Aromatherapy by Personality Type

Like a good friend, a good essential oil can help reset your mood. And each oil is best at setting a different mood. Maybe you need a Pollyanna in your life—or a chill pill. Use this guide to pick your desired vibe.

THE PERSONALITIES

  1. 1

    POLLYANNA

    You know the friend who always puts a smile on your face? Bergamot is the eternal optimist oil. Research shows that bergamot oil may help reduce occasional feelings of anxiety and be uplifting for your mood. There’s even preliminary evidence that it may help support healthy cortisol levels and healthy circulation, too. To start your day on a positive note, blend bergamot and eucalyptus oils using the new vitruvi Move Diffuser.

    CHILL PILL

    Lavender is well-known for its soothing, restorative nature. It can help bring the mind and body into a calmer state. vitruvi Lavender Essential Oil is steam-distilled in France and blends well with eucalyptus, frankincense, and ylang-ylang.

    MORNING PERSON

    The friend who is the first to wake up after a night out, cheerfully makes coffee, and cleans up last night’s mess? Pink grapefruit oil. With its antioxidant properties and bright, crisp aroma, pink grapefruit is there for a lively refresh. vitruvi Grapefruit Essential Oil is cold-pressed from the rind of grapefruit and blends well with bergamot, peppermint, and spruce oils. Adding a couple of drops to your moisturizer or favorite scrub can give a brightening boost to your morning ritual, too.

    FREE SPIRIT

    Eucalyptus gives off “it’s-all-good” vibes. It’s often used by spas, and a few drops of eucalyptus oil in your morning shower can create a spalike feeling as you start the day. Or we like to blend eucalyptus, lavender, spruce, and grapefruit oils for a calming nighttime ritual.

    TREE HUGGER

    Connecting with nature helps us ground and decompress. With its deep, woodsy aroma, frankincense oil can create a calming mood and help you come down after a chaotic day. Steam-distilled in India, vitruvi Frankincense Essential Oil is great on its own or blended with lavender and bergamot oils.
