April of 2022 will go down in the record books as one of the coldest, dreariest and wettest springs in Western Wisconsin and the Twin Cities.  I’m not one to usually let the weather bother me, but I have noticed the lack of sun has gotten to me this year.  Honestly, I have been a little irritable and not sleeping as well.  We need sunlight to set our circadian rhythm and help us feel awake and energized.

I of course turned to my essential oils to help uplift my mood and improve my sleep.  I have found the magic bullet for me, and it’s Cheer Essential Oil, Adaptiv Capsules, Adaptiv Essential Oil and Motivate Essential Oil!

Cheer Essential Oil 

doTERRA’s Cheer Essential Oil does exactly what it’s name implies — cheer you up!  It’s the perfect blend to diffuse or wear on diffuser jewelry on these cold, gray days this spring.  Cheer is doTERRA’s “uplifting blend” and contains a combo of Cinnamon Bark, Clove, Ginger, Lemon Myrtle, Nutmeg, Star Anise, Vanilla, Wild Orange and Zdravetz essential oils.  In addition to diffusing this delightful blend, I like to apply it topically to my pulse points and over my heart while repeating some positive affirmations.

Adaptiv Oil & Adaptiv Capsules

Adaptiv is doTERRA’s Calming Blend and is comprised of Copaiba, Lavender, Magnolia, Neroli, Rosemary, Spearmint, Sweetgum and Wild Orange Essential Oils.  Many of these individual oils are my go-to’s for uplifting and de-stressing and I find them even more powerful combined in this beautiful smelling blend.  I like to diffuse the oil at night in my bedroom for peaceful sleep.  I like to take 1 Adaptiv capsule before bed to ease any feelings of stress and help me relax for sleep.

Motivate Essential Oil

Motivate is doTERRA’s encouraging blend, and encourages you to be active and live your life to the fullest.  This blend contains Basil, Clementine, Coriander, Melissa, Peppermint, Rosemary and Vanilla essential oils.  Melissa is an expensive, but powerful essential oil  If you can’t afford to get Melissa into your collection, Motivate is a great blend to still get some Melissa into your home.  This blend inspires feelings of confidence and courage, and can help over come doubt and negative thoughts.  I think you will find this helpful in uplifting your mood and energizing you to encourage you to begin and complete your daily list of to-do’s.

I hope we get a spring this year, and don’t jump right into summer.  I find springtime always helps me feel renewed and hopeful.  These 3 essential oil blends and the Adaptiv capsules should help put a spring in your step until Mother Nature decides to bring on spring.
