Known as the motherly nurturer of the Zodiac, Cancers are fiercely protective of their loved ones. These moon children are full of emotions, ebbing and flowing with the tides. While they may hide in their safe shell from time to time, they’ll come out to play when they feel ready. And when they do, their soft and sensitive nature will melt your heart.
This DIY perfume is inspired by the essence of Cancer. Use it to nurture your inner child. Cancer energy provides a safe place to get in touch with your deep emotions.
