doTERRA just released this amazing new blend called Adaptive. Adaptive is great to use to support feelings of calm, uplift the mood, and reduce stressful feelings.
This video goes over our thoughts and uses of Adaptive and some ideas on how you might use it.
► Adaptiv™ Capsules Calming Blend // Take one a day to help mood-boost and tension-reduce. The following essential oils help with those feelings: Lavender, Coriander, Wild Orange, and Fennel along with Sceletium, GABA, and Ahiflower®.
Buckle up, it’s time for some science.
A phytochemical ingredient in Sceletium supports healthy emotional responses to stress and promotes happy feelings. doTERRA goes onto explain that it “balances healthy levels of mood-stabilizing hormones and improves cognitive function while combating occasional nervousness.” Raise your hand if you need this.

GABA is a quieting neurotransmitter. A neurotransmitter is a chemical messenger that sends info between neurons. GABA promotes comforting effects while reducing anxious/fearful feelings. GABA does this by decreasing neuronal excitability–it’s why it’s called “the brakes of the brain.”
► Adaptiv™ Calming Blend (This is the oil.) // Add 3-4 drops + Epsom Salt to your bath water. Diffuse (Jenn + Lindsey’s favorite way to use it) in rooms and at times of high stress in your home. (Getting ready for school, that insane time right before dinner, during study sessions, before a big meeting or presentation, etc.) Made with the following oils that reduce stressful feelings: Lavender, Magnolia, Neroli, and Sweetgum. While these oils uplift: Wild Orange and Spearmint. Copaiba and Rosemary are included to reduce anxious feelings.
► Adaptiv™ Touch Calming Blend // Apply topically to the webbing of the hands, base of the neck and shoulders, or base of the skull. You can even add a drop to your hands, rub them together, and then inhale deeply. (Be your own diffuser on-the-go!) Use when you’re feeling restless, nervous, anxious, or wound up.
