Best Mercury Retrograde Oils

As a formulator of essential oil blends and metaphysician for more than three decades, I frequently get mercury retrograde complaints. 

Years ago I broke the code for what essential oils to use to enhance the planetary rulers of the different zodiac signs.

Here are the KEY essential oils for you to use:

Lemongrass (
Cymbopogon Citratus)

A pleasant, fresh lemon aroma Lemongrass oil has a regulating and tonic action on your body, mind and spirit making it excellent for renewal of your life energies on all levels.

  • If you're feeling overwhelmed lemongrass can help refresh and renew your life energies (mind, body and soul).
  • Promotes release of mental and emotional negative blockages.
  • Wealth attraction oil, use it alone or in a blend.
  • Promotes positive, feel good vibes.
  • Promotes relaxation.
  • Supports a 'go with the flow' mindset.
  • Helpful for calming an uptight, controlling mind.
  • Helps relieve a too rigid attitude.

Frankincense (Boswellia frereana or Boswellia carterii

One of the ‘Holy’ oils from ancient times when it was considered more valuable than gold Frankincense oil has a powerful and enticing wood aroma that sweetly sparkles with freshness and a hint of spice.

  • Frankincense oil promotes integrity with Self. 
  • Helps you take a deep breath before doing something foolish that you may later regret.
  • One of the best oils to enhance your meditation and spiritual practices.
  • Supports an intuitive and contemplative state of mind.
  • Helps you build mental stamina.

Ylang Ylang III (Cananga odorata)

Softly sweet and warm the scent of Ylang Ylang III (pronounced “eelang”) is less sweet and floral, and more earthy than the other “fractions” of this aromatic plant.

  • Deeply calming Ylang III has one of the highest sesquiterpene contents of all the essential oils which gives it antispasmodic and sedative action.
  • Its exquisitely intoxicating aroma is useful for dispelling fear, nervousness, depression, worry and anxiety.
  • Healing oil for those with a controlling, more masculine, ego driven psyche.
  • Helps you develop the feminine and intuitive side of your nature.
