zodiac essential oil rollers

Earlier this year I began an elemental herbalism course, which lays out the integration of and synergy between science and spirituality. The course outlines how fire, earth, water and air signs can directly benefit from different plants. I decided I would start sending all of my Young Living members a zodiac roller blend specifically created for their zodiac sign, in a zodiac Whimsy and wellness rollerball. I will be attaching this graphic for their reference. I even made corresponding diffuser blends according to the note theory. Scroll all the way down to download these graphics and the diffuser blends. Download these teach a zodiac class, or to share with your friends and community!
