Stress is often referred to as the 21st century syndrome.. The most powerful thing you can do for your health is to learn to create healthy boundaries around your schedule and what you allow to come into your life through TV, social media, and toxic people. Creating a daily self care routine to encourage harmony within your thoughts and body is a beautiful way to reverse the effects of stress on your mental and physical health. Just a few moments of day, with deep inhales and exhales, and a few magical plant medicines in the form of essential oil can be life changing!

Adaptiv:

The calming blend, because stress and pressure in our society can feel relentless. 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. Whether you’re feeling fatigued or restless, indecisive or irritable, Adaptiv Calming Blend is part of the toolbox to help the body and mind to stay balanced.

Balance:

This blend is primarily a combination of tree oils and roots – spruce, rosewood, frankincense and blue tansy. It promotes tranquility, connectedness and well-being and has a powerful effect on the central nervous system. The energy of trees are in the present moment, they are stable, they are not in a hurry… it’s this soft energy that helps us reconnect to our own roots and stay in the present moment. Balance helps calm emotions, lessen stress, and it has an amazing effect of bringing you out of your head and INTO your body.
