Ever Wonder Why doTERRA Blends are SO Powerful?

Ever wonder why doTERRAโ€™s blends are powerful? ๐Ÿค”
doTERRA spends years, in some cases, studying and developing the perfect blend of oils and the perfect amount of each.
This post is all about, you guessed it, doTERRA Blends!
Iโ€™m going to break down each blend, its uses, and offer up some of my favorite diffuser and roller recipes using them.


This blend is perfect for relaxing the mind and body. Use it for your most stressful moments - a big day at work, PTA meetings, potty training - or other big events! Adaptiv is perfect for studying to increase focus, and to calm any nerves.
Adaptiv offers a soothing and calming aroma. This blend is made up of:
๐Ÿ’™ Wild Orange โ†’ Invigorating & sweet
๐Ÿ’™ Lavender โ†’ Calming & soothing
๐Ÿ’™ Copaiba โ†’ Calm & steady
๐Ÿ’™ Spearmint โ†’ Relieving & uplifting
๐Ÿ’™ Magnolia โ†’ Opening & heavenly
๐Ÿ’™ Rosemary โ†’ Refreshing & clearing
๐Ÿ’™ Neroli โ†’ Rejuvenating & tranquil
๐Ÿ’™ Sweetgum โ†’ Floral & spicy
In clinical research done by doTERRA, participants repeatedly commented feelings of calm, content, positive, and happy. โ€œParticipants self-reported having lower levels of stress and anxious feelingsโ€ฆโ€

Adaptiv is known for:
Mood support
Complementing effective work and study
Increasing feelings of tranquility
Being soothing and uplifting
Itโ€™s calming and relaxing aroma
Our love for Adaptiv runs deep. ๐Ÿ’“
It used every day at our house to ease the extremely anxious feelings that come with invisible disabilities. Two favorite diffuser blends that use Adaptiv are:
Easy Like Sunday Morning
๐Ÿ’ง 3 drops Adaptiv
๐Ÿ’ง 2 drops Tangerine
Try using this diffuser blend for that 3 PM slump:
๐Ÿ’ง 3 drops Eucalyptus
๐Ÿ’ง 2 drops Adaptiv
๐Ÿ’ง 1 drop Spearmint
Both of these diffuser blends are uplifting to the senses and grounding to the spirit.



If you could bottle up a crisp, sunny morning in a bottle, it would smell exactly like Air-X.

This blend is made up of:
๐Ÿ’™ Litsea โ†’ Refreshing & uplifting
๐Ÿ’™ Tangerine โ†’ Calming & uplifting
๐Ÿ’™ Grapefruit โ†’ Citrusy & fresh
๐Ÿ’™ Frankincense โ†’ Woody & calming

The purpose of this combination is to freshen the air around you. Not only will this smell amazing in your home, but it will also provide immune and respiratory support. It has a fresh and uplifting aroma, promotes clarity and openness, may be cleansing to your environment.

Try diffusing this blend solo or add Lavender and Wild Orange to the mix.

Citrus Bliss

Citrus Bliss is one of my absolute favorites!  I use it everyday to energize and uplift mood.

Citrus Bliss is also known as the Invigorating Blend. This blend expertly combines the powerful scents of Wild Orange, Lemon, Grapefruit, Mandarin, Bergamot, Tangerine, and Clementine with a hint of Vanilla Absolute to form this unique and harmonious blend.

Citrus Bliss has natural and potent cleansing properties. Diffuse for an uplifting aroma that cleanses the air or add it to a spray bottle of water to wipe down countertops and sinks.
One of my favorite oils to diffuse with Citrus Bliss is Wintergreen (3 drops each). You can thank me later.


Need a bit more grounding in your life?
โ˜€๏ธ Balance is a blend that every single person should have at their fingertips for daily use (in my humble opinion). ๐Ÿ’š The combination of Spruce, Ho Wood, Frankincense, Blue Tansy, Blue Chamomile and Osmanthus will keep you feeling grounded all day long.

Try this diffuser blend for a zen-like atmosphere:
Zen Diffuser Blend
๐Ÿ’ง 3 drops Balance

Before your feet even touch the floor, ground yourself first thing in the morning by applying Balance to the bottoms of your feet. Use throughout the day as needed. You can even double-up and use this as an all-natural pure-fume!
Balance is a staple in my house for helping to ground the sometimes hyper, excited, and stressed feelings that come with invisible disabilities.

Liquid Calm

Citrus Bloom

When Citrus Bloom was announced as a permanent product, I may or may not have done a happy dance. It is the perfect combination of florals and citrus. (Not a bad bedtime diffuser blend either with all those calming oils.)

๐ŸŒธ Roman Chamomile

It is also helpful to roll across the stomach during โ€œthat time of the monthโ€ to alleviate stomach discomfort.

A Lot of people I know use Tea Tree in their flowerโ€™s water to extend their freshness and keep them from drooping. ๐Ÿ’
Next time try DDR Prime. It can extend the life of my bouquets for a minimum of 2 weeks.
When you pick up your next bouquet, fill your vase with lukewarm tap water, add 3-5 drops of DDR Prime, cut each stem on an angle, and add to your vase.
Top with fresh water and 1 drop of DDR Prime every 3-4 days. Keep those blooms at peak perfection longer!

I can tell you, that I was a little skeptical about using essential oils at first, but the more I used them, the more they worked. DigestZen made me an all-out believer.

DigestZen is a true unsung hero. Love or hate the licorice aroma, you cannot deny how well this blend works. Do you get a certain uneasiness before you travel?  Inhaling the calming aroma of DigestZen from the bottle or drinking or a drop or two in water, can make the trip much easier.  DigestZen has also been known to promote satisfaction after eating a meal. Of course, with kids in the home, DigestZen may make tummies happier when they are uneasy.

I always love a good oil hack, and this one is one of my favorites. While Lavender, Frankincense, and Tea Tree have the lowdown on boo-boos, Purify is perfect for those occasional bug bites and ๐Ÿ stings.
In the area of concern, take one drop of Purify and apply directly. The feelings of itching and discomfort will soon vanish. You can thank me later!
