Stress Reduction & Essential Oils

How is the Adaptiv™ System Beneficial?

Use the Adaptiv System to help get comfortable with new surroundings or situations. When a big meeting is coming up, or for other important events, keep Adaptiv Calming Blend on hand. In preliminary studies, the scent of Lavender, a main ingredient of Adaptiv, has been found to contribute to an environment conducive to performing tasks requiring sustained attention. Lavender, Magnolia, Neroli, and Sweetgum provide stress-relieving effects while Wild Orange and Spearmint energize and uplift. Copaiba and Rosemary soothe anxious feelings to round out the calming blend.

I love the power of this oil combination blend. Here are just a few of the benefits it provides:

  • Calms and promotes positive feelings
  • Supports emotional balance and cognitive function
  • Helps when you are exposed to new situations and environments
  • Soothes and Uplifts
  • Encourages relaxation
  • Assists in centering
  • Increases feelings of tranquility

Whether you’re feeling fatigued or restless, indecisive or irritable, Adaptiv Calming Blend is part of the toolbox to help the body and mind stay balanced. Use Adaptiv Calming Blend in combination with the Adaptiv capsules for synergistic results. Learn more about the science behind the Adaptiv capsules here.

What Products are in the Adaptiv System

The products in the Adaptiv System include Calming Blend capsules, Adaptiv Touch in a roll-on, and Adaptiv Oil to use topically or in a diffuser. I love the peace and tranquility these products provide. Adaptiv products are a great way to create a spa experience right at home.

Adaptiv System - Three Items

Application and Use

When you are feeling restless, fatigued, or indecisive, Adaptiv supports centering and increases feelings of tranquility. These products may be purchased individually or together in the Adaptiv System.

Here are just a few ways you can use this powerful blend:

  • Soak in a relaxing Epsom Salt bath by adding three to four drops of Adaptiv oil to your bathwater.
  • Mix three drops of Adaptiv oil with Fractionated Coconut Oil for a soothing massage.
  • Diffuse Adaptiv oil in a room with a diffuser to promote a centered and calm mindset.
  • Apply one drop to your hands, rub together, and inhale deeply as needed throughout the day.
  • Massage into your shoulders and neck to ease tension and relieve fatigue.
  • Roll on your wrists and temples if you feel you need to regain composure quickly.
  • Apply to your pulse points to promote feelings of balance.

A Final Note

I hope you find a way to reduce stress and anxiety that fits your unique personality and lifestyle this summer and beyond. Take time for self-care, invest in yourself through dedicated “me” time, and find ways to laugh.

I want to thank everyone that stepped-up to help support the “Horses Bring Healing to Children” Matching Fundraiser at InStride Therapy. This fundraiser was sponsored by the doTERRA Healing Hands Foundation which supports many wonderful organizations in reaching their fundraising goals. The doTERRA HHF matched all donations that we received during the month of May. Together we were able to meet our goal of providing 10 children with weekly therapy scholarships at InStride Therapy for a full year. In fact, we exceeded our goal by $855! We are so grateful for everyone’s willingness to lend a hand. Thank you!

Warm Regards,

DrBrenda Yanofsky, EdD, LAc, Board Certified, NCCAOM, Diplomate Acupuncture Physician.
