Essential oils are safe for everyone, however some essential oils may be more effective for some people than others. Looking at eye color can be a great first step in choosing that perfect essential oil that will work best for you. Liz Fultcher from the Aromatic Wisdom podcast spoke in great detail about the essential oils best suited for specific eye colors, which is today’s blog post inspiration. She also explained how the color of your eyes can be a good marker for genetic health propensities which could be the main reason why certain essential oils work best for some than others. Enjoy 🙂
Blue eyes are called lymphatic genotypes which means that water elements are going to be a concern. Those with blue eyes could have propensities related to Kapha (Earth/Water) and Yin (Cold/Wet) constitutions. They tend to suffer from skin, respiratory, kidney, adrenal and allergy issues. This is why many water-related essential oils are beneficial for those with blue eyes such as bergamot, grapefruit and juniper berry. They also tend to be very symptomatic, meaning their symptoms tend to be very obvious, but slow and steady in progression. These essential oils are very beneficial for blue eyes.
- Juniper Berry
Brown eyes are called hematogenic genotype, meaning their genetic propensities tend to be blood and circulatory system related. Their most common health issues are mineral deficiencies, liver, gallbladder, hormones and digestive system. Geranium is especially useful for liver and colon related health concerns. Unlike those with blue eyes, they tend to suffer symptoms spontaneously from one minute to the next. One minute they can be perfectly fine, the next, they can be boiled over in pain. Common symptoms of this genotype would be constipation, cramps, anemia and varicose veins. The essential oils below would be the most beneficial for brown eyes.
- Black Pepper
- Wild Orange
Mixed eyes are called biliary genotype. Biliary eyes are very unique because they have the strengths and weaknesses of both blue and brown eyes. Their health propensities include liver, gallbladder and varicose veins just like brown eyes, but also pancreas, bile production and insulin related issues. Coriander essential oil is known for stabilizing insulin levels. The essential oils below are very beneficial for mixed colored eyes.
- Ylang Ylang
- Juniper Berry
