puts his mind to. Still, the Arien has to be careful not to plow over colleagues or friends in his efforts to create. Their determination and pioneering spirit, to lead through their fiery, energetic and competitive spirit is prone to headaches and stress related problems.
In the old myths, Mars is the god of war and Ariens are born warriors. They love a good fight, and will vigorously battle with great spirit and courage, to bravely champion noble causes. They tend not to have any underhanded plans of attack, but rather are blunt and to the point in everything they do. Sometimes, however, the fighting spirit gets out of hand, to the point that Aries starts arguments and quarrels just to get that “rush” that comes with a good fight. Like any good warrior, Aries needs the wisdom to know when to lay down the sword. A ram vents anger more readily than most signs, often unaware that those in their company have assumed the worst, that their relationship is now over. But it is just the Aries blowing off steam in their typical fiery intensity. The ram needs to be aware of his own explosive expression and let others know to move out of the line of fire.
This is the sign of the “I AM” belief, and certainly rams believe that they are the center of their world. An Aries person is independent, self-motivating, self-actualizing, and driven by desire. It is a myth that Aries people are always bold and brash in nature. In reality, most Aries folks are shy at first. Only when a Ram gets to know you and trust you, she will more fully express her true warmth and enthusiasm. Arians have a youthful air to them, enjoying sports and competitions. They enjoy speed and getting things done quickly. Penned up rams get cranky and irritable and thus Aries need exercise to support a healthy flow of the Martian energy. Rams have the strength and fortitude to thrive both in teamwork events and in individual activities. They are not afraid to be alone and will charge ahead without support from others.
Peppermint essential oil is excellent for calming the fire! Peppermint can totally chill out the ambitious Aries who will find themselves rejuvenated, refocused and ready for a fresh start. A whiff of its radiant aroma will help alleviate those pesky headaches and when mixed into a massage oil, peppermint oil can help with those tender joints and cramped muscles, enabling an Aries to continue forward with their driving desires. Peppermint oil is also an excellent way to reduce the stress often felt by this sign, as well as remove those pesky headaches, enabling an Aries to continue forward with their driving desires.
Essential oils that can soften and calm the Martian’s assertive fire are chamomile, lavender, marjoram, rose, patchouli, celery seed, and peppermint.

Essential oils that can open the Aries to better fellowship and altruism are geranium, bergamot, jasmine, cedarwood, cypress, helichrysum, rosewood, sandalwood and patchouli.
Essential oils that support health and strength of character are basil, black pepper, juniper, eucalyptus, tea tree, cardamom, geranium, lemon, grapefruit, peppermint, rosemary and sage.
