As the Cancer time of the year comes to an end it seems fitting to blog about this comfort loving and at times crabby sign of the zodiac. Cancer is a water sign and therefore emotional and sensitive. While Pisces uses intuition as a guide and Scorpio uses strong powers of persuasion to get what they need the Cancer is known to nurture those in their life in order to receive care in return. There is a sense of fear within the Crab that can manifest as stomach upset and even ulcers. Chamomile essential oil has long been known as a fabulous digestive aid because it calms and soothes the intestines. This same floral herb has the ability to aid in reducing fears by imparting a strong sense of tranquility when applied topically to the body. The typical Cancerian will retreat into their protective shell when emotions get out of hand and only in that space will they work through their issues. Chamomile essential oil can act as a guide when diving deep into the psyche by encouraging the release of tension from within the body and the mind. The shell of the crab can be likened to the home of a human and in this analogy the home of a Cancer will be cozy, comfortable and full of delicious food. While the Taurus loves to entertain in a luxurious space the Cancer enjoys a relaxed environment where he or she can take care of loved ones and practice their innate need to mother. This love of creature comforts creates a strong emotional connection with food and at times allows for overindulgence. This bad habit can make matters worse for the Crab who already has a tendency towards tummy troubles. Applying two drops of Chamomile essential oil to the abdomen immediately after meals is a great way to avoid stomach upset. The sweet and comforting aroma of Chamomile is great for adults as well as young children. Bring yourself and loved ones by the spa this summer to enjoy a healing treatment featuring this beautiful and delicate scent. Just take a load off and we will do the rest.
