Hello Sunshine’s custom blend of grapefruit, lime, and geranium essential oils — designed to vitalize and refresh your senses — is bold and dazzling, just like Leo. Leos are fearless followers of their hearts and rooted firmly in their authenticity.

This scent is as soothing and transcendent as Virgos are to their closest friends. A calming blend of botanicals, Eucalyptus + Lavender nods to Virgo’s uncanny ability to always figure out where they are amid the chaos. Blame it on their grounded spirit, maybe? Eucalyptus + Lavender is best experienced with an uncanny sense of spatial awareness, losing your keys, and working overtime to fix everyone’s life except your own.

Libra  ·  Orange + Clove

This custom blend of orange, clove, and cinnamon essential oils is crafted to encourage a welcoming environment — in other words, what Libra would do full-time if they didn’t have to work every day. This soothing, cozy scent serves as a tip of the hat to Libra’s empathy and warmth. Burns brightest with inconveniencing yourself to help others, a keen sense of justice, being outrageously charming, and allowing your inner child to come out and play.

Scorpio  ·  Moonglow

Bathe in the glow of this candle and feel the soft animal of your body return to you — and remember that your inner light is just as powerful as your inner shadows.

Sagittarius  ·  Forest Bathing

Capricorn  ·  Rosemary + Lemon

Capricorn probably isn’t reading this because they’re too busy setting goals and hitting them. This sweet, herbal blend naturally uplifts any space — exactly how Capricorn does when they’re around. Capricorn should light this candle whenever they’re tired of being the best at everything they do, arguing with their inner monologue, or scheming how to avoid being the center of attention.

Aquarius  ·  Of The Sea

Mysterious and unyielding, the ocean is a powerful force that is often misunderstood — just like our dear Aquarius friends. Of The Sea captures the calm and chaos of the ocean with notes of eucalyptus, lavender, and peppermint. It’s the perfect scent for name-dropping that obscure French philosopher, plotting your next escape from reality, self-isolation, or for refusing to admit you actually do have feelings.

Pisces  ·  Midnight Garden

Relaxing and romantic, Midnight Garden pairs perfectly with the wide-eyed wonder of dreamy Pisces. Herbaceous floral notes complement this candle’s complex, spicy undertones. This scent is best paired with getting lost in a daydream, seeing angel numbers everywhere, and wondering out loud to yourself, “Why can’t we all just be a little bit nicer to each other?”
