Doterra essential oils and products have proven to be particularly supportive for anxiousness and emotional well being. This past September, DoTERRA introduced a brand new line that is extremely calming, centering and soothing. The Adaptiv line has 3 products: an undiluted 15 ml essential oil blend called “Adaptiv”, “Adaptiv Touch”which is the same blend prediluted in a 10 ml roller bottle, and Adaptiv capsules.
Adaptiv 15 ml blend and Adaptiv Touch
This blend is made up of lavender, magnolia, neroli, sweet gum, wild orange, spearmint, copaiba and rosemary. It reduces feelings of anxiousness and tension. Use Adaptiv blend at night to shut down an overactive brain. Use adaptiv through the day to complement effective work and study; and at times when you need to boost your mood and feel uplifted. The 15 ml blend is for diffusing and topical application. The 10 ml roller bottle blend can be carried with you for convenient rolling on – on the go.
Adaptiv Calming Capsules
Adaptiv calming capsules are unique as they have a plant based omega 3 fat that is helpful to our brain which is made up of mostly fats. The omega 3 content of the adaptiv capsule helps the brain stay balanced and will support healthy cognitive function and mood. It is particularly supportive when getting used to new surroundings and adapting to stressful situations. Adaptiv capsules encourage relaxation, positive feelings and mental well being.
How do Essential Oils Effect Mood and Emotions?
Essential oils are effective in altering our mood because the olfactory nerves and bulb (for smelling) are directly beside the limbic part of the brain which accounts for emotions and memories. Essential oils are natural volatile compounds meaning that they go from liquid to gas. This makes it very easy for them to enter the brain through the olfactory nerves creating small chemical changes within the neighbouring limbic area. Essential oils are a form of energy medicine having a high vibration. A healthy state of mind and a healthy body have a high vibration. In energy medicine we try to raise an individuals energy (or vibration) to obtain better physical and emotional health. As the energy of the oil raises the vibration within our brain and body, we feel better. As we use the oils consistently, we consistently have a higher vibration and things begin to fall into place; we make better choices and experience prolonged well being. When memory is snuggled in the limbic area as well, memory, emotion and aroma can all 3 trigger each other! This means that over time, the smell of an oil will trigger the sense of well being that it has provided in previous applications! We can enhance this process by deliberately creating a desired state of mind each time we smell an oil. For example, deliberately calm thyself and breathe deeply as you enjoy the smell of Adaptiv. This will fast track the association in the brain and make the aroma that much more effective in achieving calmness and focus. Another method is to grab for your oil each time you are feeling well and balanced. Smell or apply the oil while appreciating your current sense of wellbeing. This anchors the association between the oil and your wellbeing and makes the desired result easier to obtain in future applications. Isn’t is cool that we can harness this interplay for our benefit?!!
