My life has been a tad overwhelming lately. Our oldest son has been having issues with mental health and drug abuse, and it has caused me to feel anxious and out of control. If you combine that with the uncertainty of 2020 and now 2021, my feelings of overwhelm are overflowing (and it’s not a typical issue for me).
Calming Essential Oils
Adaptiv is a daily need for me right now; I am definitely drawn to this blend. I gave my Adaptiv capsules to a friend who was in need, so haven’t had those to take. Just placed an order to get the Adaptiv Capsules ASAP, because I know they will help! Adaptiv is doTERRA’s calming blend, and helps when feelings of irritability, stress, fatigue and indecisiveness are present. I like to diffuse this, wear on diffuser jewelry and apply to my pulse points. Sometimes I inhale right out of the bottle when I am really frazzled. I find this scent calms me down, so that I am able to examine my feelings and cope with what is going on in my life.
Forgive and Peace are both blends from doTERRA’s emotional aromatherapy line that I have also been using daily. Forgive is a woodsy aroma and helps me release negative thoughts and emotions. If I’m being honest, I have been a little resentful of how hard my son’s issues have made our lives lately. While I know he can’t help it, our lives have been turned upside down. Forgive helps me release some of the feelings, so I can move on with my day in a positive way. Peace is doTERRA’s reassuring blend, and it’s an understatement to say I need some reassurance with the decisions we are faced with making lately. I like to diffuse this in the afternoon; it helps me feel composed and allows me to focus and deal with the issues of the day.
Frankincense is another oil I can’t get enough of lately. Frankincense has always helped calm me down, and regulate my emotions. I also like knowing that it helps with healthy cellular function (because I also worry about what the stress we are under does to our bodies). I drink a glass of water with 2 drops of Lemon and 1 drop of Frankincense each morning before my coffee. It helps me start my day right, and knowing I am doing something healthy for my body and spirit. I also like to diffuse Frankincense at night with a calming oil to help me relax and sleep well.
Supplements To Relieve Stress
doTERRA’s LifeLong Vitality Supplements are another daily must-have in my wellness arsenal. I have taken this powerhouse three pack for about 4 1/2 years, and won’t go a day without it (definitely notice if I do forget). This well-researched trio of whole food supplements includes a multi-vitamin/mineral, an omega and a cellular health complex. I feel it helps me in so many ways including energy, concentration and just plain feeling great in general.
